Why Will Browsers Using TLS 1.0 Protocols No Longer Be Accepted as of June 1?
The security and privacy of your information is vital to us, and we are committed to meeting and exceeding industry best practices for security. TLS stands for “Transport Layer Security” and it is the protocol that allows two applications (like your browser and our Web server) to exchange data securely. TLS 1.0 is particularly vulnerable to outside attackers and is no longer a trusted security protocol.
Starting June 1, 2018, VelocityEHS will prevent old browsers and other devices (e.g. smartphones) using the encryption protocol TLS 1.0 from accessing EHS.com, MSDSonline.com, and other VelocityEHS Web properties.
Going forward, to access our website, every computer or device used to connect to VelocityEHS or MSDSonline properties will need to use an updated browser with encryption protocols TLS 1.1 or above. Most people use an updated browser already and will not be affected by the change. However, if any of your browsers or devices do not support TLS 1.1 or above, we recommend updating immediately in order to maintain access.
