Cloud-Based Identity Tools, Mobile Device-Based Authentication Among Cyber Market Trends to Watch in 2019

Some of the trends in the cybersecurity market to watch in 2019 include the availability of identity platforms in the cloud and use of mobile devices in authentication, Security Today reported Wednesday.

Organizations aim to supplement application security platforms in the cloud with cloud-based identity and access management systems.

The use of facial recognition, biometrics and other related tools is expected to rise in the coming year as users and institutions look at additional security offered by such systems.

The report noted that customers will look to an effective risk management approach in addition to having assurance that service providers are equipped with cybersecurity strategies.

Calendar year 2019 will also witness a rise in platforms and service offerings designed to model threat actors and offer strategies to mitigate threat tactics, techniques and procedures, the report added.
