Cybersecurity and Performance for Government & Public Sector

Protect and accelerate mission-critical Internet assets and infrastructure

Federal and State governments are required to maintain a digital presence, meeting high standards of effectiveness and usability and providing quality information that is readily accessible to all1.

This task is becoming increasingly difficult, as the number of cyber incidents reported by federal agencies has jumped more than 1,300 percent, from 5,503 to 77,183, over the last 10 years, through fiscal 20152. As of May 2017, Executive Order 13800 was signed into office, ensuring that cybersecurity protections are in place, which requires work on each department's’ part to comply with new regulations. This Executive Order also establishes that the President will hold heads of executive departments and agencies accountable for managing cybersecurity risk to their enterprises.

Entities at state and local levels, such as educational institutions, museums, and state departments, which are managing Internet assets and critical infrastructure, continue to be at greater risk due to distributed cybersecurity teams with non-cohesive security practices.

Cloudflare’s 20 Tbps global Anycast network of 155 data centers across 75 countries, including 21 in mainland China, protects government and public sector Internet properties from application layer attacks, botnets, and other automated distributed threats, while ensuring highly available and performant experiences across all visitor devices.

Protect Against Malicious Traffic

Protect Against Malicious Traffic

Cloudflare’s 20 Tbps global Anycast network of 155 data centers across 75 countries is 15x bigger than the largest distributed attack ever recorded. Cloudflare’s DDoS protection mitigates attacks targeting layers 3, 4, and 7, as well as DNS.

Protect Sensitive Data from Breaches

Protect Sensitive Data from Breaches

Protect against new and evolving threats through shared intelligence across 12 million websites and automatically updated WAF rules. Cloudflare reduces the risk of data compromise through a layered security defense (Rate Limiting, DNS, SSL/TLS, WAF, Firewall).

Accelerated Performance

Accelerated Performance

Cloudflare’s Anycast content delivery network caches static content closest to visitors, reducing latency and accelerating page load times. Combined with website optimizations, load balancing, and smart routing, Cloudflare ensure fast and highly available experiences across multiple devices.

Cost Savings

Cost Savings

Predictable flat-rate pricing means never being charged for bandwidth usage, even in the case of legitimate traffic spikes or attack. Additionally, Cloudflare caches and serves static content, saving on monthly bandwidth costs.

Trusted Implementation Partners

Cloudflare is proud to partner with trusted and certified MSPs, ISVs, and VARs to deliver security and performance to government and public sector Internet properties.

Customer Case Study

"Cloudflare helped me solve the technical problem, implement a solution on a Friday night before a long weekend, and said we could worry about the money next week. As someone who was at maximum frustration that was music to my ears."

Cloudflare Security

Cloudflare’s 20 Tbps global Anycast network of 155 data centers across 75 countries is 10x bigger than the largest distributed attack ever recorded. Cloudflare’s DDoS protection mitigates attacks targeting layers 3, 4, and 7, as well as DNS. When combined with Web Application Firewall (WAF), Cloudflare mitigates complex attacks targeting the application layer, while protecting against distributed denial-of-service, brute-force login, and API endpoint abuse with fine grain and SSL/TLS around the world. And for additional domain security, Cloudflare is an ICANN accredited registrar, providing secure domain registration and hijack prevention.

"In this year’s historic Senate Special election, it was crucial that our website be able to handle spikes in traffic and remain online in the event of attack. It is very important to our state government and democracy as a whole that voters and the public be able to access registrar, election information, and election results. Cloudflare proved to be an excellent partner, helping us achieve this goal."

Cloudflare Performance

Cloudflare improves the visitor experience of websites, applications, and APIs by reducing latency and optimizing the performance of content delivery. At the core of Cloudflare’s solution is a global content delivery network (CDN) of 155 data centers across 75 countries, bringing content closer to visitors of every region; additional CDN optimizations include auto-minification of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and Gzip compression, saving over 20% on the size of files and resources.

Real-time network intelligence found in Argo’s smart routing finds the fastest paths available, routing around congestion and maintaining open, secure connections to eliminate latency imposed by connection-setup. For additional availability with reductions in latency, Cloudflare Load Balancing distributes traffic across multiple servers, routing it to the closest geographic region, while rapidly avoiding failures.
