Two-Factor Authentication Should Be Enforced For The Enterprise

policy name: enterprise_enforce_two_factor_authentication

severity: HIGH


The two-factor authentication requirement should be enforced at the enterprise level. Regardless of whether users are managed externally by SSO, it is highly recommended to enable this option to reduce the risk of a deliberate or accidental user creation without MFA.
