Browser Recommendations

Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates from Microsoft. This means that IE versions below 11 will no longer be supported. For more information, visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/gp/microsoft-internet-explorer.

Java Security

For security purposes, users should ensure that their desktop is updated with latest release of Java. The latest release of Java 7 is required to run any Oracle Financials Core Applications (Oracle Labor Distribution, Sunflower Assets, and other Core Oracle Modules). Users may disable Java if not needed for administrative computing purposes.

Users should also have the latest antivirus & malware software installed on their computer, and limit web browsing to trusted sites required for administrative computing.
