Global Hardware One Time Password (OTP) Token Authentication Market 2014-2018

According to the "Global Hardware One Time Password (OTP) Token Authentication Market 2014-2018" report Hardware OTP authentication is a two-factor authentication solution that enables secure remote network access and digital signature functionality with the help of a physical hardware authenticator or a secure token. Hardware OTP utilizes a separate device or a security token issued to a user to generate a password that acts as a second factor for authentication. There are different types of tokens such as OTP tokens, USB tokens, SIM tokens, and mini tokens. These are required for added security in critical infrastructures and in companies that witness a high level of online activity. Since hardware OTP tokens provide a second layer of secure authentication, it becomes difficult for attackers to hack into a user’s system. Even in cases of identity theft, attackers will not be able to cause any harm unless they have access to the secure hardware token.

Analysts forecast the Global Hardware One-time Password Token (OTP) Authentication market will grow at a CAGR of 9.96 percent during the period 2014-2018.

The Report recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Hardware One Time Password (OTP) Token Authentication Market: Gemanlto N.V., RSA Security Inc., SafeNet Inc., VASCO Data Security International Inc., ActivIdentity Corp., Deepnet Security Ltd., Entrust Inc., Gemalto N.V., ID Control, RSA Security Inc., SafeNet Technology Ltd., Symantec Corp., VASCO Data Security International Inc., Yubico AB.

The Global Authentication market comprises software and hardware authentication solutions. Despite the respective advantages and disadvantages of software and hardware authentication solutions, the segments are expected to coexist. Some industries that are more cost conscious will adopt software authentication solutions, whereas large enterprises with traditional setups will adopt hardware authentication solutions. Hence, vendors are introducing a unified platform that can provide both hardware and software authentication solutions. This unified platform will also help authentication vendors reduce costs since they would not need to maintain separate platforms and modules. Additionally, this could help increase the adoption of hardware OTP token authentication solutions as a unified platform to enable end-users to switch easily to other hardware OTP token authentication solutions.
