AFAIK there's no built-in encryption for reporting (although that
would be nice).

I use stunnel on my clients and servers to encapsulate reporting
traffic in an SSL/TLS tunnel. I do that on Linux, but stunnel also
seems to be available for Windows:

P.S.: I use port 1983 for my SSL tunnels. Sounded more fitting than
e.g. 1985. ;-)
