Authenticate users with a consistent login flow

Cloudflare for teams integrates with multiple identity providers, enabling your users, whether internal employees or external partners, to authenticate seamlessly with a familiar login flow.


Minimized implicit trust

Cloudflare for Teams removes implicit trust given to network 'insiders' by authenticating each request based on user identity and contextual factors before granting access.


Intuitive policy controls

VPNs are black boxes: they lack the dynamic controls needed to manage access for remote workers, contractors, supply chain partners and more. Cloudflare for Teams delivers better flexibility with application-specific controls and easy-to-use rules.

“The experience with Cloudflare. If I could just give it a rating from one to 10, I will give it a 10. It's been great. It's been simple. It's been easy. And it's not just a product, it has to do a lot with the people that you work with.”
