2FA
This means a US company has an average of 85.1 applications that can be easily discovered externally and are not protected by 2FA,,,, This is interesting. Most internet applications do not use 2FA, it ps not surprising.

Website is not the problem
Website is not the problem, data behind that are the concern, lots of all web applications access the database without upgraded security measures.
