The introduction of out-of-band authentication or OOB is a key trend that will impel growth in multi-factor authentication market during the predicted period. OOB is a fairly new process that uses two separate networks to identify users. This technology can be classified as a type of two-factor authentication that works well when a fraudulent user tries to gain access to a specific customer’s account. This is a far cheaper method to use compared to biometric technologies. Hardware OOB tokens and mobile phone-based OOB tokens like SMS and back-up calls are some of the methods used by end users in the financial sector.

The global multi-factor authentication market analyst said OOB authentication uses two separate networks that work simultaneously to identify a user. This authentication technology is a type of two-factor authentication and works well even if a fraudulent user gains all security credentials to a user’s account. The transaction is not complete without access to the second authentication network. The OOB authentication method is cheaper to deploy compared to keys and more complex biometric technologies. Hardware OOB authentication tokens and mobile phone-based OOB authentication tokens such as SMS and back-up calls are the OOB authentication methods available.
