‘Drupal’ is synonymous with advanced security
As an open source project, Drupal has the advantage of scrutiny, maintenance and ongoing input from developers worldwide, as well as a dedicated staff team of security experts collaborating consistently to address and release security fixes.
With more than 1,000,000 developers worldwide contributing — including a large professional service provider ecosystem — the result is one of the most secure and stable platforms on the market.
Drupal is resilient against critical internet vulnerabilities — as evidenced by the proven 15+ year record of the dedicated Security Team identifying and mitigating potential vulnerabilities. Many security problems are prevented entirely by Drupal’s strong coding standards and strict community code review process.
As a result, mission-critical sites and applications choose Drupal, testing its security against the most stringent standards. Banking, governments, public administration and healthcare are the fastest-growing industries adopting Drupal, primarily for the rigorous security.
Recently the European Commission bug bounty program began funding Drupal as an investment in its entities.
Drupal’s security ensures:
- User Access Control
- Database Encryption
- Information sharing via security reports
- Auto-update and core validation work in partnership with GitHub
- Prevention of malicious data entry
- Mitigation of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks
- Patching of issues before they’re exploited
