Salesforce Disabling TLS 1.0 Encryption

Salesforce Disabling TLS 1.0 Encryption

Guest Post by Ben Murad

 

Hello everyone, I’m writing today to let you know about some changes to your use of Salesforce.com on your laptop or desktop computer!

Coming out today, Salesforce is announcing that some of their security protocols are changing. While this is a regular occurrence, Salesforce updating security processes, this one in particular may have some impact on you or your users.

What this really means is that older versions of some web browsers, like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, and some versions of mobile operating systems, like Android and iPhone, are going to need to be updated to newer versions.

More importantly, if you or your organization ties any other system or information into Salesforce automatically (via APIs), then you will need to make sure your API connection is updated for the new protocols.

These changes will begin to happen to select development servers this weekend, to all Sandbox development instances in March of 2016, and all Production environments in April of 2016. Please see the below article by Salesforce providing more technical details and how to best manage these changes for you and your organization.
