Look for the helpers

It’s often said that in times of crisis we need to look for the helpers. Now, we certainly couldn’t be prouder of our National Health Service and key workers at this time – without a doubt, these are the real heroes. But because we’re in the business of working with cybersecurity companies, we must note that we’ve also been impressed with how quickly the cybersecurity community has rallied. By offering free services or tools to help workforces as they mobilise, the companies we work with have been doing great things to keep everyone cybersafe at this time.

It’s no secret that cybercriminals have been taking advantage of this unpredictable time, so here are just a few free offers from our clients to check out:

Free 60-day access to BlockAPT’s web security solution

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions is now being offered to critical infrastructure organisations free of charge for six months

KnowBe4 has a page dedicated to free resources to help with security awareness training, with videos, tutorials and even a free online course

The security team at Securonix is providing a free resource page on the latest COVID-19 security threats and how to remediate them

DomainTools has provided a regularly updated list of all coronavirus related domains and a risk assessment of them

OneLogin is offering its Trusted Experience Platform for free to educators who are moving to a virtual learning environment in light of health concerns for three months.

Gurucul is offering a free 30-day cloud service for Securing Data with a Remote Workforce, effective immediately with Gurucul SaaS.

And if all else fails, at least you can keep the kids entertained with this free colouring book from OneLogIn: https://www.onelogin.com/blog/wfh-coloring-book

It’s never been truer that we’re all in this together. It’s encouraging to see businesses pulling together for the greater good and rallying to help not just customers, but every business who may need a little extra support right now. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
