Deprecation: TLS 1.0

Box Employee

In order to maintain the highest security standards, promote the safety of our customers' data, and align with industry-wide best practices, Box will disable the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol across all Box services on June 15, 2018

 

After Box disables TLS 1.0, users leveraging browsers, 3rd party applications or Box applications that do not support TLS 1.1 or 1.2 will not be able to access Box.

 

Users will be required to upgrade their browser to a version that supports TLS 1.1 or higher. You can check if your browser supports TLS 1.1 or higher here.

 

Developers of  3rd party applications will be required to upgrade their applications to support TLS 1.1 or higher and users accessing 3rd party applications that do not support TLS 1.1 or higher will be required to upgrade their applications as well.

 

Box Tools, Box for Office, Box Sync and Box Drive will support TLS 1.1+ in their next release. Box will send a follow-up communication when the new Box Tools, Box for Office, Box Sync and Box Drive updates with TLS 1.1+ compatibility have been released. Users will be required to upgrade to these versions to continue to access Box prior to June 15, 2018. 

 

Note: On June 15, 2018 these desktop applications will enforce the previously announced deprecation of the .NET 4.0 framework which can be found here.  All Windows machines must be on .NET 4.5.2 or higher.
