The multi-factor authentication is segmented on the basis of model, deployment, and application.

By model type, the market is segmented into two-factor authentication, multi-factor with three-factor authentication, multi-factor with four-factor authentication, and multi-factor with five-factor authentication. The two-factor authentication segment is sub-segmented into smartcard with pin, smart card with biometric technology, biometric technology with pin, and smart-card with pin. Similarly, the three-factor authentication is segmented into three-factor biometric technology, smart card with two-factor biometric technologies, pin with two-factor biometric technologies, and smart card with pin & biometric technology. The two-factor authentication model is highly popular globally as this model enables organizations to authenticate digital identities of users using multiple parameters such as knowledge-based factors, possession-based factors, and inherence-based factors.
