Microsoft has announced a new cybersecurity program to support hospitals serving more than 60 million people in rural areas of the United States.

In 2023, the healthcare sector was particularly hard hit by ransomware attacks, with an increase of almost 130%.

Microsoft's program will offer free and low-cost technology services, free Windows 10 security updates for a year, and cybersecurity assessments and training.

Microsoft aims to strengthen the security of rural hospitals to maintain the viability of healthcare in these regions.
