How can you buy yourself and your organization time to develop new production code while receiving updated security patches?

Your current PHP version is no longer supported.
Security compliance must be maintained; however, upgrades may break your code.
Your current web apps may need costly custom PHP updates to stay functional.
Working with old or poorly documented code is error-prone and leads to new bugs.
Extend the life of your hardware and software assets while conserving DevOps resources.
