OpEd: One of the big surprises in Russia's war against Ukraine has been how well Ukraine has fended off Russian cyberattacks. Ad hoc groups of white-hat hackers have helped, as have a number of nations and the US government.

More from the article...

...Less well known is that tech companies, including Microsoft, are part of the effort. That aid ranges from giving advice to identifying attacks, offering fixes for them, and providing Ukraine with free tech and security services.

Microsoft isn't just trying to help defend a country under siege from an aggressive, more-powerful neighbor. Russian cyberattacks against Ukraine can also get loose in the wild and do damage to enterprises and organizations that rely on Microsoft technology. (Russia could also deliberately target private companies with those attacks.)

By helping Ukraine, Microsoft also helps its customers -- and it happens to be good PR, as well.

So just what kind of help does Microsoft give, and how might it help you or your organization?

Here's what we know....

I feel like this site might have one or two Russian bots operating.

With our smartest people we can defeat any enemy. Microsoft is the first I've heard about to become allies, when our corporate community joins together Russia will not be able to function, they have the skills necessary to shut down Russia's infrastructure. Putin miscalculated, Americans are undefeatable when our technological energies are employed and make no mixtake, as stupid Putin did.... this a proxy war and America will unite to win it.
