Cloudflare Browser Isolation

Internet-native Remote Browser Isolation (RBI)
  • Layer additional threat defense and data protection controls across browsing activities
  • Insulate local devices from malware by running all browser code on Cloudflare's global network
  • Deliver a lightning-fast browsing experience for end users
Benefits of Cloudflare Browser Isolation
No performance sacrifice

Improve team productivity by delivering a fast, secure, and responsive user experience that feels just like local browsing.

Proactively mitigate threats

Reduce cyber risk by running browser code far away from local devices, preventing infection across known malicious, risky, and unknown sites.

Isolate within context

Improve tech efficiency by isolating resources conditionally - per app, per policy, for suspicious sites only, or with additional data loss controls.

Tackle Zero Trust one step at a time

Why choose Cloudflare?
Easy to deploy

Set browser isolation policies with a simple drop-down action in Cloudflare’s unified dashboard to reduce administrative burden.

Thoughtful, native integrations

Unlike other providers, Cloudflare's RBI is natively integrated with all in-line Zero Trust services to make it easier to layer and extend security controls.

RBI that’s actually fast

Delight end users by keeping security invisible with Cloudflare’s innovative Network Vector Rendering technology and hyper-low latency.

Add an additional layer of security

How it works

  • A headless version of the Chromium browser runs all browser code on Cloudflare's global network, instead of on your endpoints.
  • Unlike pixel pushing or DOM rendering, Cloudflare streams draw commands, which use less bandwidth and create a seamless user experience.
  • Security patches for zero-day vulnerabilities are automatically deployed to remote browsers on Cloudflare's network.
