Our recent product enhancements have elevated security levels beyond the capabilities of legacy operating systems, specifically Windows XP and Vista. In order to enhance your user experience and help keep you compliant with the latest security essentials, our recommendations for browser and operating systems are listed below.
Operating Systems And Devices
The majority of valuation professionals run a Windows operating system, but only 10% are using the latest version. Surprisingly, some businesses are still on Windows XP and Vista. Windows ended support for Vista this past April and Windows XP has been unsupported for several years now, which means updates to protect against known vulnerabilities are no longer available.
10% of Internet Explorer (IE) users are running outdated versions including IE 8, 9, and 10. Microsoft announced in January that it would no longer provide security patches and updates to IE versions below 10. That means more security vulnerabilities will be publicized, unpatched and open to exploitation. We recommend moving to a browser like Google Chrome which receives automatic updates and patches. Chrome is also the best rated browser for HTML 5, which provides the highest compatibility for ACI Sky products. You can test your browser quality by clicking here.
In the best interest of your business, it’s critical to update your systems to the latest version(s) supported by the manufacturer. If you are using an unsupported operating system and have questions regarding updates, please contact the ACI One Call team. All system requirements can be found on aciweb.com.
