New report suggest that India has the highest percentage increase of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adoption and highest overall percentage of MFA usage among all countries 

India gained 19 percentage points to 66 per cent this year in the survey followed by Singapore with a 17-percentage-point increase in adoption to 64 per cent, and UAE with a 10-percentage-point increase, to 65 per cent. 

The survey focused on direct impacts that the pandemic and remote work had on deployment plans for new access security technologies. Responses revealed a six-percentage-point global increase in plans to deploy stand-alone MFA, up from 31 per cent in 2021. 

The pandemic also impacted plans to deploy cloud-based access management, selected by 45 per cent of respondents worldwide compared to 41 per cent in 2021. These two increases illustrate respondents’ growing awareness that threats come from all angles, and that proper authentication and management of access and privileges is necessary for an adequate security foundation. 

Last year, Zero Trust Network Access/Software-Defined Perimeter (ZTNA)/(SDP) was the top choice, selected by 44 per cent of respondents globally. In 2022, ZTNA was the second choice at 42 per cent.

In a statement, Ashish Saraf, Vice President and Country Director, India at Thales said, “The strong growth in adoption of Multi Factor Authentication in India points towards rising awareness and a commitment towards ensuring high levels of security in enterprise environments.”
