Your browser identified itself as a version of IE that was often shipped with default settings that were less than secure. Your internet experience could be made more secure by opening Internet Options in your browser, going to the Advanced tab and looking under the security settings for "Use TLS 1.1" and "Use TLS 1.2". Ensure these are turned on (checked). Doing so will enable your browser to support a higher quality of encryption on this and other websites. You will still be able to browse this site without turning on support for TLS 1.1 and 1.2, but we will have to use a lower level of encryption to accomodate you. See this question on Stack Exchange's Superuser forum from 2011 for more details keeping in mind the comments about TLS 1.2 non-support were made many years ago, and things have changed since then.

If the support for better cryptography has been turned on for your browser, thank you, and you can safely ignore this advisory.

Smart Encryption for secure sharing – SecureZIP PartnerLink

SecureZIP PartnerLink provides organizations with a unique option for secure, cost-effective information sharing with a range of partners. This software framework operates on a hub-and-spoke architecture: a main "sponsor" organization working from SecureZIP PartnerLink sends and receives encrypted information to multiple partners. Partners can meet security and compliance requirements without additional cost. Sponsors protect all information and ensure consistency with sharing, regardless of their partners' platforms or infrastructure.

SecureZIP PartnerLink is a Smart Encryption approach to the working reality of varied architecture, security needs, compliance requirements and expectations of simplicity.


  • Operates across major enterprise computing platforms: PartnerLink works without interruption on desktop, server, midrange and mainframe environments.
  • Works within existing security investments: Complements existing security and infrastructure, ensuring protection of data throughout systems.
  • Quick implementation for your partners:  Originating organization implements a full version of SecureZIP for a given server platform, enabling them to securely exchange information with any endpoint. Partners implement a free version of SecureZIP Partner on any supported computing platform, allowing them to send and receive encrypted data exclusively with the PartnerLink sponsor organization.
