Microsoft names and shames software vendors who still demand SMB v1 support

Google is not the only company still releasing software which demands the old SMB v1 file sharing protocol to be available on a Windows network.

In fact, a wide variety of applications still demands this legacy protocol, which Microsoft has deprecated since 2014, and which Microsoft is disabling completely in the next version of Windows 10.

Microsoft has now taken to naming and shaming the software vendors, and have created a list of applications which need updating.

The list includes:

Vendor – Product – Documentation

Microsoft is regularly updating the list, which is not comprehensive and is taking submissions at or tweet @nerdpyle with hashtag #StillNeedsSMB1.
