Do you know which version of Progress Sitefinity your website is running on?

Do you know which version of Progress Sitefinity your website is running on?

If the answer is anything other than Sitefinity 15, we need to talk.

Sitefinity, a feature-rich CMS platform, releases a version update each year. If your website was built on Sitefinity, upgrading to the latest version not only allows you to leverage the latest features and enhancements, but it also ensures you continue to receive security patches and technical support critical to the performance and upkeep of your website.

Why Upgrade to Sitefinity 15?

Progress Sitefinity recommends upgrading your version of their software at least once a year to take advantage of the latest features and functionality, performance improvements, and bug fixes. Most importantly, they encourage you to be proactive about upgrading.

Upgrading on a regular basis preserves the performance and security of your website. With each new software update Sitefinity releases, Progress sets a sunset date for the previous version. When a version of Sitefinity is sunset, websites running on that version no longer have access to technical support. No further product updates or security patches will be issued for that version, either, leaving your website susceptible to potential security vulnerabilities.

For example, if your website is currently running on Sitefinity 14.0, you are no longer eligible to receive enterprise support from Progress as of September 2023.

Additionally, the greater the gap between versions of Sitefinity, the more work will be required to get your website up-to-date, which could in turn raise the cost of upgrading.

Upgrading is a necessary step to safeguarding your most valuable digital asset.
