March 2017: Microsoft’s sunset date for desktop operating systems that do not support TLS 1.2 is Tuesday, April 11, 2017. So that we can maintain the highest standards for our data security and industry best practices, we are asking customers to ensure they have upgraded as necessary to a compatible, supported operating system and browser. These include Windows 7 or newer with Internet Explorer 11 or Edge browser. Also, Google Chrome 38 and higher, as well as mobile Safari versions 5 or higher.
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical supports and security updates. Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. This means you should take action. After January 12, 2016, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for older versions of Internet Explorer. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware, helping to keep users and their data safer. Regular security updates help protect computers from malicious attacks, so upgrading and staying current is important.
After July 14, 2015, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003, you need to take steps now to plan and execute a migration strategy to protect your infrastructure.
