Dear InterFAX User,

ALERT – InterFAX is Deprecating Support for TLS 1.1 on July 1, 2020
To sustain market-driven security protocols, InterFAX will stop supporting TLS 1.1 on July 1, 2020. InterFAX will support TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3.
Who needs to take action?
Please make sure the web developer, network infrastructure, or IT team in your company are notified, to implement the necessary actions to ensure uninterrupted fax service to all company users.
As all major web browser providers including Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Mozilla, have decided to phase out TLS 1.1, InterFAX will follow industry best-practices and stop supporting TLS 1.1 on July 1, 2020. This is true for both our user portals and APIs.
Unless your browser, email system, or API supports TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3 your fax service will stop completely effective July 1, 2020.
- Review your system and check if you are choosing a specific security protocol when sending web requests to InterFAX. If so, we suggest you change to TLS 1.2 or 1.3.
- Test your application (see steps below).
Testing your Application:
We have set test servers to work without TLS 1.1. We suggest you change the API endpoint for testing purposes only, as follows:
REST API Users
SOAP API Users
Web Portal Users
As always, please send any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to assist.
