Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Passive Authentication Market (Pre and Post COVID Analysis)
COVID-19 pandemic has caused a severe economic slowdown and the present crisis is only exacerbating the pattern of global economic reliance on the Internet, which remains a crucial strategic global business engine. According to the World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report 2020, there is an increase in the cybersecurity risk, cyber threats, and data theft. Owing to the above factor,, the market for passive authentication is set to gain traction. Proper authentication of consumers and users are of grave importance in today’s business environment to ensure the safety and privacy of crucial assets. Key players of the passive authentication market have implemented strong strategies to aid these organizations. For instance, Purilock, a Canadian security services provider, offers passive authentication to make authentication and identification even easier. Plurilock ADAPT's invisible MFA technology is a form of passive authentication that adds many additional identity verification factors to existing login prompts without the user doing anything extra.
Top impacting factors
Increase in demands of passive authentication in modern-day businesses:
Passive authentication measures are helping organizations to expand their reach by integrating new capabilities and provide newer opportunities to their consumers. One of them is providing more accessible and convenient authentication services. For instance, in April 2018, Passive authentication startup UnifyID has announced its frictionless online and physical dynamic probability and confidence scoring technology has reached general availability. Alternatively, identity signals are collected as they enter their username and password, allowing for much better identity authentication without any of the users having to do any additional work.
Furthermore, passive authentication services are now easier to introduce and use, because of the rapid advancement of personal digital electronics technology industry, which has allowed individuals to accommodate a variety of sensors and resources in their pockets. This greatly simplifies and accelerates user authentication and impacts the growth of the passive authentication market.
Cloud segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Rise in data privacy and security concerns
There has been a rise in the importance of data security making it mandatory to introduce stringent compliance and regulatory policies that governments and other concerned regulatory bodies have introduced to safeguard sensitive data after the world witnessed many discerning cyber threats and attacks on big data servers and their analysis methods.
Policies such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced by the European union that enforces seven principles of-lawfulness, fairness, and transparency; Purpose limitation; Data minimization;
Accuracy: Storage limitation; Integrity and confidentiality (security) and Accountability. GDPR aims for appropriate personal data processing. Processing involves collecting, arranging, structuring, storing, changing, informing, utilizing, interacting, merging, limiting, removing, or destroying personal data. Compliance policies like GDPR and other similar regulations make a business adopt big data security solutions into their big data environment.
APAC is projected as one of the most significant region.

According to CXOs of the major companies, the passive authentication market is experiencing a rapid growth, owing to increase in demand for passive security measures within various industrial sectors. Passive authentication measures are helping organizations to expand their reach by integrating new capabilities and provide newer opportunities to their consumers. One of them is providing accessible and convenient authentication services. For instance, Canadian passive authentication services provider Purilock offers passive authentication to make authentication much faster. Plurilock ADAPT's invisible MFA technology is a form of passive authentication that introduces several additional identity verification factors to existing login prompts without the user taking any additional steps.
Passive authentication saves time for both the organizations and its users by quickly verifying known users and customers using seamless data collection and pattern recognition. These tools are used to figure out things like writing/typing patterns, walking styles, and others. For instance, regardless of what is being written, every individual has identifiable movement patterns. These patterns, when combined with machine learning, create a clear and unique identity signature for that individual. Similarly, sensors onboard smartphones, wearables, and PDAs monitor various users' walking and movement patterns, which are then used to identify and authenticate the individual user, granting them seamless access to specific services like faster monetary transactions.
The passive authentication market is competitive and comprises a number of regional and global vendors competing based on factors such as cost of solutions & services, reliability, efficiency of products, and support services. The market is concentrated with major players consuming 50-55% of the share. The degree of concentration is expected to remain same during the forecast period. Furthermore, rise in number of fraud and theft cases within both commercial and industrial sectors has urged strong need for effective authentication services, thereby creating a strong foundation for the growth of the passive authentication market during the forecast period.
