Keeping customer data secure and protected is one of BOARD main priorities. We continuously monitor BOARD Cloud environments and work for maintaining and improving protection against cyber threats.
Recently the Security Standard Council PCI DSS, has declared that the encryption protocol TLS version 1.0 a too weak encryption. The use of TLS 1.0 is considered a critical vulnerability and should be upgraded to TSL 1.1 or later which are secure.
For this reason, BOARD Cloud will no longer support the use of TSL 1.0 as of August 31st. Only TSL 1.1 or 1.2 will be permitted.
What it is
TSL is used to encrypt all communication between the BOARD Cloud environment and your clients or browsers.
How you may be impacted
In case you are using an old browser or an old operating system which don't support TSL 1.1 then you will not be able to connect to your BOARD Cloud environments after 31st of August.
All modern browsers and operating systems such as Windows 10 or Windows 8, MacOS 10.10 or later, fully support TSL1.1 so you should not be impacted if you are using a reasonably recent system.
Call to action
Forward this email to your company's IT Department to ensure that if necessary they apply the appropriate updates and changes to comply to TSL1.1 or later.
