The window repair industry has been hit by a wave of ransomware attacks that have affected thousands of businesses.
But there’s one company that is making money from repairing windows on a regular basis.
In January, Dell and IBM announced a partnership that would allow them to repair up to 1,000 windows a day.
And in May, the companies announced that they would be offering the service to businesses.
The two companies have agreed to let anyone repair up and down the West Coast.
The agreement comes as ransomware attacks across the globe are increasing and the number of infected machines and devices continues to rise.
In an article published in the Financial Times on Tuesday, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said the companies have been using Windows Defender to detect Windows machines and Windows 10 devices being targeted.
The company said it will now also offer its own security software, called Windows Defender Enterprise, which it said would be available on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
The company’s Chief Security Officer, Chris Kroll, said in the article that the Windows Defender software will be offered for “all PCs running Windows 10 or Windows Server” to enable businesses to better protect their infrastructure.
“We have been able to detect many of the types of ransomware that we have been experiencing on the West coast and have seen a very significant drop in the number,” Kroll said.
“We’ve seen a significant reduction in ransomware infections on our West Coast service areas, so it’s a very positive sign for our business.”
The company said that Windows Defender is already available on a handful of Dell and HP systems.
The news comes after several recent ransomware attacks on businesses.
The FBI said in March that more than 1.2 million Windows PCs had been infected, and the Department of Homeland Security said last week that more people had been hacked than at any point in 2017.
A total of 1.6 million devices have been reported infected by ransomware, according to the FBI.
