[horde] State of security with Horde and Imp

hello maillist,

I have a simple question regarding security with Horde and Imp.   
Currently, Horde is configured to use Imp as its auth backend.  Imp's  
backends.php is configured to use my Gmail account with SSL and the  
recommended port from Google.

That being said, I had an incident last week that required me to have  
a look at which devices were accessing my account, and I noticed  
Google is classifying Horde (and imp I assume) as a "device that does  
not support modern security standards".  Rather insulting but is it  

How behind is horde/imp in terms of security when compared to lets say  
other commercial solutions?  Other question is:  will horde eventually  
support double authentication, or is there anything else to implement  
to reinforce the simple SSL protocol used by Imp to connect to Gmail?

Best regards
