E-commerce security encryption changes: PCI mandate to retire TLS 1.0 and 1.1

As a service to all our customers -past, present, and future, we like to make sure you are ready for some important changes in the industry. TLS 1.0, this is an issue that is likely to affect many e-commerce businesses if they don’t take care of it before it becomes an issue. So what’s the problem? Internet encryption.

This flaw made the previously powerful internet security tool all but useless for e-commerce depending on the application as it was no longer a secure method of encryption. Basic SSL support was discontinued after June 30th of 2016, forcing every reputable card processor and payment gateway to adopt TLS 1.0 or 1.1.
