Who is Netlify for?

The Netlify composable platform goes beyond developer productivity and is designed for the needs of architects, developers, security and compliance admins, cross-functional release partners, content authors, copywriters, as well as marketing and documentation teams.

Enterprises trust Netlify to help them ship to production faster, securely manage different site versions, and help content authors drive results faster with a highly customizable visual editor for publishing site content and layout changes.
