User Interface Security

This topic describes security considerations related to unauthorized access to the editing and administration user interfaces of Optimizely Content Cloud (CMS) when running the Optimizely Digital Experience Platform (DXP).

Considerations

Optimizely provides easy access for multiple editors to work in a collaborative manner with content across sites, using devices of their choice. This may raise concerns about unauthorized access to the editing and administration interfaces of Optimizely CMS.

Security and privacy are built into the Optimizely platform and the Azure cloud services that is based on the Optimizely DXP. Any feature that Optimizely develops must meet the highest quality standards, including security measures. See Security.

Consider the following  additional precautions to prevent unauthorized access:

  • Ensure that the connection is secure; use an SSL server test tool to verify.
  • Use federated authorization to a trusted authority to secure editor identities.
  • Use a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect against threats such as DDOS.
  • Run penetration tests regularly, using a web security scanning tool.
