Join Ben Jeavons, Cash William and David Stoline for an up-to-date review of security best practices in Drupal. Drupal is a powerful tool but it can be built, configured, and managed insecurely, far too easily. You can use three basic principles to guide your efforts around securing your site and processes:

  1. Don’t trust user input
  2. Stay up-to-date
  3. Defense in depth

Security is a process, not a one-time action, so it is important to have a practical plan and guiding philosophy that will ensure you cover your bases

Today’s digital marketers and site owners are being asked to do more with less to engage customers, segment their audiences, and improve conversion rates across all their digital properties.

We understand that data rules, but manually mining and interpreting data can be frustrating (read: near impossible!) to scale.

The nature of a mission-critical website is that it cannot fail. Public and private organizations of all sizes depend on their site being up in order to meet their goals – sales, information dissemination, or otherwise. However, some large organizations haven’t managed to implement the right approach that will keep their site up during critical times.

Acquia Cloud Site Factory provides a better way to create and manage Drupal multisite deployments. You can use it to rapidly build mobile-ready brand, campaign, and franchise websites using powerful multisite tools on top of the open source Acquia Cloud platform.

The site building capabilities are based on a customized distribution of Drupal. It includes popular modules, user interface improvements, and a ThemeBuilder. The Site Factory dashboard allows you to group and manage all of your sites, and control permissions within groups.
