Magento 1 EOL is Just Around the Corner

Here’re some crucial points to keep in mind about the Magento 1 End-of-Life.

What’s Magento 1 End-of-Life?

Magento has officially announced M1 EOL on September 6, 2018. So, after June 2020, Magento will NOT release new features and security patches. As a result, M1 applications might become vulnerable and prone to frequent crashes.

In case of any uncertainty, Magento 1 official support won’t be available to help you out of the mess.

How Magento 1 EOL Could Affect Your Business?

Using the latest Magento version is always the best practice. The M1 EOL means no new security patches or updates. This would make your M1 stores easy targets for vulnerability exploits and malware attacks.

Moreover, the technologies used in Magento 1 are rapidly becoming obsolete and getting the supporting tools and services for M1 platform will become a business roadblock.
