“Cyberattacks are on the rise and they’ve become more sophisticated. Recent attacks on critical infrastructure made visible, to the broader public, the impact of cyber threats on daily life,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “Our customers have long turned to us for cybersecurity and Zero Trust solutions, and today we’re hyper focused on making those same tools available to federal agencies as they do the important work of building a more secure and resilient infrastructure for our nation.”
FBI, US Department of State
Several US Federal Government entities, including the FBI, the US Department of State, the Department of the Interior, and the Library of Congress, already rely on Cloudflare’s worldwide network for Internet security, web performance, and reliability services.
As a global CDN solutions provider, Cloudflare is dedicated to protecting vital government operations, such as the electoral infrastructure of the United States. Cloudflare’s Athenian Project offers free election administration services to state, county, and local governments. Cloudflare further stated that in the 2020 election, officials in more than half of the United States used the company’s CDN services to guarantee that hackers did not disrupt the voting process.
