Get near real-time visibility into network- and transport-layer traffic patterns and DDoS attacks. Investigate attacks by their types, sizes, and sources right from the dashboard.

Security with integrated performance

Unlike other cloud providers that backhaul Internet traffic to identify threats at distant scrubbing centers, every Cloudflare service runs on every data center than spans over 275 cities. So there’s no added network latency due to backhauling and all traffic benefits from faster routing over the Cloudflare network.

Always-on or on-demand

Choose a deployment model that suits your needs. Cloudflare Magic Transit offers flexible options for both always-on and on-demand architectures with manual or automatic switchover.

Scale as your business grows

Cloudflare Magic Transit is completely cloud-based, with a mitigation capacity of 172 Tbps. So you don’t have to worry about buying more (or any) boxes for DDoS mitigation or traffic acceleration as you expand your customer base.
