Four-factor authentication models are primarily used in research and defense.

Based on application, the market is segmented into banking and finance, healthcare, travel and immigration, consumer electronics, government, commercial security, defense, transportation, and others. Governments and defense forces of different countries are investing a significant amount in MFA projects because of security needs, enterprise data security, inter border security requirements, and legislative compliances.
