Government Websites Don’t Want To Be Hacked. That’s Why They’re Built on Drupal


Governments Trust Drupal

Drupal is used by 24% of all government websites worldwide and is used by more than 150 countries, including the government websites of Brazil, France and Australia.

In the US, several top government agencies rely on a Drupal content management system (CMS). The list of users below includes some of the most powerful and important sites in the country, including The White House and Homeland Security.

Why Drupal?

There are many reasons why governments around the world trust Drupal, but the most important are cost, reliability, customization, scalability and security.


Because governments often operate on tight budgets, the Drupal CMS is attractive because it is so affordable. Drupal is a PHP-based, open-source content management system. It is available to the public free of charge and has no expensive licensing fees.


Drupal is fully mature and, as a result, it is known for its reliability. It is a mature platform and is user-friendly out of the box; it’s basically plug and play.  Drupal is consistently ranked as one of the most popular open source software platforms because of its stability, and a stable high-performing website leads to higher search engine rankings and conversions.


Drupal offers a wide variety of stable modules that can quickly deploy any feature.

There are over 16,000 add-on modules for Drupal, making it a modular and extremely extensible platform with unmatched flexibility. It is configurable and provides solutions for virtually every type of content, and seamlessly integrates with existing data repositories and internal publishing tools. The Drupal multisite feature lets you run multiple websites from a single installation.


The Drupal platform’s scalability makes it a popular choice for both small municipalities and local government sites to some of the highest volume sites in the US government and the private sector. The Drupal CMS is made to support large traffic. It is enterprise-class because of its scalability, flexibility, reliability, manageability, security, interoperability, and the availability of resources. Developers can easily integrate with other applications: SAP, phpBB, etc.


Government websites can’t afford to be hacked and that’s why they rely on Drupal. Compared to WordPress, the world’s most popular CMS, Drupal is more secure: “it has lower vulnerability percentage and lower incidence rates….Drupal 8 is the most secure, the least hacked and least infected CMS.”

The Drupal Community has its own Security Team headed by Dries Buytaert, chairman and chief technology officer of Acquia and the creator of Drupal. Releases are covered by the Drupal security advisory policy and the Drupal security team of 40 security experts from several different countries, across three continents.

Whenever a vulnerability is identified, it is reported to the Drupal security team for  review and evaluation. If the threat is considered valid, the maintainer is notified and security advisories are sent out immediately via social media.

In addition, Drupal offers controlled access with login security, a strong password policy (that some say is impossible to decrypt) and two-factor authentication.
