Securing Your Drupal Website: Essential Best Practices


Borislav Tonev reports that Drupal, while not the most widely used CMS—only about 1.5% of websites use it—is preferred among high-traffic websites. The blog post justifies this, with Drupal's usage rising to 6.2% among the top 10,000 sites, according to BuiltWith. This suggests that Drupal is considered a secure and robust platform for large-scale projects, including notable websites like Tesla and government offices. 

Despite its inherent security features, ensuring the protection of a Drupal website requires following best practices such as regular updates, implementing strong password policies, securing the authentication mechanism, and maintaining a secure hosting environment. Important measures include setting correct file permissions, using SSL certificates, and having a reliable backup strategy.
