Increasing Internet Security Pressures
Websites and applications require the resilience and intelligence of a scalable network to combat the biggest and newest attacks. It’s important to ensure that performance is never sacrificed for security and that systems have easy setup and configuration, avoiding configuration errors which can introduce security vulnerabilities.
Greater attack surface area from more public APIs, moving to the cloud, and increasing third-party integrations
Stronger and more sophisticated attackers
Greater scrutiny by government and media around data, privacy and internet security
Increasing Internet Security Pressures
Mitigate DDoS Attacks
Protect applications, websites, and APIs from malicious traffic targeting network and application layers, to maintain availability and performance, while containing operating costs.
Cloudflare’s 165 data center Anycast network with 25 Tbps capacity can defend against volumetric attacks 15x bigger than the largest DDoS attack ever recorded. By observing over 300B request per day — 10% of the world’s HTTP Internet traffic — Cloudflare proactively defends against threats by learning from attacks targeting 12,000,000 domains on its network.
Ease of Use
Setting up Cloudflare takes as little as 5 minutes. Cloudflare’s ease of use enables companies to expand Internet security policy responsibilities across more employees, reduce time to deploy new policies, and improve timely adjustments to the security posture of complex applications.
Integrated Security & Performance
Cloudflare removes the need to sacrifice performance for security. Instead of decreasing performance, Cloudflare’s security features can increase application performance because of low-latency security services integrated with traffic acceleration.
"Knowing that we don’t have to worry about DDoS attacks against our API and gateway servers gives us the peace of mind to focus on improving our product."
Cloudflare's Performance and Security Services work in conjunction to reduce latency of websites, mobile applications, and APIs end-to-end, while protecting against DDoS attack, abusive bots, and data breach.
Cloudflare Performance Services improve conversions, reduce churn, and improve visitor experiences by accelerating web and mobile performance, while keeping applications available.
Cloudflare includes a suite of web optimizations to improve the performance of Internet assets. Optimizations include the latest web standards, such as HTTP/2 and TLS 1.3, as well as proprietary enhancements for images and mobile device visitors.
Railgun compresses previously uncacheable web objects up to 99.6% by leveraging techniques similar to those used in the compression of high-quality video. This results in an average 200% additional performance increase.
With 165 data centers across 76 countries and 25 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.
