Google Wave, the company's new real-time collaboration platform currently in private beta, is more secure than traditional email, claims the company. According to Greg D'alesandre, Google Wave product manager, that's because Google has focused on addressing privacy and security issues as the product was built from the ground up instead of waiting to deal with them later. Speaking to media in Sydney today, he detailed several of Wave's security features which are meant to stop criminals from exploiting the new technology and harming Wave users.

1>Built In Features to Prevent Spoofing
2>HTTPS Enabled by Default
3>Whitelisting Kills the Noise

Kudos to Google for being a benevolent dictator in this sense, if Wave does fail to be another Orkut, and seizes the hearts and minds of many.
