New 'soft close' accessory added to Brio open bar rail 80 sliding door hardware
A new addition to the Brio barn door-style Open Rail 80 sliding door system is an easy-to-fit 'soft close' accessory, designed to allow for a smoother and softer closure. Hidden from view, the door hardware system comes with a left and right soft close.

Cybersecurity Breaches to Increase Nearly 70% Over the Next 5 years
A new report from Juniper Research found that the cost of data breaches will rise from $3 trillion each year to over $5 trillion in 2024, an average annual growth of 11%. This will primarily be driven by increasing fines for data breaches as regulation tightens, as well as a greater proportion of business lost as enterprises become more dependent on the digital realm.
The new research, The Future of Cybercrime & Security: Threat Analysis, Impact Assessment & Mitigation Strategies 2019-2024 noted that while the cost per breach will steadily rise in the future, the levels of data disclosed will make headlines but not impact breach costs directly, as most fines and lost business are not directly related to breach sizes.
