Appgate named as a 2021 Technology Leader in the Risk-Based Authentication (RBA) Market by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions

(September 6, 2021) -- Quadrant Knowledge Solutions recently announced that it has named Appgate as a 2021 technology leader in the SPARK Matrix analysis of the global Risk-Based Authentication (RBA) market.

The Quadrant Knowledge Solutions SPARK Matrix™ includes a detailed analysis of global Risk-Based Authentication (RBA) market dynamics, major trends, vendor landscape, and competitive positioning. The study provides competitive analysis and ranking of the major RBA vendors in the form of SPARK Matrix™, providing strategic information for users to evaluate different vendor capabilities, competitive differentiation, and market positions.

The Global RBA market is witnessing massive growth driven by continued investments in the RBA solution to protect users and organizations from cyberattacks and fraudsters while offering a seamless user experience. According to the research, “SPARK Matrix: Risk-Based Authentication (RBA), 2021,” a majority of the RBA solutions provide basic capabilities to offer users safe access to applications, accounts, and sites by delving deep into the analysis of contextual factors like user ID, device ID, location, network type, login time, consecutive login failures, IP address, behavioral patterns, day/time, and such others. The solutions offer comprehensive capabilities, including a risk scoring engine, authentication mechanism (MFA), self-service management, alert and case management, and visualization and reporting. However, the breadth and depth of functionalities may differ between different vendors’ offerings. Driven by the increasing competition and emergence of a variety of vendors with different technological strengths, RBA vendors are increasingly looking at improving their product and market strategy and overall technology value proposition to remain competitive. The primary differentiators to evaluate RBA solutions include the sophistication of technology capabilities, technology vision & roadmap, vendor’s expertise, and domain knowledge, integration and interoperability, and use of AI, ML, and advanced analytics.
