Drupal 8’s Security and Reliability Attract Nasdaq

Nasdaq Corporate Solutions announced back in October 2016 that it would be using Drupal 8 as the basis for its next generation of Investor Relations (IR) websites, starting early 2017. This is a huge acknowledgement of Drupal 8’s security and reliability as a platform for companies to present investor options and process solutions through their IR websites.

What’s the Big Deal?

The Nasdaq Stock Market is one of the world’s largest stock exchanges by market capitalization, second only to the New York Stock Exchange. Over three thousand companies, including 63% of the Fortune 500 companies, use Nasdaq Corporate Solutions for their IR websites. These include Apple, Pfizer, Amazon, Google, Starbucks and ExxonMobil.

An IR website is a platform for companies to communicate and share sensitive information with shareholders, investors, investment analysts and the media. This includes financial results, press releases, notice of shareholder meetings, annual reports and corporate governance and social responsibility issues.

Communication with stakeholders and interested parties needs to be effective. Impart information about your company that enables a well-informed investment decision. It’s imperative that sensitive information be kept secure, and access to up-to-date information is fast and reliable.

All IR websites have to comply with strict standards to safeguard investor information. Nasdaq’s employment of Drupal 8 is a tremendous testament to its proven technology and reliability in this regard.

Drupal 8’s Outstanding Features

Investor Relations websites can leverage Drupal 8’s many outstanding features, including:

  • Security. Drupal 8 offers extremely tight control over site security and access management. Authentication and file transfer is much more secure than previous versions.
  • High quality content presentation. Drupal provides the tools to integrate high quality content, including analytics, from Nasdaq Investor Relations Insights.
  • Mobile responsiveness. With the development of Drupal 8, the company focused on a mobile-first approach. Mobile access is vital in today’s fast paced world and Drupal’s responsive design ensures optimal viewing across all devices.
  • Content management. Drupal is a powerful CMS that allows you to use many content types, including text, video, audio and images. It offers the flexibility to harness add-ons like content creation and editing tools, modules and themes.
  • Traffic management. Drupal is the best of all CMS platforms when it comes to handling high traffic volumes, without compromising speed of access to information.

How is Drupal 8 Relevant For Your Company?

This powerful CMS has the versatility and flexibility to be used by any company, big or small. If you are considering a new website or a redesign or a Drupal 8 migrationcontact a Drupal expert to custom build it for you.
