Support for Internet Explorer 11 ends in June – is your organisation ready?
Many organisations still have applications or group policies that rely on Internet Explorer. From June 15th 2022, Microsoft is no longer supporting this legacy browser, in what is called ‘Internet Explorer end of life’. There are several paths your organisation can take to overcome this challenge.
Internet explorer end of life solution 1 – Pay up
One option to deal with Internet Explorer 11 end-of-life is to contact Microsoft and ask for extended support. However, this means paying through the nose – for most organisations, this option will be too expensive to stomach – and is little more than effectively keeping your IE apps on life support.
Internet explorer end of life solution 1 – Do nothing
Another path is to rely on something called “IE Mode”. This is a new feature provided by Microsoft Edge, the browser which comes with Windows 10 and has replaced Internet Explorer. IE Mode integrates some legacy functionality into the new Edge browser, so your users can browse the internet securely, with the browser opening apps designed for Internet Explorer in a special IE view.
