_Frequently asked questions


Directus is particularly suitable for companies that need a flexible solution to manage their data and content. Directus has proven to be a headless CMS for companies that have a multi-channel presence and require cross-channel content management. In particular, the following companies benefit from Directus:

  • Large companies: Companies with complex data structures and extensive data management requirements can benefit from the flexibility and scalability of Directus. Directus provides an excellent basis for developing customised solutions that meet the specific requirements of large organisations. In addition, security features and the ability to meet compliance requirements such as GDPR make Directus particularly attractive for companies managing sensitive data.
  • Medium-sized businesses: As a mid-sized organisation, you can use Directus to efficiently manage and scale your digital platforms and applications. Directus offers a powerful solution for companies that want to centrally manage their data and content without sacrificing flexibility and adaptability. The headless approach enables seamless integration with various front-end technologies, making it easier for you as a mid-sized company to develop and customise your digital platforms and applications.
  • Startups: Startups can also use Directus as a basis to quickly and cost-effectively develop scalable solutions for their digital platforms. Directus offers an easy-to-use platform that allows you as a startup to focus on your core business while building a solid foundation for growth. Directus also provides you with proven built-in security features that allow you to meet compliance requirements with minimal effort - this is especially important if your startup manages sensitive data.

Yes, Directus has been designed to comply with the Datenschutz-Grundverordnung ("DSGVO") and offers settings that allow you to meet all requirements. This includes features for user authentication, access control, data encryption and the ability to perform data deletion. Directus enables your organisation to make the processing of personal data transparent, thus ensuring data protection in your applications and processes.  

In addition, it is crucial to understand that DSGVO compliance does not depend solely on the software, but in particular on its implementation and use. Organisations using Directus are responsible for ensuring that they take all necessary steps to comply with DSGVO regulations and protect personal data. This includes setting up data protection policies, training employees and conducting regular security checks.

Yes, as open source software, Directus offers the option to host the platform on-premise. This means that you can install and run Directus on your own servers or infrastructure instead of relying on cloud-based hosting services. This gives you more control over your data and allows you to configure the platform according to your own needs.

You can also run Directus via cloud services if you want to outsource the responsibility for infrastructure and hosting. The decision whether to host Directus on-premises or in the cloud depends on your individual preferences, security requirements and technical capabilities - as a Directus agency we will realise your ideas accordingly.

Here are six reasons why we love using Directus in our projects:

  1. Flexibility: Directus offers you a high degree of flexibility in data modelling and content management. This means you can create custom data structures and organise content according to your own needs.
  2. Headless approach: As a headless content management system, Directus separates your backend from your frontend. This allows seamless integration with different front-end technologies and platforms.
  3. API-first approach: Directus takes an API-first approach, allowing you to access, update and manage your content through a powerful programming interface. This makes it easy to integrate with external systems and services.
  4. Ease of use: Directus offers an intuitive interface that allows you to capture, edit and manage content efficiently. And there's no need for extensive training.
  5. Security: Directus offers very robust security features. These include access controls, user authentication and data encryption to ensure the security of your data.
  6. Scalability: Directus is highly scalable and can keep pace with your organisation's growing needs. This means you can easily expand and scale your digital platforms and applications over time.

The best way to access the data in Directus is to use the powerful API. You can retrieve, update, create and delete your data via the interface. You can also send HTTP requests to the API to access your data. Directus supports various data formats, such as JSON and GraphQL, for a variety of different requirements. In addition, Directus provides an intuitive user interface for human users to access and manage your data, especially if you don't want to program.

Directus takes the security of its platform very seriously. It has therefore implemented a number of security measures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data. This includes in particular these 6 areas:

  1. Access controls: Directus offers comprehensive access controls that allow your administrators to control access to data and functions based on the roles and permissions of your users.
  2. User authentication: Directus supports multiple authentication methods including username/password, OAuth and Single Sign-On (SSO). This ensures that only authorised users can access your platform.
  3. Data encryption: Directus offers encryption features to protect your data during transmission and storage and to ensure confidentiality.
  4. Security Updates: The Directus team regularly releases security updates and patches to fix potential security vulnerabilities and protect the platform from known threats.
  5. Security checks: Directus performs regular security checks. This is to identify and eliminate potential vulnerabilities. You can also rest assured that your platform meets the latest security standards.
  6. Community Support: The Directus community plays an increasingly important role in identifying and fixing security issues by providing feedback, contributions and fixes.

Directus is an open source data platform and headless CMS that allows you to efficiently manage all your digital content and data. It is specifically designed to provide flexibility and customisation for businesses with an API-first approach.
