News Updates

NEW: Important Security Update for Portal and Direct Integration Users of EAD Effective Sunday, June 7, 2020, we have updated the Electronic Appraisal Delivery (EAD) website security settings to align with industry-wide best practices, and support our ongoing commitment to maintain the strongest possible security infrastructure. This change will affect your ability to access EAD if you are not using supported browser settings. What has changed?The TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 security protocols have been disabled as of June 7, 2020. Users must use a browser that is TLS 1.2 encryption enabled. How can I ensure that my browser will be fully supported?All recent web browsers support TLS 1.2 by default. We strongly recommend you use the latest supported version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE 11) as the preferred/supported browser for EAD. Other browsers (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Safari) may still work but are not fully supported. Will platforms with a Direct Integration with EAD be affected?TLS 1.0 and 1.1 have been disabled for Direct Integrations to EAD on June 7, 2020. Instructions have been sent to all EAD Direct Integration vendors to test their connection with TLS 1.2 and ensure they will not be impacted by this change. Please contact your platform vendor if you have additional questions.
