Yahoo follows through ..

by Ziuby

Recent increase in cyber attacks and instances for e-mail and phone data hacking have only highlighted the need of more security measures. Businesses have now moved on and accepted the digital revolution. Lot of business activities are done across different geographical locations and time-zones, such is the requirement. Internet has truly made a business a global business in every true sense. Yet there are security threats that need to  assessed and dealt with.


In such times the digital world will always look up-to the IT giants. Yahoo is one such company to step up-to the challenge. Yahoo promised last year to turn on HTTPS by default for all Yahoo! Mail exchanges.Now when you send or receive mails on Yahoo! Mail, your exchanges will automatically be encrypted by default and protected. It is mention that anytime user use Yahoo’s Mail services, whether it is on the web, mobile web, mobile apps or even via IMAP, POP or SMTP, it will remain completely encrypted. This encryption will not just remain limited to your mails but also extend itself to your attachments, contacts, calendar and the Messenger in the Mail.

This is a very good example of the leaders taking up the challenge at helping to put out an action plan with execution. Let us hope that others will follow and lend a helping hand in increasing the security over the Internet.
