Version of TLS Used in VCL Cloud Pack


We recently received an email from Dropbox saying we are using a Deprecated version of TLS, see below:

We’re reaching out because your app(s) EMPSecure have recently made calls to the Dropbox API using a deprecated TLS protocol version.
Beginning on or after April 13, the Dropbox API will require that calls use TLS 1.2 or greater. Traffic using TLS 1.0 or 1.1 will be rejected.
The latest Dropbox SDKs will select TLS 1.2 when available in the environment, but versions over two years old may require an update. In particular, users of the Dropbox Java SDK should update to v3.1.1 (released June, 2019) or later & Dropbox Python SDK should update to v8.4.1 (released November, 2017) or later.
TLS 1.2 has been the default on major mobile & desktop operating systems since 2014. Developers whose application may be run in older or unusual environments should investigate to ensure compatibility.
Please update your apps to ensure that they use TLS 1.2 when connecting to the Dropbox API.

We also have a macOS SWIFT version of the software so the deprecated version of TLS may have originated there, we are reviewing that as well.

Can you please confirm that, if used, the VCL CloudPack uses TLS Version 1.2 or greater?

Thank you,
