Hasura Cloud Security

Enterprise grade security in a couple of clicks.


Our mission

Hasura Cloud is architected to help companies follow the three tenets of Information Security: confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

Hasura Cloud undergoes three layers of security scrutiny. As part of our certification process, we undergo routine testing from external agencies to ensure industry standards are maintained. As an open-source software, our internals are exposed for regular scrutiny from our community to ensure components stay current.

To incentivize the community for an extra layer of scrutiny, we also offer a path for responsible disclosure.

Security requires robust authentication and authorization

Hasura Cloud provides enterprise grade authorization that can integrate with your authentication provider of choice.

Hasura Cloud provides stateless authorization with JWT controls either through authorization headers, cookies, or webhooks. Being built on Postgres, session based control can always be configured but there are a number of good reasons to prefer stateless authentication.

Security is more than just authentication and authorization

Inforsec tenet one: Confidentiality
Inforsec tenet one:


Allow Lists
Define a list of queries and mutations that are approved and execution will be limited to that list. With allow lists, you can limit the queries your users are able to execute.

Optional Introspection
Disable schema introspection to add an extra layer of obscurity and data structure opaqueness for unauthorized individuals.

Security Event Logging
Hasura Cloud maintains meticulous logs for security events and does threat-assessment pattern mapping to look for anomalies.

Access Controls
Provide fine-tuned access controls to ensure the person requesting data is only able to fetch/mutate content they’ve been given permission to access.

Single Tenant Mode, VPC Peering
Hasura Cloud enables a wide range of hosting options covering all possible use-cases, including a hosted, single-tenant mode.
Inforsec tenet two: Integrity
Inforsec tenet two:


Migration API
The Hasura Cloud migration API ensures that all changes to the Hasura Cloud metadata are observable, recoverable, and enforce eventual consistency.

RBAC Controls
User accounts can be highly scoped based on need-to-access and need-to-know params, ensuring users do not manipulate content or settings outside of their area of responsibility. This includes the ability to limit to analytics only account access, read-only mode, and more.

SSO Access
Hasura Cloud supports modern SSO access patterns, enabling centralized user management.

Multi-Layer Input Validation
It’s no surprise that SQL injection attacks continue to be attack-vector number one for those meaning harm. Hasura Cloud has vigilant processes in places to mitigate this.
Inforsec tenet three: Availability
Inforsec tenet three:


Rate Limiting
Hasura Cloud can limit access to any of our managed clusters to ensure balanced and consistent availability for all our customers.

DDOS Monitoring
Hasura Cloud actively monitors for abnormal traffic spikes and has tools in place to mitigate the effects of bad actors.

Single Tenant Mode, VPC
Higher availability by reduction of noisy-neighbour effects.

Cloud Scale
Hasura Cloud is optimized for growth and is able to scale with the most demanding of customers.
