Advanced Authentication is a form of IT security that requires more than one factor to authenticate a user. It is used to protect sensitive data and systems from unauthorized access. Advanced Authentication typically involves a combination of something the user knows (e.g. a password), something the user has (e.g. a token or smart card), and something the user is (e.g. biometrics). This multi-factor authentication provides a higher level of security than traditional authentication methods.
Advanced Authentication is used in a variety of industries, including banking, healthcare, government, and retail. It is also used to protect access to cloud-based applications and services.
Some companies in the Advanced Authentication market include Microsoft, IBM, RSA Security, Symantec, and Entrust. Show Less Read more
