Can turning on multifactor authentication boost my security hygiene?
Can turning on multifactor authentication (MFA) boost my security hygiene?
No. Hygiene is about remediating known vulnerabilities, applying all important patches quickly, and hardening all systems settings by ensuring they match the latest security benchmarks. That said, multifactor authentication is a great thing to do, as it makes your company much more secure – it just doesn’t fall under the heading “hygiene.”
