Magento 1.x has been the lifeblood of many e-commerce businesses over the last decade, however, all good things must come to an end. With the release of Magento 2, software updates for the 1.x environment will soon cease.
This is expected to leave Magento 1.x sites stagnant, without new security patches being released to address newly discovered vulnerabilities One month later, PHP 5.x will sunset, leaving the vast majority of Magento 1.x sites vulnerable to even more future security threats.
Risk a Major Security Event
Make sure that you plan ahead. As Seth Rand always says, “Be proactive, not reactive.” Plan ahead to avoid being caught in the rush of companies looking to replatform to Magento 2 or another e-commerce platform at the last minute. Do not risk lost sales, ruining your brand’s reputation, mitigation costs of cleaning up after your site is hacked, or damages due to stolen data from a security hack.
