Why you shouldn’t use unsupported software
Unsupported software will not receive updates or security fixes which are vital in maintaining your system’s security. This leaves your system vulnerable to hackers who actively target unsupported systems.
In addition, as per your obligations outlined in the PEXA Subscriber Security Policy: "Subscribers are required to maintain the security of their computer systems and keep them up to date, including taking reasonable steps to install patches and operating system updates."
When using unsupported software, this obligation can no longer be met as these products are not supported.
What action is required?
In order to ensure your compliance with the PEXA Subscriber Security Policy, you must upgrade as soon as possible to a supported version of Windows or macOS. Please note that for Mac users, you may have to purchase a new machine in order to upgrade to a supported operating system.
PEXA recommends reaching out to your IT professional or industry body to assist you with this upgrade.
PEXA is responsible for maintaining the security of the network and may take steps to prevent user access to the platform from these unsupported operating systems, to ensure this.
