“There was a jump in those enterprises deploying MFA—from about half in last year’s survey to 61% in this year’s survey—mainly because so many more people were working remotely. Still, most enterprises only have limited MFA usage. But it has become their first priority going forward, even more so than VPNs.” Garrett Bekker – Principal Analyst, Information Security at 451 Research, now part of S&P Global
