Through its 2023 SASE market analysis, KuppingerCole Analysts AG cited several Cloudflare strengths such as our large globally distributed presence and sophisticated traffic acceleration, massive backbone capacity, 100% uptime guarantee, and innovative Remote Browser Isolation.
Simplify branch connectivity — Facilitate site-to-site connectivity across network locations like branch offices, retail locations, or factory floors, with Anycast-enabled WAN connectors.
Simplify hybrid and multi-cloud connectivity — Use centralized controls to route and secure traffic across varied public cloud environments and on-prem datacenters.
Secure WAN connectivity — Secure connections by applying filters and inspections for traffic between network locations and in/out of the broader Internet.
Scale WAN performance — Augment or eventually replace legacy MPLS or SD-WAN for more agile, cost-effective deployments and faster connections.
Magic WAN comes with Magic Firewall, a built-in software-defined network firewall part of Cloudflare’s SASE platform that applies packet filters and intrusion detection signatures for ingress and egress traffic. You can also layer in additional security capabilities like DNS filtering, Secure Web Gateway inspection, Remote Browser Isolation, DDoS protection, and more — all converged in Cloudflare’s connectivity cloud.
