Maintaining Magento 1 Security from a Magento 2 Agency
At the end of this month, official support for the Magento 1 platform will end. EOL was announced for the original Magento platform back in September 2018, giving merchants ample time to make the switch from M1 to the new and improved Magento 2 platform. However, with less than two weeks left until EOL, over 150,000 eCommerce web stores are still running on the Magento 1 platform. These websites need to quickly secure support from a Magento 2 agency to keep their eCommerce sites supported after June 30th.
Forix is a certified Magento 2 agency with the skills and experience necessary to maintain security and support for Magento 1 websites after end of life comes to pass. We’ve developed a comprehensive security package for our Magento 1 clients to help protect their M1 websites from cyber security threats. Our Magento 1 security and ongoing support services can help keep your website secure and protected from cyber threats that lurk around every corner.
Why Magento 1 Security and Support Matters
Once official support ends, M1 websites will find themselves increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks, including threats from hackers, malware, spamming, DDoS attacks, and more. Maintaining a high level of security is essential to protect your data and keep your website in compliance. Failure to do so could result in data breaches or theft of user data, which can be disastrous for an eCommerce company.
Additionally, once official support for M1 ends, important third party integrations that you rely on to keep your website running smoothly may begin to break down. As extension creators shift their focus from M1 to M2, your site may lose functionality due to outdated or broken integrations including those used for payment, product management, and marketing campaigns.
