Sage Licence Service

TLS is a security protocol required for a variety of services, including the Sage Licence Service, which enables products to communicate securely. It’s important to note that TLS is not a protocol provided by Sage.

Sage 50cloud version 26.2 and earlier use a version of the Sage Licence Service which operates using the TLS 1.0 protocol. As this security protocol is now retired, with no future security updates scheduled, it presents a risk to customers who continue to use it. To remove this risk, we have made the decision to retire the use of this variant. This means customers using version 26.2 or earlier need to upgrade by Spring 2022, we’ll confirm the exact date shortly and we reserve the right to bring the date forward if necessary.
