'We still don't encrypt server-to-server data' admits Microsoft to EU Committee

A senior Microsoft executive has told a European parliamentary committee that the company does not encrypt its server-to-server data communications.

Dorothee Belz, EMEA VP for Legal and Corporate Affairs made the remark when answering a question from Claude Moraes, MEP during a meeting at the European Parliament on Monday.

"Generally, what I can say today is server-to-server transportation is generally not encrypted," she said. "This is why we are currently reviewing our security system."

IMHO they can't change this policy and make these changes quick enough. Google reacted much faster to this same issue.
