Tag1 Consulting is proud to announce that it has been selected by the Drupal Association and Drupal Security Team as an approved member of the Drupal 7 Extended Support (D7ES) Program. Drupal 7 end-of-life is November 2022, and the Drupal security team is partnering with a few select vendors with the demonstrated expertise to provide security and maintenance support to ensure that orgs using D7 can continue to run it, well into the future.

Tag1 Consulting is one of the all time leading contributors to Drupal, and one of only two companies currently offering Drupal 6 Extended Support. We have a proven track record, and over 5 years of experience enabling orgs to maximize the lifespan and return on investment in Drupal - we helped pioneer the model for Drupal Extended Support.

When Drupal 7 reaches its end of life, the community will no longer be providing updates, security fixes, or enhancements. Tag1 helps Drupal 7 and Drupal 6 websites stay up to date with its Tag1 Quo subscription product and service offering. Tag1 Quo is unique in providing you with a dashboard, enabling you to see exactly what security and maintenance issues need work, from urgent down to minor updates. From one website to thousands, you can see the status of your systems at a glance. With a Tag1 Quo subscription, you can be sure that updates to your Drupal 7 website are tested and secure.

You can get Tag1 Quo up and running in as little as 5 minutes. All it takes is activating your subscription and installing the Tag1 Quo Drupal module on your website. Tag1 Quo monitors your site, and alerts you to any new security or module updates found or fixed by D7ES providers that apply specifically to your code base. The standard, self-service Tag1 Quo subscription notifies you, with direct links to the patches so that you and your teams can ensure your D7 sites stay secure and up to date after official support ends. With Enterprise Tag1 Quo, you can rely on Tag1’s experts to help you install these updates, or to do the work for you.

D7 is a great platform that meets the needs of many organizations. You should only upgrade if there is a business reason to do so, not because you are being forced to because free community support is ending. With Tag1 Quo, you can inexpensively continue to securely run and build on top of Drupal 7, and take the time to decide if, and exactly when you want to migrate, and what you’re going to migrate to.

Tag1 is committed to providing D7 support for a minimum of 3 years after EOL. Based on the continued demand for Drupal 6 extended support, D7ES will likely be provided through at least 2027. If you choose to continue to run websites on Drupal 7, Tag1 is here to help you navigate through the Drupal end of life with our extended support program. If you’re thinking about upgrading to Drupal 9, Tag1 can help you find the best way forward.

If you’re a Drupal hosting provider, services company, or digital agency, you can provide Drupal 7 Extended Support to your customers with Tag1 Quo Agency edition. With support for custom domain names, and the ability to white-label the interface and dashboard, Tag1 Quo Agency keeps you in control of your customer relationships. It enables you to provide added value to your clients and the assurance they need to continue to use and build on D7 after EOL, helping you retain your customers by ensuring their websites stay secure. In addition to the automated tooling, partnering with Tag1 gives you access to our team of Drupal experts authorized to provide this service. Our team is here, behind the scenes, to help you with issues that need to be resolved, from core bugs to custom code and ensure your, and your client’s success.
