Silence security distractions

SilverStripe Platform takes care of the many day to day security related maintenance burdens for your business's website and server applications. Operate your website knowing you're protected and the SilverStripe Platform support team has your back.

Ongoing security issues take you away from development

Web applications need to be continually maintained to remain secure. Each day dozens of security advisories are released that may affect the security of your server, databases, operating system and open source software. If you discover a vulnerability in your environments, you’ll need to quickly develop a patch to protect your business from downtime or more malicious outcomes.

This often means dropping everything else to ensure you can react quickly. On top of this, human error on modifications are common and can introduce further security issues to your environments. Even if your environment configuration is scripted and version controlled, access to configuration is commonly distributed across technical staff without well-defined access roles.

Features SecurityIssues

Stop reacting, start focusing

A reactive approach to security often results in dropping everything to deal with the latest “fire”. Pulling web teams off projects to fix security issues results in lost time, lost revenue and frustrates teams. This can disrupt projects and derail deadlines.

SilverStripe Platform takes a proactive approach to keep your web sites and applications one step ahead of malicious attacks. Access to system components is separated and enforced to ensure high security and auditability. You can focus on developing great applications while we take care of protecting them.
