About Personal Identity Management
Mobile devices are increasingly being used by enterprises and consumers alike. These are becoming the preferred devices for web browsing, e-mailing, social networking, application downloads, and transactions. Therefore, the security of mobile devices is becoming a priority for individual consumers and enterprises alike, leading to an increased adoption of personal identity management solutions. Personal identity management broadly encompasses the protection of mobile devices from malware, data theft, unauthorized access, viruses, spyware, hackers, online identity theft, and accidental loss.
The consequences of malicious identities gaining access to personal information can be disastrous and irreparable. Personal identity management is a security solution that ensures the accessibility of resources to authorized individuals in a multi-technology environment. Personal identity management solutions provide secure identity-based access to mobile applications and information from any location. These solutions help enterprises secure application systems by permitting employee access with a single sign-on (SSO) password.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global personal identity management market to grow at a CAGR of 33.34% during the period 2016-2020.

DoS attack is one of the oldest and the most common technique used to pilfer confidential data. Hackers use DoS to send unsolicited data to a user's web server and network resources. This automatically increases traffic and generates requests for access, blocking the server and accessibility for legitimate users.”
