Actions Regarding TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 Deprecation Warning from AWS


After June 28th 2022 some users of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) started receiving emails with the following warning (partially quoted below):

Update your S3 object access to maintain connectivity

We are reaching out because there are TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1 connections to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) objects hosted in your account. As AWS is updating the TLS configuration for all AWS API endpoints to a minimum of version TLS 1.2, you must take action as soon as possible for these connections to maintain their access to your S3 objects.

The reason for such warning emails is a preparation period for AWS and its users before deprecation of support for the outdated Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol levels 1.0 and 1.1 that is scheduled on June 28th 2023.

What Does It Mean for the Users of MSP360 (CloudBerry Lab) products?

If you received such an email from AWS, make sure to check that all your MSP360 (CloudBerry Lab) products, particularly Drive and Explorer, are updated to the latest public releases (the latest versions utilize TLS 1.2 by default, with planned TLS 1.3 support in the future as well).

As of January 2023, if you use MSP360 Drive version (or higher) or Explorer version (or higher) you are prepared for TLS 1.0 / TLS 1.1 deprecation event by AWS and don't need any further action.
