CakePHP comes with built-in tools for input validation, CSRF protection, Form tampering protection, SQL injection prevention, and XSS prevention, helping you keep your application safe & secure. CakePHP is licensed under the MIT license which makes it perfect for use in commercial applications. CakePHP is an open-source web framework. It follows the model–view–controller (MVC) approach and is written in PHP, modeled after the concepts of Ruby on Rails, and distributed under the MIT License. CakePHP uses well-known software engineering concepts and software design patterns, such as convention over configuration, model–view–controller, active record, association data mapping, and front controller. As the framework is based on PHP, finding developers is relatively easy, and a lot less costly than other commercial solutions. Installing CakePHP can be done in just minutes via direct download, or using git, PEAR or Composer, and only requires some minimal configuration and file permissions. It even has a flexible directory structure for custom environments.
