Limited-Time Free Offers to Secure the Enterprise Amid COVID-19

The novel coronavirus has had an impact on the global economy unlike any health-related issue in modern times. Companies have been told to close offices, while employees have been instructed to shelter in place and avoid travel. The result is an unprecedented change in IT practices at a lightning pace and on a global scale.

To help companies and individuals forced to shift IT operations practically overnight, a number of vendors have made their products and services available free for a limited time or for the duration of the pandemic. The offerings run the gamut from courses to educate employees and professionals to enterprise tools for securing a network.

For this article, we've chosen to focus on offerings that could be of immediate help to cybersecurity professionals now protecting their organizations while working from home. That means you'll see more remote network monitoring and less password management. And we didn't focus on offerings like remote conferencing, even though those are undoubtably useful in these situations. Look for them in a follow-up article soon.

This list is a work in progress: Given the very fluid environment we're all working in, as more companies offer free services for enterprise security, we will add them to this list. If you are taking advantage of any of these offers — and if they are helping with the security of your organization in this extraordinary time — let us know in the Comments section, below.
