Magento has announced that all services for Magento 1 will reach end of life by July 1, 2020. This means that Magento will no longer support quality fixes or security patches to merchants using the Magento 1 platform.
In addition to improved security and support from Magento, there are meaningful benefits for retailers who upgrade to the Magento 2 platform. The upgrade unlocks powerful speed, customer experience, and marketing enhancements that will allow for increased performance and scalability.
