Microsoft has revealed creation of “a new front line” to support the Ukrainian government in its fight against Russian cyberattacks.
Microsoft president Brad Smith detailed how the vendor is supporting the Ukrainian government during its war with Russia. He was reflecting on the first 100 days of “the world’s first major hybrid war” at the Microsoft Envision event in London.
“[In] the war between Russia and Ukraine, the front line runs through Redmond, Washington — something I wouldn’t have expected a year ago. The people on the front line are our threat intelligence people, the people who work in the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Centre, and our analysts who work with them,” said Smith (pictured above).
Overall, Microsoft has donated more than $100 million of technology support and services free of charge to the Ukrainian government. This includes helping Ukraine move its IT to the cloud.
