The National Security Agency may have to work a little harder to hack into Microsoft’s data centers in the near future. Unnamed sources tell The Washington Post that Microsoft “is moving toward a major new effort to encrypt its Internet traffic after concluding that the National Security Agency may have broken into its global communications systems.” Microsoft’s decision to encrypt its data center traffic comes after Google, Facebook and Yahoo made similar moves after news broke that the NSA has found a way to hack into their data centers. The Post’s sources say that high-level Microsoft executives are meeting this week to decide what encryption measures the company will take and how quickly they’ll be deployed.
