According to Gartner, "The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly hastened the move toward remote work and thus the need to implement secure remote access for large workforce populations. Security and risk management leaders should invest in MFA and access management for all kinds of remote access, and plan for rapid scaling."
"Gartner states that through 2021, enterprises that rapidly expand remote access without implementing MFA will experience five times as many ATO incidents as those that use MFA."

- "Organizations should follow the “response, recovery, renewal” action plan to address MFA and AM requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently."

- "Organizations should implement or expand use of MFA across all remote access use cases."
