Commitment to Privacy

Netlify is committed to privacy and helping users understand the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and to comply with its requirements. We’ve partnered with legal experts in Europe and the US to ensure that our products and contractual commitments are in line with GDPR regulations.

We’ll also continue monitoring best practices around GDPR and CCPA compliance and update our commitments if they change.

Reduced Attack Surface

Across our global Edge, 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.

Enterprise Compliant

Netlify undergoes a SOC 2 Type 2 audit and ISO 27001 certification annually, both of which are performed by an independent third-party auditor. Enterprise plan customers can request a full audit report for SOC 2 Type 2, and all customers can find a copy of our ISO Certificate here. Additionally, Netlify is PCI compliant for all SAQ-A requirements to safely process credit card transactions.

Reinforced User Boundaries

Enterprise Team Management empowers admins to add/remove users as needed to support organization-wide team management. Create, partition, and customize teams by role.


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 Provider

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

Verify team members with two-factor authentication

Protect access to your Netlify account by requiring a time-based passcode from an app like Authy or Google Authenticator before allowing access.

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.
