Cloudflare is built on an intelligent, secure, high-speed global network.

Cloudflare threat and network intelligence is built into every connection — and not tied to any one cloud provider — to help you stay ahead of the ever-evolving threat landscape. Cloudflare proxies approximately 20% of the web, and blocks an average of 209 billion threats per day. Each and every login, request, and response that goes through our network strengthens the machine learning that we apply to detect and block threats, before they ever reach your organization.

Cloudflare is built with data protection in mind. We are a privacy-first company with end-to-end encryption. We comply with local regulations for data locality and storage. We do not generate revenue from advertising, and thus default against the collection and retention of personal data we process on your behalf.
