Drupal is Secure: 6 Banking & Finance Websites Built on Drupal

Posted in by

"But... is Drupal secure?" 

If you're thinking about Drupal for business, someone on your team has asked this question. The short answer is "YES." 

The long(er) answer: It's secure, provided you maintain proper security protocols.

Drupal is an open source platform. No single company owns Drupal or its code base. Instead, Drupal is maintained by a community of 1,000,000 people working together. Open source offers a security advantage: community monitoring. The Drupal development community is intensely vigilant. When they find a vulnerability, they quickly release security updates.

We could go deep and talk about password encryption, deploying security updates, and other best practices. But sometimes it's better to show than tell. 

So, for this post, we took a look at the banking and finance industry — one of the most strict industries for security and regulation. Then, we compiled this list of banking and financial industry sites built on Drupal.

Special thanks for our partners at Acquia for sharing use cases and insights for this post.
