Long-Term Support for PHP 5.6 and 7.1
Gain the freedom to upgrade on your schedule while maintaining compliance standards with PHP 5.6 & 7.1 LTS and runtimes from Zend.
Is your PHP version no longer community supported? No problem. With Zend, you get full support and security until you're ready to upgrade.
Refactoring a large, legacy codebase can be a long, expensive process. With Zend, you can avoid those costs and focus on what matters.
Keeping up with compliance standards like SOX, PCI, or HIPPA can be complex and expensive. Keep it simple and stay compliant with LTS from Zend.
Zend LTS includes 24/7/365 support from a global team of PHP experts, with two-hour support responses, critical security patches, bug fixes, and more.

If you have PHP apps running these versions — including Magento, Word Press, Drupal, and custom software — you no longer get security patches or bug fixes from the community. This means your apps are more vulnerable to attacks, at a higher risk of instability issues, and take longer to modify due to longer test cycles.
Community PHP releases are fully supported for only two years. So, if you depend on the community for timely PHP patches and bug fixes, you need to continually update your PHP runtimes based on the community’s schedule.
If you don’t keep your PHP runtimes up to date with the community’s support timelines, your PHP applications will have known security vulnerabilities and other issues that can jeopardize application performance and availability.
When you depend on the community for updates, you need to manually check for, download, and deploy new releases.
With Zend support, you get automatic updates to PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.1 runtimes, for both security patches and bug fixes.
In addition to runtime updates, Zend support comes with on-demand, consultative support for PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.1. You can take advantage of 2-hour, mission-critical response times every day of the year. And all support-level options include help with PHP issues and questions around topics such as:

Zend services feature support for PHP 5.6, PHP 7.1, and PHP 7.3, including on-demand consultative support bug fixes, security patches, and more.
PHP 5.6 support ended on December 31, 2018. For PHP applications using PHP 5.6, Zend support services provide long-term support via security patches and bug fixes.
