Gartner's Magic Quadrant confirms Gemalto as a leader in user authentication


Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, has again been positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for User Authentication published at the end of 2013. The Magic Quadrant represents the strategic analysis of key vendors who are measured on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Gartner predicts that, by year-end 2016, about 30 percent of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations – up from about 10 percent today. Addressing the growing movement toward mobile and cloud, Gemalto has been introducing a range of innovative products which deliver the same high security level as traditional strong authentication solutions while addressing users’ need for mobility, new devices and employees who bring their own devices (BYOD).

Gemalto’s Protiva range of authentication solutions covers a wide range of enterprise applications, from providing PKI-based multi-application access badges for large enterprises to versatile one-time-password solutions designed for ease of implementation for smaller organizations. Gemalto’s new Protiva Cloud Confirm solution is a highly scalable authentication solution dedicated to public and private Cloud Service Providers. The recently announced CloudEntr service furthermore adds an Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) offer which enables cost-effective and speedy deployment of advanced web-based single-sign-on combined with strong authentication, seamlessly integrating into any IT infrastructure while complying with stringent industry standards.

“We believe Gemalto’s recognition as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant comes from our strong understanding of the user authentication market and commitment to innovation,” says Tan Teck Lee, Executive Vice President Platforms & Services at Gemalto. “With global trends moving towards us for securing the mobile and cloud, we continue to work to create solutions that provide enterprises and their users with the optimal balance of convenience and security, while being universally compatible with mobile technology.”

Gemalto supplies a broad range of authentication software and services to thousands of the world’s largest enterprises, financial institutions, service providers and governments. Gemalto’s range of IDaaS, Protiva, and Ezio solutions includes an expansive portfolio of authentication tools and services for enterprises.
