Faster Internet access

  • Existing firewall or secure web gateway solutions haul user requests to centralized scrubbing centers for inspections, slowing down user access.
  • Cloudflare’s edge network operates in 200+ locations around the world, which means it's always close to your users and the resources on the Internet they need.
  • It uses Anycast with a 100% uptime SLA, which means you never have to configure where user-initiated traffic is routed or worry about outages.
