As you may be aware, Microsoft recently discontinued support for their highly popular Windows XP operating system. Older versions of Apple and Android operating systems and browsers are also no longer being supported by their vendors. Some of these browsers and platforms are no longer supporting sufficiently strong encryption to protect private information and may cease to function or may pose significant security risks to the College and the user. The ITS Division is taking steps to address this problem for all College-owned equipment, which means that as of January 1, 2015, we will discontinue support of MAC OS prior to version 10.5, Microsoft Windows OS prior to Vista, and Android prior to version 4.04. Employees and students who use their own devices to access College resources should take action to upgrade or replace software which may fail to operate as expected as early as January, 2015.
These changes are a result of improved security measures being mandated in order for us to provide continued access to our applications. If you have any questions, concerns, or access issues, please call the Helpdesk at 517-483-5221.
