Whether you’re building a site or a web application, speed is incredibly important. With 40% of people abandoning a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load, time really is of the essence. Laravel supports integration with various popular cache backends like Redis and Memchached that can help bring down that all-important load time. For larger or more data-heavy sites and applications, there are more configuration and integration options to make sure the loading time is as low as possible.
Open source is often mistakenly thought to be insecure because of the fact it’s ‘open’ for anyone to use. In fact, with a thoroughly vetted and guarded codebase, Laravel is one of the most secure frameworks out there.
It’s also been designed to protect your site or application from the most common and critical vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site request forgery, cross-site scripting. By being built into the framework, the chance of these vulnerabilities being missed by a developer is next to nothing.
Laravel also has in-built authentication capabilities and makes it easy to organize authorization logic.
Testing is an essential part of the development process to make sure your site or application will work as expected when it’s gone live. Proper testing can be incredibly time consuming and, when done manually, can drive up the cost of a web project. Laravel supports automated testing, which means we can let the developers get on with the actual development and keep costs down.
