Gemalto is once again positioned as a leader in Gartner User Authentication Magic Quadrant
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of how Gartner positions authentication vendors in the marketplace, following its research each year. Gartner categorizes the vendors in the "niche players," "visionaries," "challengers" or "leaders" quadrant. A company's ability to execute and completeness of vision affect their position inside each quadrant.
Gemalto is once again positioned as a leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Authentication. Every year, Gartner, Inc. performs an independent, in-depth analysis of vendors in the user authentication marketplace.
According to Gartner, leaders in this Magic Quadrant are vendors with a solid track record and, typically, a significant presence in the market. They have a clearly articulated vision that is in line with the market trends, and their vision is typically backed by solid technical innovation, as well as an understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by the Nexus of Forces. Leaders' business strategies and execution are very sound. Vendors in this quadrant can provide a strong solution for enterprises in different vertical industries across one or many use cases, typically including emerging needs pertaining to cloud and mobile. *
According to Gartner, by year-end 2016, about 30% of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations – up from about 10% today. *
