In the digital age, where content is king, the security of content management systems (CMS) is paramount. For content creators, content managers, marketers, and the general public, understanding the importance of product security in the headless CMS market is crucial. This article sheds light on why product security matters and how Kontent.ai ensures the safety and integrity of your digital content.

Why secure supplier matters?

The rise of software supply chain data breaches, such as the infamous SolarwindsAsus, and GitHub incidents, has highlighted the vulnerabilities in the digital supply chain. These breaches not only disrupt operations but also erode customer trust. Moreover, with the growing regulatory compliance requirements, like the Cyber Resilience Act in the EU and recommendations from CISA in the US, it’s clear that security is not just a preference but a necessity.

Customers entrust their sensitive data to their CMS suppliers, expecting their information to be handled with the utmost care and protection. This trust is the foundation of the customer-supplier relationship in the CMS market.

Security assurance of Kontent.ai

At Kontent.ai, we understand that Product Security Assurance is multifaceted, and trust must be nurtured over time. Our risk-based approach adheres to secure by default and privacy by default principles, ensuring that our customers’ data is protected from the outset.

SOC 2 Type 2 Report and ISO/IEC Certifications

We provide a SOC 2 Type 2 Report to all prospective and existing customers, encompassing all aspects of product development and operation within the scope of the audit. This demonstrates our commitment to maintaining high-security standards. Additionally, Kontent.ai is ISO/IEC 27001 and 27017 certified and has earned the CSA STAR designation, offering a Cloud Assessment Initiative Questionnaire (CAIQ) to customers along with a shared responsibility model.

Transparency and SBOM

Transparency is key to building trust. Kontent.ai offers a software bill of materials (SBOM) upon request to all customers, allowing them to understand the components that make up our product. Customers are encouraged to contact the Security Team via security@kontent.ai if they want to subscribe. 

Vulnerability assessments and collaboration

Regular vulnerability assessments and penetration tests are part of our security protocol, with reports available to customers under a valid NDA. We also encourage collaboration with security researchers and bug hunters through our Vulnerability Disclosure Policy, fostering a community-driven approach to security.

How do we grow product security even further

Kontent.ai is not complacent when it comes to security. We benchmark ourselves against various maturity models, including NIST CSF, OWASP SAMM, and CIS standards. Our approach to artificial intelligence is responsible and secure, taking into account capAI and NIST AI RMF frameworks ensuring that our application and user interfaces are secure by default.

In our infrastructure, we’ve implemented a zero-trust approach to prevent lateral movement by attackers. Security is woven into every step of our software development lifecycle, and we continuously strive to elevate the security of our code, product, and infrastructure through initiatives like the Security Champions Programengaging training, and hackathons.

Summary

Product security is not just a feature—it’s a fundamental aspect of any headless CMS. Kontent.ai's ongoing commitment to security is reviewed by external experts, with reports available to all current customers free of charge (under NDA). Our variety of actions and initiatives ensure that we not only meet but exceed the security expectations of our product offering.

By choosing Kontent.ai, you’re not just selecting a CMS—you’re investing in a secure future for your digital content. Explore our Trust Center and see how we can help you achieve peace of mind in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
