Yahoo today announced plans to beef up security across all its products. As such, the company is making three promises:
- Encrypt all information that moves between its data centers by the end of Q1 2014.
- Offer users an option to encrypt all data flow to/from Yahoo by the end of Q1 2014.
- Work closely with its international Mail partners to ensure that Yahoo co-branded Mail accounts are https-enabled.
At the same time, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer reiterated the company “has never given access to our data centers to the NSA or to any other government agency. Ever.”
