The Drop Guard Story

Let’s start with Drop Guard’s birthplace: Our company Bright Solutions GmbH in Darmstadt, Germany, develops individual web applications and mobile apps for more than nine years focusing on supporting the efficiency and innovation capabilities of our client’s business. The need to create Drop Guard was a direct result of our growth and the increased number of Drupal support projects.  We found our growth become limited as every software update (which is the basis for every successful Drupal project) had to be done manually.

​In order to fulfill our service level agreements, every release of a new update had to be recognized and realized just in time - it was just pathetic! We started to develop a tool which assumed this annoying process in a much more reliable way than we could achieve. 

​This was the birth of our new team member Drop Guard. In 2014, “Drupalgeddon” confirmed our opinion, that our reliable update automation service is needful for a much larger community. Great times at DrupalCons, DrupalCamps, and other MeetUps followed, Drop Guard won more and more friends and supporters. And this was just the beginning of the story. We started a great mission, and we’re looking forward to new ways to improve our vision!
