Microsoft Opens Transparency Center To Allow Governments Access To Source Code

explained that will open up in the near and upcoming future:

“I’m pleased to announce that today we opened the first Microsoft Transparency Center, on our Redmond, Wash. campus. Our Transparency Centers provide participating governments with the ability to review source code for our key products, assure themselves of their software integrity, and confirm there are no ‘back doors.”
One such Transparency Center is set to open in Brussels, while other locations are soon to be announced by the software titan. In the shadow of the PRISM scandal, a few governments across the world have accused Microsoft for bundling such codes in its products that is capable of tracking user activity and stealing state secrets. These new transparency centers are a way for the company to do so damage control. What remains to be seen is whether this initiative restores the lost trust of these governments across the globe, and whether they stop moving away from Microsoft software.]]>
