Two recent research studies by the Aberdeen Group indicate a shift in the market for end user authentication solutions.
The research indicates that the number of organizations considering one-time password (OTP) solutions for end user authentication dropped dramatically during first half of 2011. Over the same period, the number of organizations considering solutions based on smart card authentication had grown significantly. Aberdeen points to the recent security breach affecting the RSA SecurID OTP product as the likely cause for the shift in the market.
The research report, “The Case for Smart Cards”, is available on the Aberdeen Group’s website. A complimentary copy of the report is available by clicking here.
