http entity SerializableEntity : is encryption required

I have created a class object by assigning some values to its fields.The class implements serializable interface.
Now I am calling a servlet url using http post method and I am passing the class object to the servlet using http Serializable entity.

The called servlet is receiving the request along with the serialized object.

I have a query here, do I need to encrypt the values from the serialized object to make sure it will be fully secured while sending through the request.
or no need of encryption ?
