The Magento team (now part of Adobe) announced back in 2018 that support for Magento 1 would end June 2020. Anybody using Magento 1 past June 2020 will not benefit from new patches or security updates. There had been a previous announcement about ending Magento 1 support in 2018, but due to the sheer number of Magento 1 websites that needed to be migrated to Magento 2, that date was pushed to June 2020. There will be no other delay this time around, so if your website is still using Magento 1, you should start thinking about migrating it to Magento 2 well before the June 2020 end of support deadline.
Magento 1 was not bad security-wise, but Magento 2 was developed with improved security in mind, for one simple reason: even the smallest e-commerce store has customer information that may attract criminals.
Unlike on other platforms, security is not an add-on or, even worse, an afterthought on Magento 2. Security is built right into the core of Magento 2, making it very hard for criminals to reach any significant segment of the e-commerce platform.
Due to the significant improvements in the technology it incorporates, its modularity and performance, Magento 2 is a very stable platform, even more so than its predecessor.
What that means is that you will spend way less time debugging problems and way more time adding new features/improvements to your e-commerce website. And don’t worry, you won’t lose overall response speed while adding new elements or functionalities to your website, even for multiple geographic regions.
Magento 2 brings fundamental changes to the well-known e-commerce platform, improving almost all its aspects.
The aim is to make Magento 2 more attractive to bigger enterprises, a segment Magento 1 has rarely targeted. The official development team is adding new features to Magento 2 every three months – this applies to both Magento Community and Enterprise Editions. You can confidently keep using and updating your Magento (2) store even well beyond June 2020.
