And the government admits... This is all very interesting.

Microsoft has accused Google of making "misleading security claims" to the US government, as the two companies continue to spar over the use of their respective online application suites among government agencies.

With a recent lawsuit, various public statements, and posts to its website, Google has said that its Google Apps for Government suite is certified under the requirements of FISMA (the Federal Information Security Management Act). But as Microsoft pointed out with a blog post entitled "Google’s misleading security claims to the government raise serious questions", recently unsealed court documents show that the suite has not actually received FISMA certification.
