Why safefive safefive offers Long Term Support (LTS) for Shopware 5!
Who is safefive suitable for?
What does safefive offer and who is behind it?
There are many good reasons to keep a store up-to-date and secure. One of them is: hackers rarely sleep and attacks on store systems have been increasing for years. The target of these attacks is the sensitive personal data of your customers stored in the store systems. These must be protected at all costs. Security patches close attack gaps.
The advantages of safefive
More time for your relaunch thanks to Long Term Support with safefive
You have more time to complete your relaunch or migration in peace because your store is protected in the best possible way during this time.
More time for your agency
Agencies only have limited resources. In order for them to do high-quality work and meet timelines, some projects can start later. In the waiting time you can protect your store optimally.
More time for Shopware and plugin providers
If you are waiting for some features that are currently missing from Shopware 6 to be implemented, you can use safefive to keep your Shopware 5 store running safely until then.
PCI/DSS is a standard designed to prevent fraud in credit card payments. One component of this standard is that the software is always kept up to date and current without delay.
