Sage 200 scheduled changes in 2022
In Q3 2022, there will be several technology retirements that will affect your use of Sage 200.
As part of ongoing efforts to modernize platforms, and to improve security and reliability, TLS 1.0 and 1.1 is being depreciated. The Sage 200 application uses the TLS protocol as does a variety of connected services including Sage CRM.
How will this affect Business?
From 30th September 2022, older Sage 200 versions will be unable to communicate with Sage licence server and become unlicensed after 30 days, at which point the software will cease to function.
What action do I need to take?
Steps, including patching and upgrades, will need to be completed by key dates to ensure the software continues to work and services are not disrupted.
Sage 200 Versions 2017.02 and above can request to receive software patches to allow Sage 200 to continue running past the effected date.
If you are currently utilising a Sage 200 version prior to 2017.02, you will need to upgrade to the latest version to ensure you remain within the product lifecycle and continue to receive technology and legislative updates.
If you’re using Sage 200 2022 R1, you’re up to date and no further action is required.
