$28.34 Billion Multi-factor Authentication Market – Global Growth, Trends, and Forecasts 2021-2026 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

The “Multi-factor Authentication Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The multi-factor authentication market was valued at USD 10.64 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 28.34 billion by 2026 and grow at a CAGR of 17.83% over the forecast period (2021-2026).

Blockchain and decentralized authentication systems are coming in trends, which may replace centralized data and application servers with a network of computers that encrypt, store data, and stay in sync with each other. The general concept is to represent user identities with encryption key-pairs, which can be tied to additional parameters, such as the user’s biometric data instead of passwords, to make a high authentification.

The growing number of cyberattacks across enterprises is driving the market, as nearly half of all cyberattacks target small businesses, with mostly ransomware attacks and hijacking corporate online and financial accounts. OneLogin’s own authentication app, OneLogin Protect, allows the users to verify their identities via their smartphones. It also integrates with other third-party authentication factors, like Google Authenticator and Yubico’s YubiKeys, and provides a single sign-on option for the company’s desktops.

Password has been a traditional source of authentication for a while now. However, hackers often exploit this single gateway to access the records of the users and companies and are causing losses worth billions to these entities. A recent study by Verizon suggests that “compromised identities” represent the top reason for security breaches. In 2019, the number of data breaches in the United States amounted to 1,473, with over 164.68 million sensitive records exposed, according to the survey data published by the Identity Theft Resource Center.

Additionally, according to Google, users who added a recovery phone number to their accounts (and indirectly enabled SMS-based MFA) were also enhancing their account security. The companies study shows that simply adding a recovery phone number to Google Account can block up to 100% of automated bots, 99% of bulk phishing attacks, and 66% of targeted attacks that occurred during its investigation.

During the situation of a global pandemic, the demand for remote work solutions has seen a surge due to organizations transitioning from their conventional workplace methods to work from home scenarios. These impacts have to be carefully concerned in the context of the organization’s cybersecurity as more and more personal unsecured devices start accessing the organization network; the risk of compromising network security goes up.
