It's Coming: Are You Ready for Magento 1 End of Life?
It’s official. Support for Magento 1 is coming to an end, and soon. In September 2018, the platform announced it would cease to provide any further support or security patches for the Magento Commerce 1 platform after June 2020.
What does this mean?
Well, if you’re the owner, webmaster or developer of an e-commerce site, then this could have serious consequences for your website and business.
Once support for Magento 1 is ended, there is a serious ongoing risk to your site’s security and a potential risk of a future data breach - this means your site could be vulnerable to hackers.
As vendor-supplied security patches are no longer supplied, finding security holes and fixing them lies solely on the business, which can become a costly exercise long term. And not doing so runs the potential risk of failing PCI and GDPR compliance.
Migrate to Magento 2
The best way to avoid any risk to your company and website is to upgrade to the new and improved Magento 2 .
Magento 2 is a far superior platform to Magento 1, offering significantly faster load speeds, a more seamless checkout experience and vastly simpler integrations. All of which adds up to a highly improved experience for both front and back-end users.
Not only will this make the website easier for you to manage, but a site that is faster, smoother and easier leads to greater customer conversions. It’s a win win!
With Magento 1 End of Life on its way, start planning your upgrade today:
