Why is it Necessary to Upgrade to Magento 2?
Once Magento 1 has reached its end of life status, Magento will no longer be providing security patches and updates for any of its Magento 1 versions (such as Commerce 1 and Open Source 1). Not only does this mean that Magento 1 users are likely to experience their website or plugins becoming unstable, but they’ll also be at risk for security breaches and noncompliance with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Specifically, PCI DSS requirements 6.1 and 6.2 obligate merchants to keep their systems up to date with vendor-supplied security patches in order to address known vulnerabilities in software.
