Capture partner TLS version information during handshake

For all communications protocols (FTPs, SFTP, AS2, ConnectDirect etc), we would like to capture TLS version in logs. In case of upgrades, it helps to work with respective partners to upgrade to supported TLS version.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

when we stop lower versions of TLS, it will be easier to gather all partners who use that version by searching in logs. Then we will be able to work effectively with only those partners to upgrade to higher versions
