Passive Authentication Market Synopsis

The passive authentication market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 22.6% during the forecast period and reach $1351.3 million by 2023.

Enterprises install Context Directory Agent (CDA) in the enterprise network to collect user identity information. This information is collected when users log into the network. This type of identity mapping is considered passive identity mapping. With passive authentication, the user identity is obtained by checking a mapping of IP addresses to user identity. Authentication is passive because the user is not prompted to provide credentials.

 The major factor contributing to the market growth is the increasing demand for seamless authentication process from enterprises acrosssectors. Another factor is the increasing demand from enterprises to deliver enhanced user experience. The concerns regarding the privacy of biometrics are proving to be a restraint for this market. The market has various opportunities such as increasing adoption of the biometric technology for authentication and fraud detection. Along with this, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly being implemented for authentication. The acceptance of Internet of Things (IoT) in all industry verticals is also expected to be a lucrative opportunity for the passive authentication market.
