Microsoft responds to Google security concerns

In response to a report in the Financial Times that Google has ditched Windows operating systems for employees, one of the company’s own has defended Microsoft’s reputation on an official blog.

The FT report claims Google has stopped using the OS due to security concerns, and employees can now only choose between Mac OS X and Linux systems.

“We thought this was a good opportunity to set the record straight,” Windows communications manager Brandon LeBlanc wrote on the Windows blog.

When it comes to security, even hackers admit we’re doing a better job making our products more secure than anyone else. And it’s not just the hackers; third party influentials and industry leaders like Cisco tell us regularly that our focus and investment continues to surpass others.

LeBlanc said the original Financial Times article showed one side of the story, and said that even Yale University had stopped its move to Gmail citing security concerns.
