The multi-factor authentication market is experiencing new dynamics. For the last 15 years, strong authentication was not a top of mind concern for organizations and was mainly based on hardware tokens generating one-time passwords (OTPs), a temporary 6 or 8 digit password. The user was required to first generate an OTP on his token and then copy/paste it into his online portal. It has been pretty much about two-factor authentication: "something you know" and "something you have." Later on, in 2013, Apple released its first integrated mobile biometry solution: TouchID, adding a new factor to the authentication process related to "something you are."
