Stop backhauling traffic to centralized datacenters.

Existing firewall solutions haul user requests to centralized scrubbing centers for inspections, slowing down user access. Gateway replaces expensive, on-premise hardware that forces tradeoffs between performance and security by requiring traffic to be backhauled to a central location. With Gateway, the first destination is a Cloudflare data center located near users, for all outbound traffic.

Gateway's logging capabilities allow you to discover unapproved use of SaaS applications. You can use Gateway's policy engine to block access to non-approved apps. Integrate user identities and roles into Gateway to limit access to specific subdomains and functions of enterprise SaaS applications.

Legacy approach

Teams need to connect to the Internet to do their work. Legacy approaches attempted to force that Internet traffic through hardware that could not scale and only slowed down users.
