It’s important to keep up to date with all software systems, not only to avoid the inevitable error message when the outdated solution is no longer compatible, but to keep your business and customers safe from bugs and security issues.
Updating your current version of Magento can often be a mammoth task, so it is advised to seek out specialists who can carry out the upgrade safely. It’s common to come into error messages, and even the upgraded version overwriting your data, so it’s best to rely on the professionals, particularly if you have customisations or third party integration already built into your Magento version.
Security – if you want to maintain a brand which customers trust, your security infrastructure must be gold standard. When security issues or loopholes are identified, Magento releases upgrades to patch these up. It’s responsible to keep your customers safe, and stay alert whenever security issues are flagged.
