Once the cornerstone of many websites on the internet, Adobe Flash Player is finally going into retirement. After Dec. 31, support for the software will end. This means that it needs to be removed from your business’ technology before then.
Adobe Flash Player was deprecated back in 2017, but its official end-of-life date lands at the end of this year. The software will gradually show more vulnerabilities that will not be mitigated, and, therefore, the software will be far more susceptible to attack. Therefore, it is important that you check to make sure that any place Flash Player would be, including your internet browsers on your computers and mobile devices, isn’t still installed there.
Chances are pretty good that you haven’t used Flash Player for some time, simply because other options are more useful. Despite the platform once dominating the space, it will soon be little more than a liability. Unfortunately, this also means that any legacy software that relies on Flash will not function after the year ends and will also need to be removed.
