Advanced, Secure and Robust

Drupal originated from a former student project. Over time, a large community around the free open-source Content Management System (CMS) had formed and today Drupal has become globally, one of the most widely used CMS solutions.

The basic installation features a streamlined software core that provides basic functionality for creating and maintaining a website. Thanks to its modular design, this initially small range of functions can be expanded and customized as required by the installation of fundamentally free plug-ins.

Drupal offers an efficient and effectively controllable solution, especially for use in enterprise projects, due to its structure and the large number of extensions available.
