leading PHP-based framework for bespoke software development

Symfony is a PHP framework, based on the Model-View-Contoller (MVC) paradigm, designed to help building enterprise level web applications. It is an open source product aiming to provide means for faster creation of web applications by minimising repetitive tasks, and ensuring easier maintenance.

Just like some other popular open source solutions, Symfony was originally intended to be used as a proprietary system to serve its creator’s - the interactive agency SensioLabs – customers. It was, however, made available for public usage in 2005.

Today, Symfony is one of the leading PHP-based open source frameworks used by tens of thousands of web applications globally in various industries, while its components are used by many open source PHP projects worldwide, such as phpBB, EZ Publish and Drupal, to build their applications.

Symfony is actively maintained, developed and documented by large community of developers, including the original creator SensioLabs.

Why Choose Symfony

With the help of FrontIT you would be able leverage the benefits provided by Symfony framework:


In the world of “world-wide-wait” the responsiveness of your website can be a determining factor for either gaining additional customer, or loosing it. Symfony was, from the very start, designed with a strong focus on performance and effective use of computing resources, and significantly outperforms competing PHP frameworks, Symfony fares well against other feature-rich frameworks, but lighter alternatives like Silex are unsurprisingly faster.


There’s hardly a more important topic than the security of sensitive data in the online environment – be it information about customers, or business proprietary information. Symfony provides a set of robust security features and advanced algorithms, covering all the common requirements, such as authentication and authorisation, loading users, data protection, secure password storage, and so on.


No matter the scope of the project or what your business needs, Symfony will be able to scale and adapt to your needs – an ability that is built-in into the framework by design, and supported further by the entire ecosystem and open source MIT license business model.


From the core of the Symfony, to the components of various size and complexity, everything with the framework is considered as a “plug-in” that provides some particular additional functionality. These separate building blocks communicate with each other via system’s interface contracts and therefore can be easily added, configured, shared and reused, as needed, without causing a complete rework or reconfiguration of the solution.

The Community

Your investment into Symfony is made safe thanks to a huge community of seasoned professionals developing, extending, and supporting the framework. Major versions of Symfony are also formally supported for 3 years by the original creator, SensioLabs.
