Gartner’s 2020 “Market Guide for User Authentication” Report

Secret Double Octopus is proud to be included in Gartner’s “Market Guide for User Authentication” report for the 3rd time

As one of the world’s most renowned research companies, Gartner regularly examines the user authentication landscape and reports important industry trends, technological innovations and emerging market needs. This year’s report contains several interesting findings such as the growing demand for a modern authentication method fitting legacy systems, the wish to eliminate passwords throughout whole organizations, and the wide range of authenticator types needed in large companies to support all use-cases and changing user’s demands.

Secret Double Octopus’s solution is uniquely suited to answer these needs and many more. Our Passwordless Enterprise‌™ technology gives organizations of any size and with any infrastructure a holistic solution fitting all business use cases – be it workstations, remote network access, cloud application or on-prem legacy systems. Moreover, the ability to integrate with the world’s leading IAMs and directory services (including on-prem Active Directory, Okta, ForgeRock and others) combined with the Octopus Credential Provider for workstations delivers a best-of-breed enterprise solution that revolutionizes the way IT teams manage user authentication.
The use of a highly secure, multi-channel communication method makes the phone-based Octopus Authenticator uniquely protected against user-side and man-in-the-middle attacks. And as a FIDO-certified authentication system, Octopus supports common alternatives such as physical security keys and 3rd party authentication apps without losing anything in security or usability.

“We feel extremely privileged to be included once again in Gartner’s Market Guide for User Authentication. The last few months brought about an unprecedented change in workforce habits and remote access needs in almost any organization around the world, certainly for large global enterprises. We are very proud to be able to offer a unique technology that frees enterprise users and IT teams from the cumbersome task of managing passwords and its associated security risks.”
Raz Rafaeli, CEO of Secret Double Octopus.
