Cybersecurity has become an extremely relevant and pressing issue with the passing of time, and is only about to increase in importance. The explosion of Big Data and its increasing exposure to the connected world bares it open to many threats including invasion of piracy and security. Hence it has become number one priority for organizations to protect their technology, IP and business advantage, not to mention confidential data for many of their customers. Authentication, though a small segment, is instrumental in securing digital and analogue processes across industry verticals.
Frost & Sullivan’s Information Technology research and consulting programs look at conventional and unconventional technologies, with specific focus on top-level potential disruptors such as cybersecurity, SMAC, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IOT or the Internet of Things. In the authentication market, we look at:
- Payment platforms
- Smart cards
- Media devices
- Big data security
- Content Protection
- Digital Rights Management (DRM)
- Conditional Access System (CAS)
We work closely with the world’s largest IT firms and upcoming disruptive start-ups to predict macro and micro trends related to products, services, technology and business models that can define growth. Tailored, customized solutions provide clients with the best strategies for growth, supported by the right key data points researched to meet the client’s needs and the specific engagement.
