The Ozon marketplace announced that it has restored access to the main Microsoft programs. Yesterday, May 26, reportedthat the corporation deprived Ozon employees of access to its products.
“Access to key programs has already been restored, the data is in order, the mail service is available. There is no significant impact of the incident on the work of our office, ”the company said in a statement, which cites "RIA News".
On May 26, a source close to Ozon told Kommersant that on May 25, Microsoft deprived employees of the marketplace of access to its services - Outlook, Teams, Word, Excel. The source suggested that the shutdown is due to the illegal purchase of a license. Ozon's official comment stated that the company acquired software licenses from Microsoft from an official distributor.
Microsoft stopped sales of new products in Russia in 2022 due to the start of a special military operation in Ukraine. At the same time, Russian distributors of Microsoft solutions continue to sell license renewals for software already implemented in Russia.
