Drupal is an “out of the box” web content management tool as well as a customizable platform -- to help you build the right tool to serve your content management strategy. Business and technology leaders use Drupal to create real-world enterprise solutions that empower web innovation. When assessing Drupal, it’s important to envision your goals and ask “Can Drupal be used to build this?” The answer nearly always is “yes”. Drupal offers limitless potential with native features and module extensions. It’s a platform for the next disruptive technology, without disruption to your business.

  1. Highly Scalable: Even if you’re delivering the world’s greatest digital experience to your customers, it won’t matter if your site gets hit with lots of traffic and goes down. Drupal can keep up and ensure that your site’s available - even when you’re really popular.
  2. Traffic Spikes or Constant Traffic: The Weather Company uses Drupal to help manage content on its Weather.com site, among the 100 or so busiest sites in the world. Others, like GRAMMY.com and publications in the Time Inc. family, handle periodic traffic spikes easily -- all on Drupal.
  3. Accommodates Content Growth: Drupal scales to support the most content-rich sites and experiences - it won’t bend or break. Corporate site? Commerce-focused? Media and publishing? Brand marketing site? Create all the content you want. Drupal can handle it - and ensure your site always runs in turbo mode.
  4. Scales to handle more traffic, content - and users! Whether you have 1 or 1,000 content contributors (or more!), Drupal is up to the task. Scalability is Drupal’s middle name -- handling high volumes of visitors, content and Drupal users. It’s all in a day’s work for sites running on Drupal.
  5. Mobile-First: Build responsive sites and also create web applications that deliver optimal visitor experiences, no matter what device they’re on. Drupal supports responsive design best practices and ensures your users get a seamless content experience every time, on every device.
  6. Integrated Digital Applications: Drupal integrates easily with a wide ecosystem of digital marketing technology and other business applications, so you can use the best set of tools today, and flex with new tools tomorrow. And, Drupal’s API-first focus means connecting content to other sites and applications, making content more powerful.
  7. Security: Drupal is a proven, secure CMS and application framework that stands up to the most critical internet vulnerabilities in the world to prevent the worst from happening. Drupal is mature, stable and designed with robust security in mind. Organizations around the world -- including leading corporations, brands, and governments -- rely on Drupal for mission-critical sites and applications, testing its security against the most stringent standards. A dedicated security team, along with a large professional service provider ecosystem, and one of the largest developer communities in the world ensure rapid response to issues. Many security problems are prevented enhttp://thedotdev.in/administrator/index.php?option=com_tz_portfolio&view=article&layout=edittirely by Drupal’s strong coding standards and rigorous community code review process.
  8. Secure Access: Out of the box, Drupal account passwords are encrypted--salted and repeatedly hashed--when they are stored in the database. Drupal can support a wide variety of password policies such as minimum length, complexity, or expiration. Industry standard authentication practices are also supported including SSL and 2-factor authentication. Many single sign-on systems are integrated with Drupal in production applications, including LDAP, Shibboleth, OpenID, and SAML.
  9. Granular User Access Control: Drupal can give administrators complete control over who can see and who can modify every part of a site. Drupal operates based on a system of extensible user roles and access permissions. Administrators can create user roles and give them specific, limited permissions. For example, a site might need an author role that can create and update content, but not publish or delete it--permissions reserved for the editor role--while administrative settings are reserved for a separate role entirely. Authenticated users can be assigned any number of roles, and their permissions are cumulative. Menu links and features are automatically hidden from users who do not have appropriate access.
  10. Database Encryption: In high security applications, Drupal can be configured for extremely strong database encryption. When whole-database encryption is not desired, very high granularity is available to protect more specific information: user accounts, specific forms, and even the values of specific fields can be encrypted in an otherwise plain text database. The encryption system can be configured to pass the strictest PCI, HIPAA, and state privacy laws, including offsite encryption key management.
  11. Preventing XSS, CSRF, and other malicious data entry: Drupal’s Form API ensures that data is validated and scrubbed before entry in the database. The system tests that user-entered data and even the form fields themselves match prescribed, expected formats and values. Tokens are injected into each form as it is generated, to protect against potential CSRF attacks. Drupal’s database abstraction layer performs additional security checks on data as it is written to and retrieved from the database.
  12. Brute Force Detection: Drupal protects against brute-force password attacks by limiting the number of login attempts from a single IP address over a predefined period of time. Failed login attempts are logged and visible via the administrative interface. Drupal can also be configured to allow administrators to ban individual IP addresses and address ranges.
  13. Mitigating Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks: Drupal’s extensible cache layer comes pre-configured with basic page, Javascript, and CSS caches. The system supports deep integration with performance technologies such as Memcache, Redis, Varnish, and many popular CDN services. Individual components of Drupal are typically cached as well, and granular expiry is a common feature. This multi-layered cache architecture is extremely resistant to high volumes of traffic, and makes Drupal the system of choice for some of the world’s highest traffic websites.
  14. Addresses OWASP Top 10 Risks: Drupal includes features that address all of the Open Web Application Security Project’s top ten security risks, a list of the most commonly seen risks in practice.
  15. Easy Content Authoring: Intuitive tools in Drupal for content creation, workflow and publishing make it easy for content creators to do their jobs. Authentication and permissions help manage editorial workflows efficiently, and previews show how content will look on any device before users approve and publish.
  16. Mobile Editing: On-the-go team members can review, edit and approve content from mobile devices, like iPhones, iPads and Android devices, to keep content and campaigns flowing, regardless of where they are and what device they’re on.
  17. In-place Authoring: Drupal allows you to create content with a WYSIWYG editor or to create and edit content in-place: browse to a page, click on the content, and edit right in the context of the content.
  18. Content Revisioning: Drupal enables a quick and easy way to track all changes and revisions - a necessary capability if you have multiple editors and need to maintain a history of content changes. Drupal tells you who did what, when, out of the box.
  19. Content Workflows: Drupal lets you create and manage custom, editorial workflows for all your content processes. Drupal lets you view the stage your content is in from creation to review to publication and lets you manage user roles and actions, automatically.
  20. Content Tagging and Taxonomy: Beyond creating content, Drupal’s strength is creating structured content, define content elements, tag content based on any attributes, create relevant taxonomy for content so it can be searched, found, used, and reused in ways that satisfy visitors.
  21. Flexible Content Architecture: Create the right content architecture using the Admin Interface or do it programmatically. Display only the content appropriate for each context with powerful display mode tools and views. Include a variety of media types (images, video, pdfs, etc.). Customizable menus create a comfortable user experience, creating paths to content across multiple devices.
  22. Multisite: Manage many sites across your organization, brands, geographies and campaigns on a single platform that allows quick, easy site creation and deployment.
  23. Tools for Business, with No Limitations: Drupal doesn’t dictate to the business; the business dictates what it needs from Drupal. Too many CMS platforms impose their will on your business, forcing you to conform to their way of doing things. Drupal acts the opposite way: use Drupal to create a solution that supports your specific business needs. Drupal creates a foundation for limitless solutions.
  24. Multilingual: Drupal’s built-in language handling abilities deliver value to those who need localised digital experiences, saving them time and money in the process. Building multilingual sites is now faster and easier than ever. Four core modules in Drupal 8 allow full translation of every part of a site. Quickly build everything from customized sites in any language to complex multilingual web applications with dynamic, language-based displays, using multiple admin languages and translation workflows all in Drupal.
  25. Translate Everything: Administrators and customers don’t always speak the same language. Drupal not only offers complete content translation workflows to allow businesses to talk directly to their visitors. It also gives individuals who work on the site--administrators, content authors, translators--the choice of their own interface language. Every part of the interface itself can be translated or customised to match your needs, too.
  26. Run Drupal in Your Language: Drupal 8 can be installed in 94 languages, without the need for installing any additional components. You can choose your site default language and English can be turned off or even deleted if you don’t need it. Multilingual sites can dynamically display not only translated content to their visitors, but even entirely locally-tailored information, different page layouts and elements, based on customisable factors like browser language. Language information forms part of search results and can be exposed via Drupal’s Search API.
  27. More Languages, Fewer Admin Headaches: Drupal was designed with multilingual use cases in mind. This includes making the life of site administrators easier. Once installed, language packages can be securely, automatically downloaded and implemented without overriding your customised translations. Custom translations can be packaged and deployed across multiple properties. The built-in translation interface provides an overview screen for translators, integrates plural handling, and is responsive like the rest of Drupal allowing for on-the-fly access or fixes from any device.
  28. Strong Stack Foundation: Drupal lives on a modern LAMP technology stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, which together are meeting the needs of fast-moving, flexible, agile enterprises and brands building next generation digital platforms.
  29. Community of Talent and Experience: The worldwide Drupal community shares its secrets on how to get things done, right. If you have a question, someone has the answer. Leverage the power of open source by building on previously-created solutions. Drupal developers have access to worldwide community experience. When was the last time your software provider gave you this much support?
  30. Content as a Service: Web content used to have one purpose in life: to get pushed to a web page viewed through a desktop browser. But content now must flow freely to sites, native apps, connected devices and show up on third-party sites and social networks too. Digital experiences demand content flexibility. Drupal’s content-as-a-service approach opens the door to ultimate flexibility.
  31. Infinitely Reusable, Future-Proof Content: Most CMSes try to do it all. They manage content in a back-end repository and push it to “front-end” templates that serve up an experience (often static). Drupal lets you decouple the back and front ends where useful. So Drupal content can exist as reusable chunks, free from presentation, ready for creative delivery to sites and apps. Content becomes future-proof.
  32. Unleash Front-End Developers To Build Better Experiences: Drupal’s presentation-neutral content and a restful API means front-end developers can come off their leash. They can build interactive sites and apps how they want. Faster. And use tools and frameworks like Node, Angular, Backbone, Ember and others. Free from CMS constraints so their creative vision can be realized and not compromised by the CMS itself.
  33. Fill the Content Bucket More Easily: Your content doesn’t just have to come from your organization. Today, content needs to move in and out freely. Drupal makes it easy to ingest third-party content (e.g. from aggregators and syndicators), bringing content into your Drupal environment, then making it easy to push to any site, app or channel.
  34. Share Content Beyond Your Sites: Today, organizations want to share content across many different channels and apps, and get that content out where the audiences are inside of content aggregators disrupting the news business. Content teams need an easy way to create content, then share it with minimal effort. With Drupal’s content-as-a-service capability, Drupal content is easily consumed by other sites and apps you choose.
  35. Change the Look, Change the Experience in a Snap: Separating back-end content from front-end presentation offers a big bonus. It makes it easy for Drupal front-end developers to redesign or reskin an experience, minus worrying about the content in the CMS. With Drupal, redesigns are a snap - change the look, change the experience.
