Source: SECUDE AG
Is it true that companies in Europe are more concerned with security, while those in the US are more concerned with productivity? Maybe. However, there’s a trend in the US toward safer log-on, authentication, and authorization.

Source: Queue Global Information Systems Corp. The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its promise because of the real and perceived threat of identity theft. Financial losses and insurance costs are mounting, as organizations struggle to protect their information perimeters and improve the strength of their authentication systems to ensure that the authorized user is present during the sign-in process.
