Voters routinely turn to the Internet to learn more about and connect with political candidates around the world. Protecting your campaign’s website from hostile attacks and ensuring it stays accessible 24/7 is as challenging as it is essential.
Cloudflare offers a suite of products tailor-made to assist campaigns in protecting, accelerating, and ensuring the reliability of their websites — with additional solutions designed to keep internal teams and data secure.
Political campaigns, like any organization, need a comprehensive approach to cyber security. Securing a candidate's website, their critical public-facing presence, and hardening access to key internal applications can vastly improve cyber security.
