Nearly two-thirds (64 per cent) of business decision makers are anticipating Covid-themed phishing attacks targeting their company to increase in 2021, according to new research from Centrify, a leading provider of identity-centric privileged access management solutions.
The research was conducted by independent polling agency Censuswide and obtained via a survey of 200 business decision makers in large- and medium-sized enterprises in the UK.
The MTL 500is ideal for medium to large sized business customers - due to its compatibility with various locking products, its advanced master key capabilities and its ability to provide a variety of keying options.
Installers across the UK can further enhance their security installation capability, after Legrand unveiled its first ever smart video doorbell to join a suite of connected products from its User Interface business unit.

Part of Legrand's popular Netatmo smart home devices range, the new doorbell offers long-term savings with no subscription or update costs, providing installers the option to integrate into their ever security-conscious customers' homes.
