Building a safer web for everyone: Netlify’s commitment to security

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the web is more than just a platform; it's a community where businesses, creators, and users converge to share ideas, innovate, and grow. At Netlify, we are deeply committed to fostering this community by ensuring that it remains a safe and secure space for everyone. Our mission extends beyond providing a powerful platform for web development; it encompasses our dedication to protecting the web from fraud, abuse, and security threats.

Why security matters at Netlify

The internet is a dynamic and vibrant ecosystem, but it is not without its challenges. From cyberattacks to fraudulent activities, the threats facing online platforms are numerous and evolving. At Netlify, we believe that building a safer web is not just a necessity but a responsibility. Our commitment to security is rooted in the understanding that a secure web is fundamental to the trust and confidence of our users.

Fraud and abuse controls: Our first line of defense

One of the key pillars of our security strategy is our robust fraud and abuse controls. These measures are designed to detect and prevent malicious activities before they can impact our users. By leveraging advanced algorithms and continuous monitoring, we can swiftly identify and mitigate potential threats, ensuring that our platform remains a safe environment for all.

Our fraud and abuse controls are proactive, not reactive. This means that we are constantly improving and adapting our security measures to stay ahead of emerging threats. This proactive approach not only protects our users but also enhances the overall integrity of the web.

Taking action for the greater good

There may be instances where we need to take down a customer's site to protect the broader community. While these decisions are never made lightly, they are sometimes necessary to prevent the spread of harmful content or activities. By taking decisive action, we uphold our commitment to maintaining a safe and trustworthy web for everyone.

When we do take down a site, it is done with transparency and communication. Our team works closely with affected customers to explain the reasons behind the action and to provide guidance on how to resolve the issue. Our goal is not to penalize, but to collaborate with our users to create a more secure web.

Netlify’s ongoing commitment to security

Our efforts to protect the web are ongoing and multifaceted. We invest in cutting-edge security technologies, continuously update our policies and practices, and educate our users on best practices for online safety. By fostering a culture of security, we empower our community to contribute to a safer web.

At Netlify, we are proud of the role we play in building a secure online environment. Our commitment to security is unwavering, and we will continue to innovate and adapt to meet the challenges of the digital world. Together, we can create a web that is safe, secure, and welcoming for everyone.
