Multi-factor authentication is a technique for enhancing security systems with the help of two or more forms of authentication that are not related to each other. It is used to develop an extra layer of protection against unauthorized access. A multi-factor authentication system mainly uses credentials such as passwords, pins, mobile phones, security tokens, smart cards, and biometrics for authentication. A multi-factor authentication system relies on the following factors: “something the user knows”, “something the user has”, and “something the user is”. These factors must be authenticated by the user in a multi-factor authentication process.
Analysts forecast the Global Multi-factor Authentication market will grow at a CAGR of 19.31 percent over the period 2013-2018.
