MODX: a CMS for all online products

MODX gives you all the freedom to create a customized online product. This online product can either be a webshop, but a website, digital signage or intranet too. That’s how MODX gives you all the freedom you need to achieve your goals while offering the features you need to start with eCommerce. Besides that, you can add every software package you already use for eCommerce, so you can work with the webshop you like.

Magento: A CMS for eCommerce

When you want to start a webshop only, Magento might be the perfect CMS for you. Plugins and themes are specifically made for eCommerce and will improve the functionality of it. However eCommerce isn’t just a webshop anymore, you might want to create a blog, temporary landing pages, and other marketing products. Although these are possibilities in Magento, it’s not very flexible to design it the way you want.

MODX security


When starting with eCommerce, security should be priority number one. Since day one MODX has put security first. A team of the MODX Community checks all the code, detects vulnerabilities and solves these. So you can be sure of a secure MODX website.

Magento is focused on maintaining secure websites too. Just like MODX, Magento offers a Security Tool that finds vulnerabilities and it offers best practices to enhance the security of your website.
