Cloudflare provides a global content delivery network (CDN) with unique performance optimization capabilities. We've built a best-in-class, global infrastructure from the ground up using next-generation equipment. The result is a CDN that's easier to set up, more affordable, and built to outperform any legacy CDN on the market.
The SaaS market is expected to grow by 196% from 2016 to 2020. As this growth continues, SaaS providers face increased competition in delivering secure and performant applications to customers. Underperforming applications and those vulnerable to attack will inevitably experience a negative impact on revenue, end-user engagement, brand reputation, and customer churn.
Beyond availability, SaaS customers expect that the applications they purchase are protected by SSL encryption and served from their own custom domain—rather than that of their provider.
Download our free guide to learn about the performance, security, and encryption demands of SaaS application customers and end visitors, including how to secure the transfer of customer data with an easy-to-implement and fully managed SSL solution for custom vanity domains.

Cloudflare enables IPv6 for customers on Cloudflare by default, making it seamless and easy. Our automatic IPv6 getaway allows IPv4-only websites to support IPv6-only clients with one click. No hardware. No software. No code changes.
Keyless SSL lets sites use Cloudflare’s SSL service while retaining on-premise custody of their private keys. Companies are able to get all of the benefits of the cloud (DDoS attack mitigation, load balancing, WAN optimization), without having to choose between encrypting web traffic or giving their SSL private keys to a 3rd party cloud provider.
Cloudflare believes that architecture matters and that the only solution against massively distributed botnets is a massively distributed network. Cloudflare has based its service on this architectural approach, and while there are limits to any service, so far Cloudflare has not been impacted by any IoT botnet attack.
The FFIEC requires banks to take a comprehensive approach to maintain the security and resilience of the technology infrastructure including the establishment of a robust cybersecurity framework. Cloudflare can help to protect critical financial systems against cyber-attacks while achieving the regulatory compliance requirements set forth by the FFIEC.

The business impact of high latency and downtime for many businesses can run into the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars very quickly. Primary causes for these business challenges include server capacity constraints, application failures, and inefficient routes. To thwart high latency and unavailability, organizations are turning to load balancing. This white paper concludes with a checklist of nine criteria that an organization needs to consider when evaluating load balancing solutions.

With recent developments in HTTPS technology, such as SPDY, sending requests over HTTPS can be faster than using regular HTTP. Also, the complicated operational issues associated with sending encrypted data can be handled by third parties like Cloudflare. It’s time for enterprises to take another look at securing their web traffic.
Mobile continues to become an even more critical e-commerce channel, and the retailers providing the best mobile experience will dominate the market.
