SSL for SaaS

Protect customers’ data with strong encryption

Protecting customer data is not only a security best practice but also what your customers and auditors expect.

Cloudflare partners with SaaS Providers to make encryption easy so your customers will have more confidence than ever in your service, knowing their data is safe.

What's New with SSL for SaaS

Apex Proxy Flexibility

Common problems for SaaS Providers when addressing SSL end customer needs:

Bei der Erfüllung von SSL-Anforderungen von Endkunden gibt es für SaaS-Provider drei Szenarien:

Unverschlüsselte aber markenbezogene Vanity-Domain

Custom vanity domains without SSL lack the performance benefits of SSL and secure data transfer, making them vulnerable to snooping and content modification or injection.

Verschlüsselte aber nicht markenbezogene Domain

Domains with SSL enabled through a SaaS provider lack a custom vanity domain, resulting in brand degradation and lower SEO rankings.

Komplexer interner Ansatz

SaaS-Provider, die verschlüsselte markenbezogene Vanity-Domains verwenden möchten, können die SSL-Lebenszyklen entweder manuell verwalten – was zu langen Bereitstellungszeiten und zusätzlichen Betriebskosten führt – oder eine komplexe automatisierte Lösung aufbauen.

Benefits of SSL for SaaS

Branded visitor experiences

You can offer branded domains to your customers, all while enjoying the added benefits of a fully managed SSL certificate. Branded domains offer end customers higher SEO rankings and improved visitor trust.

Secure and performant customer assets

With SSL/TLS certificates, protect your end customers’ domains from on-path attackers and network snooping. Additionally, the HTTP/2 protocol becomes available for even greater speed improvements.

Automated SSL lifecycle management

You don’t have to worry about any part of the SSL lifecycle. Cloudflare manages the entire process, from private key creation and protection through domain validation, issuance, renewal, and reissuance.

Rapid global SSL deployments

During the SSL issuance process, Cloudflare deploys new certificates across its global network of data centers in 200 cities, bringing HTTPS online within minutes.
