Security at Netlify

We’re trusted by over 500,000 companies and developers to run secure, performant sites and applications

A global platform that is secure by design

Reduced attack surface

Across our global ADN, content deployed to the edge nodes is fully prerendered and static, offering no active processes or surface area for attack.

Application code runs on Netlify's build infrastructure (prior to deployment) and when using cloud functions (in production). Both environments are ephemeral, spinning up new, temporary containers just long enough to execute each task. That means there are no idle environments to attempt to exploit, and limited exposure to public networks.


Netlify uses Let's Encrypt to provide free HTTPS certificates for every domain deployed. You can also bring and install your own certs.

Vetted, top-tier cloud providers

Netlify deploys only to major cloud providers who regularly undergo extensive security audits and certifications.

Secure your development

From audit logs to granular permissions, Netlify puts you in control of your development process.

Integrate Netlify into your organization with Single Sign-on

Teams can sign in to the Netlify UI with G Suite, Okta, OneLogin, Ping Identity, or most identity providers that support SAML 2.0.

For Enterprise teams, Netlify supports integrating an existing SSO provider to authenticate users. Contact sales for more information.

Control who can do what

Users added to your Netlify account can be given access to all sites within the team, or only specific sites. You can restrict who can create sites, edit site settings, add or remove team members, manage billing information and more.

Audit every action

Netlify audit logs provide transparency into the different actions taken by team members on various team and site settings.

Audit logs provide an overview and historical log of nearly every action that can be taken by your team members.

Secure your application

Netlify offers several powerful tools to easily add access controls to your site or application.

Manage signups, logins, password recovery, and more — all without rolling your own authentication service.

Register and authenticate visitors to your site so you can gate content, enable CMS functionality, make authenticated calls to outside services, and more. Securely integrate with any service that understands JSON Web Tokens.
