2019 08 May

Why should Drupal be your first choice of open source CMS?

 

Something that started as a small community within India, a decade ago, is something that developers now swear by. As the number of developers increases multi-fold, here’s a snippet of its very melodious roots!

 

 

But what is all the buzz about? Drupal is an open source platform for building digital experiences. We already know of the many benefits and boons that open source comes with.

Here are a few reasons why you should prioritize security and make Drupal your first choice:

OWASP

Owasp

 

The Open Web Application Security Project, or OWASP, is an international non-profit organization dedicated to web application security. It runs on the core principle that everything should be accessible and available free of cost, making it easier for anyone to enhance their own web security.

Drupal meets all security standards set by OWASP, allowing you to have an open canvas while defining the security boundaries.

The Security Team:

Security

 

Drupal is home to 40 security experts from around the world who manage the CMS security. They ensure that any vulnerabilities in Drupal’s core platform are quickly rectified. The team also generates the documentation required in order to combat security-related glitches.

Community

Community

 

For any great open source software, there is always a well-knit community striving to make it better and flexible. When a massive amount of people work on something in synergy, it’s bound to be more reliable and secure. People who are part of a community are very motivated to give out high-quality outputs.

Also, as a result of a large community, any and all bugs get fixed within a few hours itself.

Encryption of Database

Database Encryption

 

Data can be encrypted using Drupal. The CMS configured can encrypt the database on all levels and parts of a website. This makes it easy to host content like user accounts and forms. Drupal passes all privacy standards through its encryption.

Trusted by large enterprises

Large Enterprise

 

The large enterprises (or the government itself) have sensitive and confidential data and can’t afford security breaches. Drupal is trusted by a lot of these organizations to host their content and information which is a matter of goodwill and reputation. In fact, several times, these organizations have released articles on why they think open source and Drupal has been extremely efficient for them.

All in all, there are various reasons why Drupal is reliable and secure. It allows both, public and private file system and is highly convenient. The frequent releases with upgraded paths cover the latest vulnerabilities. If you’re looking for a CMS, make Drupal your first choice and sleep soundly knowing your platform is secure!
