Cloudflare Releases Cloud-based Network-as-a-Service Solution, Cloudflare One

As more businesses rely on the Internet to operate, the newly released Cloudflare One solution would protect and accelerate the performance of devices, applications, and entire networks. It allows businesses to protect their workforce in a flexible and scalable way. It would also provide security guarantees, as distributed teams work from multiple devices and personal networks.

CDN provider Cloudflare secures and accelerates more than 25 million Internet properties using a global network that covers 200+ cities in more than 100 countries. Cloudflare One uses that same network scale to give businesses multiple on-ramps to the public Internet. From offices to data centers to employees in-the-field. It connects traffic to Cloudflare’s comprehensive Zero Trust solution.

“The only way to secure today’s work-from-anywhere economy is to secure each individual employee, protecting their individual networks, devices, and access to business-critical applications,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.

As a unified solution, Cloudflare One would enable fast and safe connections to workplace applications. It would allow teams to use an app without exposing it to the public Internet, make personal devices safe for business use, and work in any environment with any cloud provider.

“After decades of building legacy corporate networks, organizations are left with clunky systems designed to protect their now empty offices,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “The only way to secure today’s work-from-anywhere economy is to secure each individual employee, protecting their individual networks, devices, and access to business-critical applications. With Cloudflare One, we’re giving organizations of any size the power to solve their security and networking needs seamlessly, no matter how their business needs shift.”

Cloudflare One provides a unified set of tools for a Zero Trust solution. It would give organizations a one-stop-shop to do things like:

  • Secure every connection – Remote employees can get the same protection they’d expect from a corporate firewall no matter where they are working from. With Cloudflare One, Cloudflare Access checks for identity across every workload. Cloudflare Gateway would keep users, devices, and data safe on the Internet.
  • Protect against Zero-Day attacks – Today’s browsers are inherently vulnerable to zero-day attacks and other malicious threats on the Internet. Cloudflare’s remote browser isolation technology creates a gap between a user’s browser and endpoint, protecting devices and networks from exploits and attacks.
  • Integrate with the security solutions you’re using – Cloudflare “seamlessly” connects with leading identity platforms like Okta, Onelogin, and Ping Identity. And also, with endpoint protection platforms like CrowdStrike, VMware Carbon Black, Tanium, and SentinelOne – to verify identity and assess device health before granting access to applications.
  • Monitor and manage your network with a single pane of glass – With Cloudflare’s firewall features, businesses get a comprehensive view of all data flows globally. It can give businesses a bird’s eye view of what’s happening on their data centers, branch offices, clouds, and endpoints. Businesses can then use that intelligence to mitigate intrusions and threats quickly across the entire network.
