Sage has announced that there are two important technical updates approaching that may impact Sage 100 customers that are not on a recent product release.

Microsoft Will Disable Basic Authentication

Effective October 1, 2022, Microsoft will disable basic authentication and subsequently require the use of modern authentication (OAuth) for connection to servers, services, and API endpoints, such as Exchange online & Office 365 email tenants.

This means that in-product email services will stop working (i.e., sending email through Paperless Office) for Sage 100 customers that are on versions prior to 2020.1.

As such, Sage recommends that all customers upgrade to the latest version of Sage 100 by October 1, 2022.

Transport Layer Security 1.0 and 1.1 Deprecation

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a third-party component that is widely adopted and designed to facilitate privacy and data security when communicating over the internet. TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 were formally deprecated in June 2018, making way for the recommended use of TLS 1.2. 

As such, effective September 2023, Sage 100 will no longer support TLS 1.0 and 1.1. It will be necessary for customers to upgrade to Sage 100 version 2020.1 or higher by that time.
