Retired Versions

Gold-Vision 7

Gold-Vision 7 is considered a retired version due to core technologies which are unsupported over which we have no control, this provides a security risk for your Gold-Vision database if you are currently using it.

Gold-Vision 8 includes modern security controls and a much improved user interface and integrations.

Please get in touch with us on support@gold-vision.com should you wish to discuss your upgrade.

 

Key retirement areas for Gold-Vision 7 product are:

  • ActiveX Controls are used for a number of features, used in combination with Internet Explorer.  IE11 has been dropped by Microsoft during June 2022.  These features will expire. 
  • Security & Authentication – Gold-Vision 7 has 3.5 and 4.5 .net framework embedded.  The last revision for 4.5 was April 2022.  Importantly, Microsoft are no longer providing security patches for the framework exposing a potential security vulnerability.
  • Integration and authentication has moved to Social Authentication tokens and the loss of Basic Auth (and to an extent Windows Auth) as a third-party validation method. This will impact the current Gold-Vision mail-scanning as their will be a removal of support for basic authentication protocols from 1st October 2022.

 

If you are currently using Gold-Vision 7, please contact us to discuss a Gold-Vision 8 upgrade and we can also advise on the environment required.

For eligible businesses there is an option via the government’s Help to Grow: Digital Scheme which can save you up to 50% of year 1 subscriptions, should you choose to upgrade to the Gold-Vision 8 Cloud environment.
