TLS Compliance Update Required Soon for Sage 100

As previously communicated in our newsletters and by Sage directly, effective October 1, 2023, Sage will be cutting over to a more secure method of transmitting data between your Sage 100 system and the Sage licensing servers.

In more technical terms, communication via the less secure TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols will no longer be supported.

As such, Sage 100 customers will need to be on a current version that supports TLS 1.2 before October 2023 to prevent disruption of service.

Note: If license keys cannot be updated because your Sage 100 version is not TLS 1.2 compliant, then the software may go into read-only mode.

Please contact us if you have questions about whether your current installation is compliant with TLS 1.2.

Based on that, the content has been improved so it’s easier to read and the search experience is enhanced so you can find the answers you need quickly.
