Drupal Website Security And Protection

As a popular content management system (CMS), Drupal can leave websites vulnerable to cyber attacks. Whether it’s an outdated theme or module, it’s important for website owners to be aware of potential vulnerabilities and protect against them. Automatically protect your Drupal website from hackers with SiteLock.

Have Drupal Questions?

How can I automate Drupal security updates?

We make this easy, and once you have connected your Drupal site to SiteLock, we’ll automatically deploy security updates to your Drupal site. This is especially important if you are not running the latest version of Drupal or not spending each week tending to Drupal updates.

Does SiteLock help build trust with my Drupal website visitors?

The most important way we build trust is by keeping you updated and free from malware, but you can also let your visitors know using our SiteLock Trust Seal. The seal is a small badge on your Drupal site that indicates it is free from malware and actively scanned.

Can just SSL protect my Drupal site from all of the threats?

You do need SSL, but it provides encryption and identity verification for your Drupal site. SSL isn’t able to protect Drupal from other threats such as malware and XSS, or prevent attacks on out-of-date software.

What is an SSL Certificate, and do I need one for my Drupal site?

An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that provides website authentication and an encrypted connection. If you have a mail web server or any other internet-facing service that has sensitive data in it, then you will need one.

Can SiteLock provide my Drupal site backup & restore?

Yes. SiteLock provides Drupal backup & restore and covers both your files and databases. Need to turn back time and restore your Drupal site from 13 days ago? No problem, SiteLock backups will easily restore your entire Drupal site or just a few files.

What can make my Drupal site redirect to another site?

If it’s not something you have planned, you could be infected with Malware or perhaps a SQL injection. In just a few minutes, SiteLock can help detect if the problem is malicious or not.
