Microsoft have announced a “pricing realignment” in October intended to “highlight the benefits of our pricing for a cloud-first world”. We think this means continuing the squeeze on those resisting the move to the cloud! Unfortunately we will see 10% increase in the price of Office and various on-premises editions. Get your upgrades in early!
Just a reminder that from October 2018 Microsoft will be blocking weak security traffic. Your systems need to have TLS 1.2 or above enabled or you will no longer be able to access your Office 365 services online.
If you use any of these versions start planning your upgrade NOW!
- Android 4.3 and earlier versions
- Firefox version 5.0 and earlier versions
- Internet Explorer 8-10 on Windows 7 and earlier versions
- Internet Explorer 10 on Win Phone 8.0
- Safari 6.0.4/OS X10.8.4 and earlier versions
There may be others so do check carefully.
