IBM’s enterprise customers will now have access to Cloudflare’s edge computing solutions as IBM becomes an authorized reseller of Cloudflare’s suite of security and performance edge services. Cloudflare’s solutions can be deployed in IBM customer environments, including public, private, hybrid cloud, or on-premise.
Through the collaboration, IBM plans to launch IBM Cloud Internet Services, a one-stop shop for enterprise network edge services. IBM Cloud Internet Services is designed to enable customers to more easily protect and accelerate their Internet properties – domains, applications, and APIs – through an integration of Cloudflare in the IBM Cloud console.
With IBM Cloud Internet Services, “in just a few clicks”, enterprises can obtain “the benefits” of Cloudflare’s massive global network and core DDoS, WAF, DNS, and web caching solutions, in one place, without having to rely on multiple vendors.
“Now IBM enterprise customers can focus on innovating and spend less time worrying about performance issues or potential security incidents,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “We admire IBM’s broad and deep experience with some of the world’s most powerful enterprises, and we view this offering as a great first step in working together.”
Early access to the IBM Cloud Internet Services is available in the IBM Cloud portal now.
“The rate and sophistication of cyber threats is growing daily, but enterprises shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance in order to address the security of their Internet-facing applications,” said John Considine, General Manager, IBM Cloud Infrastructure. “IBM Cloud Internet Services combines IBM’s high-value cloud capabilities and Cloudflare’s robust intelligent network to offer our customers an innovative solution.”
Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Cloudflare has offices in Austin, TX, Champaign, IL, New York, NY, Washington, DC, London, and Singapore.
