    Next to the Drupal default menus, Sector ships with additional preconfigured menus and menu blocks to make it as easy as possible to get started.

    For added security and easy to configure, granular password policies, the Sector Distribution includes the Drupal Password Policy module. This includes a preconfigured password policy:
