Looks like people now pay for Trello, meaning 'ripper' fourth quarter at Atlassian

Business Class a bit too costly but Free a little limited? Here comes Standard

Atlassian has fiddled with its Trello pricing tiers and added a new one for customers who found the leap from Free to Business Class a jump too far.

Disappointingly called "Standard", the new tier is aimed at small teams and costs $5 per user per month (if you pay for a year up front) or $6 per user per month on a monthly basis.

"Standard" slots nicely between the freebie offering and "Business Class." The latter will henceforth be known as "Premium." The price, at $10 per user per month for a 12-month commitment, remains unchanged.

Users signing up for the new tier will receive unlimited boards in Trello as well as unlimited storage (although there is a 250MB file limit). 1,000 Butler automation command runs per month per Workspace are also permitted along with advanced checklists and custom fields.

That 1,000 limit has been removed in Premium, which is where all Atlassian's shiny new views (introduced earlier this year) can be found.

Kanban fans without such deep pockets can still opt for the Free tier, which now features unlimited Power-Ups as well as custom background and stickers. Limits remain, however – there are only 10 boards per workspace and files in the "unlimited storage" are limited to 10MB.

The naming of the tiers matches those of Atlassian's venerable issue tracker, Jira, which also lays claim to Free, Standard, and Premium (although priced from $0, $7 and $14 per user per month respectively).

The addition of the paid-for tier comes in wake of Atlassian's latest set of quarterly results. Co-founder and co-CEO Mike Cannon-Brookes described Q4 as "a ripper of a quarter" as the company added another 23,311 customers and $559.5m in revenues (up 30 per cent from the same period last year). Operating losses widened to $7.5m from $3.3m in Q4 FY2020.

Of those new customers, 6,520 were single-user Trello accounts. ®

    Considering the slack security of such kit, it's a perfect storm

    Increasing numbers of "non-business" Internet of Things devices are showing up inside corporate networks, Palo Alto Networks has warned, saying that smart lightbulbs and internet-connected pet feeders may not feature in organisations' threat models.

    According to Greg Day, VP and CSO EMEA of the US-based enterprise networking firm: "When you consider that the security controls in consumer IoT devices are minimal, so as not to increase the price, the lack of visibility coupled with increased remote working could lead to serious cybersecurity incidents."

    The company surveyed 1,900 IT decision-makers across 18 countries including the UK, US, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia, finding that just over three quarters (78 per cent) of them reported an increase in non-business IoT devices connected to their org's networks.

    Never mind the performance, man, think of the planet

    MBB Forum 2021 The "G" in 5G stands for Green, if the hours of keynotes at the Mobile Broadband Forum in Dubai are to be believed.

    Run by Huawei, the forum was a mixture of in-person event and talking heads over occasionally grainy video and kicked off with an admission by Ken Hu, rotating chairman of the Shenzhen-based electronics giant, that the adoption of 5G – with its promise of faster speeds, higher bandwidth and lower latency – was still quite low for some applications.

    Despite the dream five years ago, that the tech would link up everything, "we have not connected all things," Hu said.

    Darktrace: Why you need defence that operates at machine speed

    Sponsored There used to be two certainties in life - death and taxes - but thanks to online crooks around the world, there's a third: ransomware. This attack mechanism continues to gain traction because of its phenomenal success. Despite admonishments from governments, victims continue to pay up using low-friction cryptocurrency channels, emboldening criminal groups even further.

    Darktrace, the AI-powered security company that went public this spring, aims to stop the spread of ransomware by preventing its customers from becoming victims at all. To do that, they need a defence mechanism that operates at machine speed, explains its director of threat hunting Max Heinemeyer.

    According to Darktrace's 2021 Ransomware Threat Report [PDF], ransomware attacks are on the rise. It warns that businesses will experience these attacks every 11 seconds in 2021, up from 40 seconds in 2016.
