Microsoft Makes AccountGuard Open to Healthcare Providers amidst COVID-19 ITSW

Microsoft has made its AccountGuard service free for healthcare organizations working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. It will remain free for all healthcare organizations until the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. Launched in 2018, the AccountGuard service is an anti-phishing protection system that is available to political campaigns, election officials, and other organizations involved in the electoral process.

The AccountGuard program offers extra protection and attention from Microsoft’s security staff for the user’s email accounts to detect phishing emails from hacker groups.
