London: The leading information technology research and advisory company Gartner, Inc. recently published its “Magic Quadrant for User Authentication” (Ant Allan, March 7, 2013) and SecurEnvoy, a specialist in tokenless two-factor authentication, is now positioned in the “visionaries” category. Based on Gartner’s criteria, SecurEnvoy believes this means it has demonstrated a well-structured vision which is in line with market trends and has hit the mark. According to Gartner, newer wide- and tight-focus vendors are making significant inroads and offer enterprises sound alternatives across a range of needs. Market researchers also estimate that by 2017 more than 50% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations — up from less than 10% today.

 

SecurEnvoy’s main product for user authentication is called SecurAccess. This server-based software enables clear and unambiguous identification of users without the need for additional tokens, as mobile end devices, such as smartphones, laptops and netbooks, are used as the second factor required for authentication purposes. This device receives the multiple digit passcode required for login purposes via an SMS or an app. The user then combines this code with access data known only to him or her in order to log in.

“We consider our classification as ‘Visionary’ recognition of our adoption in the market, the acceptance of ‘tokenless’ which we brought to market and the combination of our capability to execute and our visionary outlook has moved our position, which has been moving up every year in the Magic Quadrant”, comments Steve Watts, Sales and Marketing Director at SecurEnvoy. “With our new version soon to be released we will continue in keeping with our motto at SecurEnvoy: We lead where others follow in this market.

Andy Kemshall, CTO at SecurEnvoy, adds: “We are pleased to finally be positioned as a visionary. We feel this recognises our ground breaking work as the inventers and leaders of next generation tokenless authentication. This would not have been able without our great team. Everyone works passionately to keep up our success and improve our portfolio.”
