Sage.com no longer supports TLS 1.0 encryption protocol

EFFECTIVE MARCH 25, 2019, HTTPS://WWW.SAGE.COM ONLY SUPPORTS TLS 1.1 AND 1.2 ENCRYPTION PROTOCOL. THIS ACTION PREVENTS TLS 1.0 FROM BEING USED TO ACCESS THE SAGE.COM WEBSITE. IF YOUR BROWSER DOES NOT HAVE TLS 1.1 OR HIGHER ENABLED, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS OUR WWW.SAGE.COM WEBSITE AFTER MARCH 25, 2019.


IF YOU ARE REDIRECTED TO THIS PAGE AUTOMATICALLY, YOUR WEB BROWSER OR APPLICATION IS NO LONGER COMPATIBLE TO VIEW OR USE WWW.SAGE.COM. PLEASE REVIEW ACTIONS BELOW TO UPGRADE YOUR BROWSER.

 

Why is this happening? 


Sensitive data requires strict protection when transmitted across networks. Administrators use standard security protocols that reduce risk of data being intercepted and used maliciously. Transfer Layer Security (TLS), a standard specified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF, provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications securely exchanged over a network. TLS is the most widely deployed security protocol used today. It is used by a variety of everyday applications (desktop and mobile), including email, secure web browsing, instant messaging and voice-over-IP (VOIP). 

The IETF found vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0, one of the most widely used protocols, and updated it to TLS 1.1 and then TLS 1.2 to resolve many security issues. In order to mitigate these vulnerabilities and conform to our own recommendations, Sage will disable use of TLS 1.0 app/browser connections to our Sage.com website. 


What actions do you need to take? 


To continue accessing Sage.com, you must ensure your application browser(s) have TLS 1.1 and preferably TLS 1.2 enabled. Most modern, up-to-date browsers are compatible with TLS 1.2. If your browser or integration does not have TLS 1.1 or higher enabled after March 25, 2019, you will NOT be able to access our website. 

To see if your browser supports TLS 1.1 or 1.2, go to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html


To enable 1.2 in your browser, go to https://knowledge.geotrust.com/support/knowledge-base/index?page=content&id=INFO3299.
