Admincontrol take security seriously and are working continuously to ensure that our service is compliant with the latest security standards and advances within the security field.
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) web browser is unfortunately an outdated program based on older technologies. This means that it does not support modern technologies and that you as a user are at a higher risk of attacks if you choose to use this browser. Therefore, we have decided to phase out support for IE in our solutions from 01 September 2021.
Content Security Policy (CSP) is a protection mechanism supported by all other modern browsers today. CSP is an added layer of defense that helps to detect and protect against certain types of attacks, including Cross Site Scripting (XSS) and data injection attacks. Admincontrol uses CSP to protect our users against such attacks. IE does not support this, and you are therefore not able to take advantage of this protection by using IE .
IE has a lengthy list of security bugs, since 2000 there have been over 1000 serious vulnerabilities tied to it. The main usage of IE has been on older operating systems that no longer are supported and no longer receive security updates, like Windows XP and Windows 7. If you are using any of these, you are at high risk due to unpatched security vulnerabilities that cyber criminals can take advantage of.
Microsoft will stop supporting and providing security updates for IE by the end of August 2021. Therefore Admincontrol will stop supporting IE after 01 September 2021. It is therefore recommended that you move away from IE as soon as possible.
You will still be able to access your portals, but by the latter half of 2021, existing functions might not work as expected and updated (or new) features may not work at all.
We recommend switching to one of the following browsers, which are the most used and actively supported alternatives: Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
