Platform Security

Last updated Jan 19, 2024

Developers using Convex are entrusting us with their most imporant assets—their users' data. Accordingly, security is of the utmost importance to our team.


  • All customer data (source code, databases, file storage, search indexes) are encrypted at rest using industry-standard 256-bit AES.
  • All data in transit, both interally and externally, are encrypted using standard algorithms like TLS and SSH.
  • Each customer database is isolated with random and unique credentials.
  • Convex utilizes audited access control management systems for granting production access to limited and necessary personnel.
  • All critical internal systems utilize MFA for account security.
  • No customer project data are publicly accessible unless explicitly exposed by customer-authored functions.
  • Convex employs automated vulerability scanning and intrusion detection within its infrastructure.
  • Our platform conducts third party penetration tests at least annually.
  • Third party systems Convex uses for platform services are audited at least annually for SOC 2 Type II compliance.
