Microsoft expands SSL security

Following its full-session HTTPS encryption for Hotmail last November, Microsoft has now enabled SSL security for its other Windows Live services.

Over 2 million people have already opted-in to Hotmail’s SSL security, although figures could be much higher if users didn’t have to manually enable SSL encryption.

This week, Microsoft gave Outlook and Windows Live Mail desktop users the same level of protection as its online users. And the best bit is that these desktop programmes will automatically enable SSL encryption, without the need for users to opt-in.

Good on Microsoft. That’s what we like to hear – SSL security for everyone.
