Cloudflare’s Mutual Authentication (TLS Client Authentication) creates a secure, authenticated connection between IoT devices and their origin server.
Cloudflare’s firewall instantly blocks malicious threats across all IoT devices at the network level.
Cloudflare delivers IoT firmware updates directly from cache, resulting in faster updates and reduced bandwidth costs.
Cloudflare’s compression and performance optimizations reduce data transmission, resulting in lower power consumption and better battery life.
"Keeping our products and customers secure is our primary concern. Cloudflare provides an extra layer of security that allows us to keep our devices continually updated and ahead of any vulnerabilities."

Cloudflare’s Mutual Authentication (TLS Client Authentication) creates a secure connection between an Internet of Things device and its origin. When a device attempts to establish a connection with its origin server, Cloudflare validates the device’s certificate.
If the device has a valid client certificate, like having the correct key to enter a building, the device is able to establish a secure connection.
If the device’s certificate is missing, expired, or invalid, the connection is revoked and Cloudflare returns a 403 error.
