I Am a Developer Using Braintree Payments SDKs

Braintree is updating their root SSL provider for API requests based on the latest security standards being followed today.

On May 1, 2020, production level API calls will fail if they are not running on the proper protocols.

In order to ensure your integration will continue working without interruption, make sure to follow the Braintree Best Practices, which includes using one of their SDKs from the minimum required SDK list.

I Am a Developer Using Custom Code Without an SDK

If you have integrated the Braintree Payments API calls using custom code, without any SDK or framework provided by Braintree, then you will need to make sure you are using the TLS 1.2 protocol when  making your HTTP requests to the API endpoints.

PayPal made these changes awhile back, and I have some info in this article that may prove helpful to you here.
