Cloudflare Security Services protect and secure Internet Applications and APIs against denial-of-service attacks, customer data breaches, and abusive bots.
Thanks to the great support we received from the Cloudflare team, especially during our peak weeks in May, we’ve felt more secure that the sites would keep running smooth regardless of amounts of traffic—and they have.

Cloudflare’s network capacity is 15x bigger than the largest DDoS attack ever recorded. With 15 Tbps of capacity, it can can handle any modern distributed attack, including those targeting DNS infrastructure.
With 135 data centers across 58 countries and 15 Tbps of capacity, Cloudflare’s Anycast network absorbs distributed attack traffic by dispersing it geographically, while keeping Internet properties available and performant.
DNSSEC is the Internet’s non-spoofable caller ID. It guarantees a web application’s traffic is safely routed to the correct servers so that a site’s visitors are not intercepted by a hidden “man-in-the-middle” attacker.
Cloudflare’s enterprise-grade web application firewall (WAF) detects and block common application layer vulnerabilities at the network edge, utilising the OWASP Top 10, application-specific and custom rulesets.
Transport Security Layer (TLS) encryption enables HTTPS connections between visitors and origin server(s), preventing man-in-the-middle attacks, packet sniffing, the display of web browser trust warnings, and more.
