Compliance & Certifications

Enonic is ISO 27001:2022 certified. Our information security policy is thus not only directed against malicious attacks, but also towards responsible data management.

We are annually audited by a certified external auditor, whom among other things verifies our compliance with the 93 InfoSec controls in the standard.

Finally, Enonic is also ISO 9001:2015 certified. This standard specifies requirements for a quality management system within an organization.

A statement of applicability is available per request to customers.


Enonic is fully GDPR compliant. Have a look at our privacy policy, and Data Processing and Security Terms for Enonic Cloud for more details.

As an extra level of assurance, Enonic has a Data Privacy Officer to oversee privacy matters and handle privacy requests.

How We Protect Your Data

When using Enonic Cloud, we deploy a number of measures to protect your data. We effectively manage areas such as: privileged access management, secrets management, network security, operational procedures, monitoring, and incident management.

Enonic treats data security with the highest degree of confidentiality and integrity, always aiming to protect your data against unauthorized access.

HTTPS is enabled by default to protect data in transit. We also perform regular OWASP penetration testing via external white hat agencies.

How We Keep Services Reliable

Enonic Cloud is built to satisfy enterprise level requirements in availability and scalability. We achieve resilience by the following means:

Global CDN and DDoS protection

Our CDN is delivered in cooperation with our trusted partner Fastly. The CDN ensures resilience by caching assets, effectively offloading the origin servers. With 70+ locations, smart routing and caching, the CDN can also significantly reduce latency.

The DDoS and security filters protect websites, applications, and entire networks while ensuring the performance of legitimate traffic is not compromised.


Our modern platform architecture and cloud services can handle extreme traffic and massive data sets, without sacrificing performance.


We provide clustered instances with full data replication, in order to minimize downtime and to improve availability for your visitors, customers and employees.


Our cloud customers always get dedicated platform instances—effectively isolating and minimizing the impact of security incidents. Enterprise customers may also opt for dedicated infrastructure.

Backup and disaster recovery

Our cloud supports continuous snapshotting and backups both onsite and offsite, giving you belts and buckles in protecting the integrity of your data.

How We Keep Our Software Secure

Our software is the foundation of both our open source and commercial software offerings, as well as our cloud services.


As an open source company, we take pride in our transparency culture. We do not rely on security through obscurity. Our code is thus open for scrutiny. Visit us on GitHub.

Process and automation

Our defined development process is based on agile principles. Peer code reviews, feature branching, test automation, static code analysis, retrospectives, and automated dependency updates are just parts of this.

Test and release

We use semantic versioning indicating major, feature, and fix releases for simplicity and ease of use. With approximately 6,000 automated unit and integration tests, we are able to change our code frequently and release new versions with high quality.

Vulnerability handling

Our battle-hardened runtime is built on the Java Virtual Machine for high performance and optimal security. In case of vulnerabilities, we have standard procedures to notify, patch, and roll out fixes in a safe and timely manner.

Dog feeding

Not only do we build software that is used by others, we also build our own services and websites on the same platform. New versions of our platform are always deployed on our own servers before being shipped to customers.

How You Can Contribute to Protect Your Data

You are in charge of how your data is accessed and treated. 

Pluggable authentication

Use pluggable authentication to control access to your instances. Use our standard integrations with OpenID Connect and other popular identity providers and frameworks, or build your own. Visit our app store for more details.

Permissions and access management

Define fine-grained access management using roles, groups, and permissions, or implement custom security rules into your applications as desired. 


We fully support modern development environments such as Continuous Delivery pipelines, and automated testing—configurable to meet your requirements.


Our system standard audit log records all relevant changes, and can also be used by your own applications if needed. Subscribing customers are also entitled to audit our entire company at will.
