Network Storage Solutions for Comprehensive Security Protection
Secure access to a broader array of services and applications while guarding against increasingly sophisticated threats.
How does Synology protect your NAS
Businesses are challenged to offer secure access to a broader array of services and applications while guarding against increasingly sophisticated threats. Synology brings enhanced and comprehensive security solutions, allowing your NAS to adapt more quickly to evolving technology, business needs, and sophisticated threats.
CVE Numbering Authority
Synology is authorised as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA) by The MITRE Corporation, a world-leading security institute. Entitled to assign CVE IDs to vulnerabilities affecting our own products, we are committed to continually advancing our cyber security solutions.
Our participation in CNAs shows our position as a leading enterprise in the field of information security.
CVE ID assignment
We are given the privilege to assign CVE IDs to vulnerabilities affecting our own products.
The authorization enables us to control the processes of vulnerability disclosure and bug fixing.
We constantly monitor potential external threats and instantly respond to security issues.
Fast security incident response
Security has always been our first priority when developing our products. Upon receiving a vulnerability submission, we will make a preliminary assessment within 8 hours, and fix any vulnerability within a day. A patch will be available within a short period of time after confirmation. We ensure the products you have is secure and reliable.
Engage with the hacker community with bounty programs
Synology NAS is committed to high standards of safety. We hold the bounty programs every year and invite the top hackers to enhance the security of Synology products. Keeping user information safe and building a more secure product are the mission of Synology. We welcome the contribution of external security researchers and look forward to awarding them for their invaluable contribution to the security of all Synology users.
Evolving software security
In addition to the responsive security event handling process, Synology is also dedicated to strengthening software encryption and network connection security.
Military grade encryption - AES encryption
The advanced encryption algorithm keeps shared folders on your hard disks strictly confidential. Data transmission over the Internet can also be encrypted, so that it is safe even while accessing services like File Station, FTP, SMB3, and WebDAV.
Self-scanning - Qualys
Synology protects your data with various DSM features, including the reliable, market-leading vulnerability scanner, QualysGuard, which allows Synology to conduct thorough system scans and implement remediation on every major DSM release. Get the security scan results of DSM.
DiskStation Manager fortifies your account at different levels, providing a secure and reliable environment.
With 2-step verification enabled, you will be required to enter an additional one-time verification code on your mobile device when logging into DSM. Therefore, hackers still cannot access your account without your mobile device.
Your DSM is protected by a two-tiered mechanism. Your account is protected by the mechanism that blocks the IP addresses that fail to log in after a specified number of attempts. Similarly, clients that fail to log in after a specified number of attempts will be blocked. You can set up a block or allow list to control which clients can access the system resources.
Secure data transmission
Secure data transfer and network connection
Multiple SSL certificates
For IT admins, it is possible to create and import multiple SSL certificates to Synology NAS, allowing them to manage multiple domain names in one machine. This makes management and maintenance more streamlined and centralized.
Let's Encrypt integration
With just a few steps, you can get up to 100 free and secure SSL/TLS SAN certificates directly on DiskStation Manager.
TLS profiles are used to secure transmission of data through websites. You can choose the security level of HTTPS encrypted connections and the suitable level for the network connection.
Back up all your data
Just in case of unexpected accidents, including hardware failure, natural disasters, or simply accidental deletion, do remember to back up all your data on all devices.
