Worms, Germany, 13 July 2020 – KOBIL GmbH, a leading provider of digital identity and application security solutions, announced that it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for User Authentication report.

According to Gartner, “The rapid adoption of cloud services hugely increases enterprises’ exposure to phishing and other attacks, which in turn drives new investment in multi-factor authentication (MFA), among other cloud security controls. Access management (AM) vendors are the preferred authentication providers in cloud-first enterprises. Those able to meet legacy needs can displace incumbent authentication vendors. Client interest in passwordless authentication continues to build. However, there are many ways to eliminate passwords, and technological constraints make a single universal approach exclusive. Smartphones are often central to MFA strategy or innovations, but this focus risks alienating people without smartphones for whom alternative methods are less secure or have poorer UX.”

KOBIL mIDLogin, the unique strong user authentication product for realtime corroboration to improve user, data, communication and application security. All logins are protected by Digitanium, KOBIL's end-to-end encrypted channel, instantly mitigating the risks of phishing, identity theft, app manipulation, user impersonation and ‘man in the middle’ attacks. Data confidentiality and integrity is paramount – any time, any place, and in full regulatory compliance. Gartner predicts, “By 2023, 60% of large and global enterprises, and 80% of MSEs, will deploy MFA capabilities consolidated with AM or similar tools, which is an increase from 10% and 25%, respectively, today,“ and “by 2023, 40% of large and global enterprises will use an orchestration tool (likely an AM tool) to enable cohesive implementation of disparate orthodox and analytics-based authentication methods.“
