What makes Cloudflare different?

Cloudflare’s architecture gives you an integrated set of L3-L7 network services, all accessible from a single dashboard. It is designed to run every service on every server in every data center across our global network. It also gives your developers a flexible, Internet-scale platform to deploy serverless code instantly across the globe. No software or hardware is required. Simple to set up, use, and maintain.

A global immune system for your network.

We have built security into every component of the network. Cloudflare’s 155 Tbps network blocks an average of 70 billion threats per day, including some of the largest DDoS attacks ever recorded. Each and every login, request, and response that goes through our network strengthens the machine learning that we apply to detect and block threats at the edge, before they ever reach your organization.

Compliance and privacy are built-in.

Cloudflare’s network is built with data protection in mind. We are a privacy-first company with end-to-end encryption. We comply with local regulations for data locality and storage. We do not generate revenue from advertising, and thus default against the collection and retention of personal data we process on your behalf.
