See why I chose (d)

I think that "at the present" takes it to the "present progressive passive". (estão sendo)

1-Because of the recent number of break-ins to our system, security measures _______ at the present.
A) Have been strengthened  b) will strengthen c) have strengthen  d) are being strengthen

d) are being strengthen (present progressive passive)
Like the present progressive active, the "present progressive passive" occurs most often in sentences that express
(1) actions happening now, (2) extended actions in progress.

Makes sense?
