Why Magento Upgrades & Updates Are Important for Your eStore

Magento powers over quarter of a million (active) websites all arounds the world. With its increasing number of users, the Magento stores are getting more and more sophisticated by the day. But internet can be a tricky place for even the choicest of secured websites. If you own a Magento eStore or thinking to migrating to one, you need to give utmost importance to the security of your eCommerce store. For more secure your website, more independently can you share information with your audience.

Just like any other popular software, upgrades and updates are a regular part of a software’s life. And Magento is no exception; it has a large developer team and a larger community of developers who help contribute towards a number of Magento upgrades & updates. Magento platform specialists can help you leverage the features of Magento and ensure the security of your site. How? Let’s take a look!

Why Do You Need Regular Software Updates And Upgrades?

There are number of reasons why software updates (patches) and upgrades are necessary (like):

  • Certain performance enhancements

  • Bug fixes

  • Including new features

  • Security Enhancements/fixes

Among the aforementioned reasons, perhaps the one which gets the most priority is security. It is not necessary that the new features accompanied with the software update/upgrade MUST be useful for your business. Moreover, your business might not even be using the buggy features that are corrected with the update. But every eStore owner is potentially at risk because of security gaps.

In case your site is compromised, it’s not just your brand name that gets smudged, but your business comes to an unexpected halt. If you want to save yourself the trouble to explain to your customers about the website hack, you need to maintain your website regularly by

whenever prompted (or hire Magento developers to do the same). What are the consequences if your Magento store is hacked?

  • Your customer’s personal information is compromised along with their financial data (Credit/Debit Card information). They can also be a victim of identity theft.

  • Merchants could damage their reputations and lose their trusted customers.

  • Moreover, there are much grave financial and legal consequences that go beyond that of a security breach i.e lawsuits, threats of lawsuits, etc. In extreme cases, businesses may have their privileges revoked from financial institutions or even face higher processing fees.

Security of your website should be your primary concern, always! And one can ensure that by updating and upgrading their Magento platforms at all times.
