When making necessary decisions that can help protect data, we recommend that you understand the following information about Microsoft Dynamics CRM network communication and about the technology options that are available to you that provide more secure data transmissions.

By default, Microsoft Dynamics CRM client-to-server communications are not encrypted. Authentication information from Microsoft Dynamics CRM clients is transmitted in clear text and therefore possibly vulnerable to malicious intent.
