Your workforce has expanded to include remote employees, contractors, and vendors. All require secure access to internal applications and tools — no matter where in the world they’re working from.
Cloudflare for Teams enables seamless, Zero Trust application access and software-defined security, allowing you to secure your remote teams, devices, and data without sacrificing performance or user experience.
The larger and more distributed your workforce becomes, the harder it is to secure remote users, devices, and data. Legacy security tools, like hardware firewalls and VPNs, are not built to handle hybrid infrastructure, remote teams, or a constantly-evolving threat landscape.
By design, VPNs trombone all traffic to and from central on-premise appliances. Even when everything runs smoothly, global teams still experience latency when accessing internal tools and data — not only affecting productivity, but user experience as well.
Remote employees use a wide range of devices — from work-issued computers to personal phones and tablets — to access company resources. Without proactive threat protection in place, IT departments lack the visibility and ability to safeguard these employee devices from cyberattacks.
Hardware limitations shouldn’t dictate the strength of your security posture. As your remote workforce expands beyond on-premise offices and devices, you need security tools that can scale alongside it.
Modern enterprises require solutions capable of securing user access to on-premise, cloud-based, and SaaS applications from any location. Eliminate the headache of maintaining slow, outdated VPN infrastructure by authenticating and securing employee tools using a global edge network — accessible from wherever your users are located.
The Zero Trust model requires user identity and multiple contextual factors to authorize access, making it difficult for attackers to impersonate employees and gain access to internal resources.
In this four minute demo, see how easy it is for administrators to securely connect remote workers to applications with Zero Trust rules for application access and Internet browsing. You'll see the administrator experience of policy administration, and what end users experience when connecting through Cloudflare for Teams.
Cloudflare Access places our global edge network in front of your internal applications, eliminating the latency issues remote users often experience with VPN clients. With Zero Trust access controls, every request to your applications is evaluated for user identity and device context before it is authorized.
Cloudflare Gateway secures every connection from every user device, no matter where in the world they’re located. Our powerful policy engine allows you to inspect, secure, and log traffic from corporate devices without suffering performance degradation.
