Get yourself ready for the outcome of TLS 1.2 Update

  • DocAve 6 SP10.1 or below 
  • Office Connect 1.60 or below (customers can upgrade to at least one.70 directly and won’t require a configuration change) 
  • Governance Automation 1.9 or below 
  • File Share Navigator Online (FSNO will update to .Net4.6 in March release)
  • Avepoint Conferences
  • Avepoint Records (On-Premises Version)

Browsers with TLS versions below 1.2 might be blocked later on to make sure communication security. We suggest that you improve your browser to some greater version to make sure that your business is not hindered by the update.
