Submission + - Microsoft says Google lies about Apps for G (networkworld.com)

alphadogg writes: In a scathing blog post, http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_on_the_issues/archive/2011/04/11/google-s-misleading-security-claims-to-the-government-raise-serious-questions.aspx one of Microsoft's top lawyers alleged that Google has been falsely claiming that its Google Apps for Government service has an important certification. The two companies have been pitched in a fierce battle for government customers and have been trading barbs and in some cases lawsuits over the past year. On Monday, Microsoft said that court documents related to a case Google filed charging the government with unfairly favoring Microsoft were unsealed. Those documents include a brief from the Department of Justice noting that "notwithstanding Google's representations to the public at large, its counsel, the GAO and this Court, it appears that Google's Google Apps for Government does not have FISMA certification."
