The Brief

We worked with Macmillan education on a consultancy basis. We performed a site health check, this involved checking the website and server for a number of potential issues, including:

  •     Out of date and bug fixes to modules installed and in use.
  •     Drupal Core security status.
  •     Analysis of installed module code for common security vulnerabilities.
  •     Review of your theme build and files to identify bad practices.
  •     Database overheads and poor performing queries.
  •     Scheduled task processing.

Once the health check was completed and the report produced we mediated with their offshore development team, providing them with the information and knowledge as to how they can write secure, maintainable code.
