This IDC Market Perspective details key trends and developments affecting the European market for identity and digital trust (IDT) solutions. The COVID-19 pandemic forced European organizations to adapt to remote, digital transactions and processes to ensure business continuity and, in the longer term, maintain competitive advantage. That holds true from a B2E, B2C, and B2P perspective. The study looks at how the various submarkets within the identity space factor into broader business imperatives and how competition in the space is driving responses from identity solution vendors.
"Managing users, identities, and access in the digital era is a challenge for all organizations. Converging imperatives of security, regulation, user experience must be addressed against a backdrop of accelerated digital transformation, infrastructure and process complexity, and a need for scalability. Identity vendors have a key role to play in enabling their customers to navigate out of the current crisis and establish themselves as trusted, future-ready enterprises." — Research Manager Mark Child, IDC European Security
