One step we are taking to safeguard customer data is to cease engaging in data transmission that uses TLS v1.0 or 1.1. On June 10, 2022, ZOLL emsCharts will no longer use these protocols to transmit data. Therefore, versions of our ZOLL emsCharts for Windows software older than v3.8.2, will no longer work without explicit user action to perform a software update to a newer version.
The following was emailed to ZOLL | emsCharts for Windows Administrators on January 27th, 2022
To accommodate the COVID-19-related resource constraints many customers are currently experiencing, ZOLL Data Systems has temporarily halted the disablement of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 set for January 30, 2022. We will communicate the new date for planned disablement after ensuring that all ZOLL emsCharts customers have resources in place and target dates for this migration.
Meanwhile, if you have resources available and have not yet prepared for the disablement, please complete the following actions as soon as possible.
Please ensure that your agency has upgraded all its devices to ZOLL emsCharts for Windows version 3.8.2 (released March 2021) or higher. We strongly recommend that all agencies switch to the newest version of the application, 4.1.
IMPORTANT! To take advantage of the new emsCharts for Windows EKG Cloud Import functionality, you must first uninstall your existing version of emsCharts for Windows even if you are already on version 4. If you do not already have emsCharts for Windows installed, you can proceed with a normal installation.
