Aquilent Announces New Drupal Platform for Federal Digital Communications

Business Wire

LAUREL, Md.--Aquilent, a recognized leading provider of Mobile, Web and Cloud solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, has introduced a new Drupal Platform as part of its overarching Digital Communications solution. The new platform includes an implementation of Drupal specifically tailored for the needs of the federal government incorporated into Aquilent’s holistic approach to digital communications.

With the new Drupal Platform in the Cloud, federal customers can leverage the latest in open-source technologies—with easy, secure access to Drupal in the cloud— as part of their digital communications strategy to further enhance their digital presence and increase citizen engagement.

The Drupal Platform in the Cloud includes Aquilent’s own custom-built Drupal infrastructure optimized for federal agencies, along with a series of workshops and Drupal support. The unique architecture gives customers a fully customizable Drupal Platform while allowing easy integration with other existing sites, portals and systems deployed in a newly created cloud environment or the customer’s existing cloud environment.

Aquilent’s new Drupal Platform is a safe, fast and secure solution that provides Aquilent’s customers with the benefits of Drupal while allowing them to remain focused on the content and message important to their audience – U.S. citizens. And Aquilent’s Drupal Platform in the Cloud has been designed specifically to meet FISMA and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) security requirements, making it the ideal solution for any federal agency.

“Aquilent has remained at the forefront in developing solutions that leverage the latest technologies and strategies to meet the specific needs of our federal customers,” said David Fout, CEO of Aquilent. “With the increased interest in open-source technologies and growth around Drupal, we saw the need to build a Drupal Platform that combines the power of Drupal with the security our federal customers require to better serve citizens.”

As part of the Drupal Platform, customers can take advantage of Aquilent workshops designed to help identify areas for improvement – from content and functionality to user experience to security and implementation. From these workshops, customers will gain a better understanding of how to successfully leverage Drupal for their site with a roadmap and plan for enabling faster ramp-up and deployment. Cloud-hosting options including Amazon Web Services (AWS), and flexible support packages are designed to meet the specific needs of the federal customer, including the ability to provide cleared or badged personnel in order to successfully achieve a federal Authority to Operate (ATO), and to support sites with secure requirements.

With the launch of the new Drupal Platform in the Cloud, Aquilent has created the ideal Drupal Platform for federal agencies – a secure, fast and flexible solution for their digital communication needs. For more information on Aquilent’s Drupal Platform in the Cloud, email or call 301.939.1000.
