Top Companies in the Phone-Based Authentication Market

Digital Content Market

Enterprises, especially SMEs, are aggressively pushing for the adoption of bring your own device (BYOD) policies. And while more smartphones in the office generally means a more mobile, smarter workforce, it also leaves organizational data open to security threats.  

This jump in BYOD policies is expected to boost the phone based authentication services market at a CAGR of nearly 50% from 2014-2019, as more and more companies seek to leverage mobility in the workplace.
