EZMCOM Recognised in Market Guide for User Authentication

EZMCOM, Inc. (“EZMCOM”), an emerging leader in Fraud & Risk Management, Identity Access Management solutions has been recognised in Gartner’s Market Guide for User Authentication. Earlier this year, Gartner had featured EZMCOM in “Hype Cycle for Risk Management, 2017”, “Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management, 2017” and “Technology Insight for Public-Key Authentication Tokens”.

According to market definition,

User authentication is the real-time corroboration (with an implied or notional con dence or level of trust) of a person’s claim to an identity previously established to enable their access to an electronic or digital asset.

According to Gartner Recommendation, Security and risk management leaders responsible for delivering effective identity and access management capabilities should:

  • Seek user authentication methods that best provide the necessary balance among trust, TCO and UX/CX in each use case. Identify candidate vendors that can deliver these methods across multiple use cases.
  • Look for vendor differentiation in breadth of capability and in experience and expertise in a relevant vertical market, such as retail banking and healthcare, rather than focusing on legacy products and services that are increasingly commoditized and horizontal.
  • Seek products and services that integrate rich analytics and adaptive techniques with robust orthodox, credential-based authentication methods, especially in enterprises taking a lean- forward stance to address advanced threats that exploit user credentials.

According to Ant Allan, research vice president at Gartner,

“Although device-embedded fingerprint modes are commonly integrated in mobile banking apps, face and voice are emerging as the modes of choice, with some adoption of scleral vein and camera-based fingerprint modes. These will likely gain traction in other mobile use cases in the near future. Behavioral modes are typically consumed as familiarity signals by fraud detection and other analytics-focused tools.”
EZMCOM provides a comprehesive suite of emerging technologies such as Biometric Authentication (Face, Voice, Behavioural), Phone-as-a-Token, X509v3 Public Key Token Identity and Access Management technologies that integrate with various industry leading IdaaS, IDAM platforms.

EZMCOM has been featured for its breadth and depth of offerings in the “Wide-Focus User Authentication Vendors”, providing customers a choice to adopt a user convenient security approach.
