Basically using artisan Laravel developers can develop a skeleton code along with a database structure so database can be managed smoothly and quickly. Another benefit of Artisan(Extended Symfony console) is creation of commands to do tasks easily as well as do the unit tests of the web application.

Website Security & Speed

Unlike WordPress, Laravel ensures high end security of the website. Only authorised users can access the data owing to its default AES-256 encryption on passwords. The password is never stored in database in form of plain text due to use of salted and hashed password rather Bcrypt hashing algo is implemented to encrypt the password.

Laravel is very serious on security front as it use SQL statements that eliminates any scene of SQL injection attack completely.

These libraries are easy to implement and have features like CSRF protection, Bcrypt hashing, encryption, checking active users and password reset.
