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.
Our Drupal Security includes inspection and analysis of...
Drupal core and module versions, highlighting any essential security updates required
Drupal codebase integrity to check if any core or contributed modules have been amended (potentially causing problems when updating these)
File/directory permissions throughout the Drupal installation to ensure all are set to secure levels
High-level Penetration Testing across the whole site to check for any exposure to common exploit/attack vectors
Protection against site exploitation from cross-site scripting or injection
User settings, roles and permissions along with password policies and an audit of any user accounts of concern within the site
Any anti-spam measures in place on any exposed forms to ensure these sufficiently protect the site
Domain Name/DNS Health Check
Multiple additional Drupal Security checks
