Again many new services
With almost 1000 connected services, SURFconext grew strongly last year. In total, users could log in to 240 new services with their own institutional account. MBO institutions also began to use SURFconext more intensively and international services were linked using eduGAIN. For these reasons, the number of Service Providers connected rose by more than 32% in 2018 compared with 2017.
The use of SURFsecureID also increased sharply in 2018. More and more institutions and users are using this second factor service to be able to log in to services in an extra secure manner. In 2018, the number of users increased by more than 100%, and the total number of logins tripled compared to one year previously.
