Microsoft accuses Google of lying about Apps for Gov't

Nancy Gohring, IDG News Service | April 11, 2011
In a scathing blog post, one of Microsoft's top lawyers alleged that Google has been falsely claiming that its Google Apps for Government service has an important certification.

As Google and Microsoft compete for potentially lucrative government deals, both have had successes and challenges. Google has won deals to supply hosted services to the GSA as well as agencies in Washington and Orlando.

Google won a high-profile contract with the city of Los Angeles but faced deployment delays, in part due to security concerns from the police department.

Microsoft has signed some large government deals as well, including with the USDA, New York City, agencies in California and the state of Minnesota. But it faced criticism in December after its commercial hosted service accidentally let businesses access and download data belonging to other customers.
