Esri is committed to providing strong security for the ArcGIS platform by using the latest industry standards and best practices for security protocols. To meet these industry expectations, we are making an important update to ArcGIS Online in February 2019 that is likely to affect most ArcGIS software and custom solutions. With this change, we are enforcing the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security) version 1.2 only and will remove support for earlier TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1.
