Since June 2020, the ecommerce platform Magento 1 has no longer been supported. This means that if you’re still using this leading online retail solution, you must migrate to Magento 2 without delay.
Why is Magento 1 to Magento 2 migration so important? Because businesses still using Magento 1 are no longer receiving the code upgrades and security patches that make Magento 2 such a world-beating, secure ecommerce platform.
In September 2020, around 2,000 online stores still using the outdated Magento 1 were hacked, in what cyber security experts are calling the largest documented campaign of its kind.
Businesses fell victim to the scam, which injected malicious code to steal customers’ payment information, because the old Magento version they were using was no longer secure.
As this case proves, failing to migrate your online store to Magento 2 is a false economy. Trust is absolutely essential to customers, who must feel that their financial information is 100% safe with your company. If they have reason to doubt the security of your ecommerce platform, customers will take their spending power elsewhere.
