Internet Explorer Support
Starting January 12, 2016, Microsoft will only provide security updates for the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system. What does that mean? It means the security of your browser sessions will be impacted if you are not able to receive new security updates. Visit the Internet Explorer Support Lifecycle Policy FAQ's page for more details.
