Keeping your website in check


If you have a Drupal website that is giving you sleepless nights with regards to potential security or performance issues, Adaptive's extensive knowledge and experience can help to identify any potential concerns and provide solutions to resolve these.

Even if you believe that there are no security concerns with your Drupal website, the ever-growing number and types of cyber security attacks mean that your site could be vulnerable without you realising.

Our cost-effective audit focuses primarily on Cyber Security and analyses your website in detail to provide recommendations to shore up your defences against potential exploits.

We'll also explore your site from the wider perspectives of performance, best-build practices, top-line SEO and legal compliances. 


Drupal Security Audits


The Drupal platform as a whole has a fantastic security record and is trusted by some of the largest organisations in the world, including The White House and GCHQ.

However, Drupal's security is only as good as the implementation and maintenance of each individual installation.

To ensure your website doesn't fall victim to security breaches, Adaptive will carry out a security health check of your Drupal installation and provide you with a full technical audit document outlining the current status of your site and any recommendations for technical or security improvements.

As with our performance reviews, our findings can either be presented as a recommendations document for your current developer/agency or we can action any required changes for you directly.
