IDC PlanScape: Deploying Multifactor Authentication

Author: Mike Chapple
Adjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC study provides senior technology leaders with a multifaceted approach to multifactor authentication.

"Multifactor authentication is a time-tested approach that is finally coming of age," says Mike Chapple, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Organizations recognize that they face an increasing threat from the compromise of password-based credentials; knowledge-based authentication simply doesn't provide an adequate level of protection against those threats. Push-based authentication using smartphones is both simple for end users and cost-effective for the organization."
