The cloud segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Cloud-based services are provided directly through the cloud-deployed network connection. The cloud deployment mode is the fastest-growing segment in the SAML authentication market. Organizations can avoid certain costs, such as maintenance of infrastructure and technical staff, by using the cloud-based authentication solutions. The cloud-based platforms are beneficial for organizations that have strict budgets for security investments. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) deploy their SAML authentication solutions on cloud, as it enables them to focus on their core competencies, rather than to invest their capital on security infrastructures. Low cost of installation, upgrade, and maintenance helps fuel the growth of cloud-based SAML authentication solutions.
The key growth drivers of the SAML authentication market are organizations’ need to effectively manage large volumes of identities; organizations’ need to provide enhanced, consistent, and unified identity security to customers and employees and enhance the operational efficiency; and effective management of stringent regulatory compliances. Additionally, organizations’ need for remote access due to Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends, and proliferation of cloud-based SAML authentication solution and services among global organizations are expected to provide a huge growth opportunity for the SAML authentication market over the next 5 years. The biggest challenge for the SAML authentication market is single point of failure, which can affect the entire authentication process. With the increase in identity thefts and account takeovers, the demand for authentication solutions is increasing. SAML authentication solutions are convenient for enterprise users and consumers to authenticate themselves. Additionally, the increasing global competition has boosted the need to provide an enhanced customer experience. It would create market opportunities for SAML authentication solution and service vendors.
The SAML authentication protocol used in the Single sign-on (SSO) software solution passes the SAML assertion, authentication and authorization information from identity providers to service providers. The types of SAML assertions passed from identity providers to service providers include authentication, attribute, and authorization decision. Authentication assertion makes use of Kerberos, 2 Factor, and other authentication methods to prove the identity of the user. The attribution assertion includes detailed user information, which is used by authorization decision functionality to authenticate and authorize the user using the service. SAML protocol is available as direct integration with SSO, directory integration, and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solutions. SAML authentication solutions are available as on-premises and cloud-based solutions. SAML authentication solutions enable companies to identify and authenticate legitimate customers and protect customers’ data from fraudulent activities. These solutions are gaining popularity because organizations, these days, are generating large volumes of information and have realized the need to provide access to only legitimate users for preventing frauds while delivering better user experience.
