Gartner’s Magic Quadrant positions Gemalto as a leader in user authentication

Amsterdam, December 18, 2014 – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has again been positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s December 1, 2014 Magic Quadrant for User Authentication, out of the 18 vendors assessed by Gartner. The vendors surveyed in the Magic Quadrant are evaluated based on two main criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Gartner predicts that, by year-end 2017, about 50% of organizations will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations, up from about 20% today. To address this booming market, Gemalto leverages its deep understanding of authentication and mobile technology to deliver trusted and proven solutions while addressing customers’ need for mobility, in-device security and employees who bring their own devices (BYOD).

Thousands of the world’s largest banks, enterprises, service providers and governments use Gemalto’s innovative authentication solutions to safeguard access to their physical and digital assets. Gemalto’s cutting-edge technology secures a wide range of enterprise & eBanking applications for employee and customer services. Organizations can take advantage of convenient multi-factor authentication with an extensive spectrum of PKI-based multi-applications, token and mobile generated one-time passwords and digital signatures. The comprehensive Ezio and Protiva portfolio are designed to fully equip customers for easy deployment of their cloud-hosted or on-premise authentication solutions.

This year, Gemalto and SafeNet, are joining forces to accelerate the deployment of advanced security solutions for the enterprise space. The integration of SafeNet into Gemalto’s authentication offering combines the best technologies, expertise and services available for securing a complete infrastructure: network, users, data, and software, at the core and at the edge.

“We believe Gemalto’s recognition as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant comes from our strong understanding of the user authentication market and commitment to innovation,” said Tan Teck Lee, Executive Vice President of Platforms & Services at Gemalto. “Gemalto’s investment in providing customers with innovative authentication technology, strong mobile security solutions and enhanced cloud-based offers and services is the driving force behind our position as a leader in authentication.”
