Authentication Solution (Two-Factor/Nonbiometric). RSA SecurID owns this category. RSA Security's two-factor authentication solution wins first place for the fourth year in a row and by a wide margin. Used in conjunction with RSA Authentication Manager and RSA Authentication Agent software, an RSA SecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card. Network and desktop users must identify themselves with two unique factors—something they know and something they have—before they're granted access. RSA SecurID authenticators can be hardware or software tokens and are compatible with leading remote access servers, wireless Access Points (APs), Web servers, firewalls, and VPNs.
