The company says this particular operation was made possible after intensive testing by other international mail services such as Deutsche Telekom, Yandex and Mail.Ru, which conducted the tests to see if the emails were actually encrypted.

Την ίδια στιγμή, η υπηρεσία απέκτησε PFS ( Forward Secrecy), το οποίο προσθέτει ένα νέο επίπεδο προστασίας κατά την και λήψη μηνυμάτων ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου από ένα Microsoft.

OneDrive cloud service also has PFS encryption as of today, as revealed by Microsoft, which means that everyone who stores files in the cloud will have increased protection when entering the service, not only through the web interface but also through the mobile applications.
