Over the years we've constantly worked on Report URI to improve it with the goal of helping more and more websites improve their security. Today, I'm really happy to announce that we're partnering with Joomla! as their official Reporting Partner to help further that goal for millions of websites.
Joomla! is one of the world's most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) and today we're announcing our partnership with them as official Reporting Partner. You can read more details in the official announcement on the Joomla! site.
Report URI and Joomla are pleased to announce a new partnership where Joomla will be using the industry leading solution to continuously monitor the multitude of joomla.org websites, analyze the results and improve security for website visitors. For Report URI this partnership means helping build a more secure open internet by serving one of the world’s most prominent open source organizations and further helping to enhance the security of open source projects.
It's really awesome to see an organisation in such a prominent position as Joomla! take such bold steps forward in providing a secure browsing experience for their users. Our partnership isn't just about providing reporting services to the huge range of Joomla! sites, but also about expanding and improving the range of Security Headers in use on their sites.
Joomla’s HTTP Security Headers journey for the joomla.org network of sites started back in March 2018 and since then we have constantly improved that to now set most of the available headers which result in an A grade on SecurityHeaders.com for joomla.org. A key part of a successful implementation is a reporting endpoint and back in 2018 we built our own solution, but over the time we realized that this solution does not scale and there are so many invalid reports that have to be ignored – so we disabled the reporting endpoint after the successful implementation and an initial test run. Today we are really excited to start enabling reporting via the Report URI service across our sites and fill that gap so we can constantly monitor and collect not just the Content Security Policy reports, but also all sorts of other reports in one central place.

We hope that the millions of sites running Joomla! can see the benefits that using Security Headers can bring and know that Report URI is here to make that process as easy as possible. If you'd like to check how your site is currently using Security Headers then head over and do a free scan at SecurityHeaders.com to get started.
We’re thrilled to be supporting Joomla on their journey to creating a more secure browsing experience for their visitors. Reporting can often be difficult and result in large volumes of unexpected traffic but our scale and filtering capabilities allow us to take the pain out of receiving these reports. It’s great to see more organisations deploying modern security mechanisms like Content Security Policy and we’d encourage other websites to follow in Joomla’s footsteps.
