Basic Authentication (OAuth) and
On October 1, 2022 Microsoft will disable Basic Authentication for email services and will require the use of Modern Authentication for Microsoft Exchange Server and Office 365. Microsoft did announce a One-Time Re-Enablement in an effort to give users a little more time to make this change. Note: Google ended support of Basic Authentication on May 30, 2022.
Sage 100 will not be affected by this, however security vulnerabilities remain with the continued use of Basic Email Authentication.
What disabling Basic Authentication means for you? If you do use in-product email services, you will need to upgrade to 2021.4 or 2022.1 if you would like to add a recommended layer of protection with Modern Authentication.
In September of 2023, Sage servers will stop accepting communications from Sage 100 product versions using Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1. TLS is a security protocol that creates encryption paths over computer networks to help ensure that online communications and information cannot be intercepted. Regulatory standards have increasingly required the adoption of TLS 1.2 and subsequent deprecation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 due to known security risks.
What disabling TLS 1.0/1.1 means for you? You will need to move to a supported version of Sage if you are not on 2019 Product Update 4 or newer by September of 2023. Sage will be monitoring this and you may go into Read Only if you are not on a version of Sage that supports TLS 1.2.
