ID Control is listed in the TechNavio report as a prominent player in the Multi Factor Authentication market for 2014-2018.
Multi-factor authentication is a technique for enhancing security systems with the help of two or more forms of authentication that are not related to each other. It is used to develop an extra layer of protection against unauthorized access. A multi-factor authentication system mainly uses credentials such as passwords, pins, mobile phones, security tokens, smart cards, and biometrics for authentication. A multi-factor authentication system relies on the following factors: "something the user knows", "something the user has", and "something the user is". These factors must be authenticated by the user in a multi-factor authentication process.
Technavio forecasts The Global Multifactor Authentication market to grow at a CAGR of 19.1 percent for the period 2012–2016 and 19.31 percent over the period 2013-2018.
Next to that, TechNavio's analysts forecast the Multifactor Authentication market in South Korea and Japan to grow at a CAGR of 31.4 and 31.3 percent in South Korea and Japan respectively over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market’s growth is increased incidences of security attacks in Government departments. The Multifactor Authentication market in South Korea and Japan has also been witnessing increased collaboration between the IT security vendors of these two countries. However, the high implementation costs of multifactor authentication solutions could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Multi-factor Authentication market for the period 2014-2018. The report covers the different forms of multi-factor authentication solutions, i.e., two-factor authentication and three-factor authentication. To calculate the market size, it considers revenue generated from OTP hardware tokens, smart card-based authentication, and phone-based authentication. The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top four vendors in the Global Multi-factor Authentication market. However, it does not include those companies that provide only services and do not have their own product. In addition, the report discusses the major drivers that influence the growth of the market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends emerging in the market.

ID Control is listed in the TechNavio report as a prominent player in the OTP authentication market.
Hardware OTP authentication is a two-factor authentication solution that enables secure remote network access and digital signature functionality with the help of a physical hardware authenticator or a secure token. Hardware OTP utilizes a separate device or a security token issued to a user to generate a password that acts as a second factor for authentication. There are different types of tokens such as OTP tokens, USB tokens, SIM tokens, and mini tokens. These are required for added security in critical infrastructures and in companies that witness a high level of online activity. Since hardware OTP tokens provide a second layer of secure authentication, it becomes difficult for attackers to hack into a user's system. Even in cases of identity theft, attackers will not be able to cause any harm unless they have access to the secure hardware token.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hardware One-Time Password Token Authentication market to grow at a CAGR of 9.12 percent over the period 2012-2016 and 9.96 percent during the period 2014-2018. The Global Hardware One-Time Password Token Authentication market has also been witnessing the emergence of a unified platform for various authentication solutions.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Hardware OTP Token Authentication market for the period 2014-2018. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from sales of hardware OTP tokens. It also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top four vendors in the market. In addition, the report discusses the major drivers that influence the growth of the Global Hardware OTP Token Authentication market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends that are emerging in the market.
The man who is suspected of earning a quarter million Euros through scamming via Marktplaats has to show up in front of the judge today. The 28 years old Remy D. would be the leader of the group of nearly 40 frauds. This crew of fraudsters behind EBay's Dutch Subsidiary Marktplaats frauds appears in front of judge.
Hans Kortekaas, CEO of ID Control, the company specialized in identity control on the internet was interviewed on Business News Radio. According to him, the suspects placed normal ads just like anyone else. "Subsequently, the buyers tried to buy the products, however, they never received the products. The payment method was most likely through bank wire payments.
Hence, they have never received the products, even though they paid for it."
Kortekaas doesn't believe that Ebay's Marktplaats is eminently a party that is facing major security issues.
"Of course Marktplaats is a company that provides numerous ads. Thus, they will catch more wind in the area of fraud."

With the ID Control USB Token come many portability and security features than any other flash drive, such as strong authentication, secure storage, application virtualization, online passwords and favorites management.
Strong authentication is enabled through the on-board password generator which issues a new one-time password (OTP) every time a user remotely and securely wants to log into the protected remote access of networks, applications and digital resources. At the same time the user’s credentials such as a digital certificate can be verified for strong authentication or used for digital signing purposes. The USB Token is PIN-protected and puts certificates, account and passwords, applications and other data on the move in a secure vault, since data is fully encrypted. Applications can be run virtually from the flash memory of the token which makes it a very small and secure multifunctional portable computing device. Onboard multiple online favorites with related accounts and passwords can be memorized so that with only one master password the user can log in to multiple websites and applications.
Yearly over 20,000,000 unsecured USB sticks are lost in businesses, and with 62% of employees leaving sticks plugged in to unattended computers*, businesses are extremely vulnerable to data and identity theft and fraud. With the ID Control USB Token the related security risks and threats are minimized at affordable costs and users even adopt the token fast due to its user friendly interesting features.
