See TLS 1.2 Update, March 15, 2018

Please Read.   Approaching TLS 1.2 Security Deadline, set for April 2, 2018.
We want to remind you about our ongoing TLS 1.2 project and to ensure you are aware that this initiative requires your immediate attention.  Experian Health is focused on helping our customers improve their security by using the latest security protocols. At Experian Health, we take the protection of our customer’s data very seriously. The disablement of TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 is being undertaken so we can maintain the highest security standards and promote the safety of your data as well as align with industry-wide best practices. This phased approach will prevent older encryption protocols from being used to access Experian Health services within inbound and outbound connections.

TLS1.2 – Project FAQs and Preparation Checklist – 12062017

To avoid disruption, you should ensure that all minimum TLS 1.2 requirements are met by April 2, 2018.  Please take immediate action to ensure that your internal systems are tested with TLS 1.2 today.  If you cannot meet TLS 1.2 protocol requirements, you will not be able to access Experian Health systems after this date.

Clients will be required to perform the necessary web browser, software specific updates, and .NET upgrades before 04/02/2018. Your users should not experience an impact accessing Experian Health in your browser(s) unless you are using a non-supported browser, have disabled the supported encryption protocols in the browser or have not upgraded to minimum .NET 4.6.2 framework required for new NEXT bar, PIC and Smart Agent deployments.

New versions of the NEXT, PIC and Smart Agent have been made available.

Search America – TLS Upgrade Notification
As necessary, please forward this message to the individual responsible for performing IT and security updates within your organization.  Due to a series of vulnerabilities in early Transport Layer Security (TLS) that no longer meet minimum security standards, Experian Health is disabling support of TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1.

The most common way a user will be impacted is if they are still using Internet Explorer (IE) 7 or older, these browsers will not work once TLS 1.2 cutover happens.  For SearchAmerica specific questions, contact us at
