Transport Layer Security (TLS) provides privacy and data integrity between communicating applications. SAP SuccessFactors will only support TLS 1.1 or higher to align with industry best practices.

Customers using web browsers, platforms or applications that rely on TLS 1.0 must upgrade to TLS 1.1 or 1.2.  Learn more on the Community.
