The result of a successful DDoS attack goes beyond revenue loss from customer defection during downtime. It harms a company's reputation, erodes customer trust and decreases brand value. Effective prevention is crucial. Cloudflare provides comprehensive L3-L7 DDoS protection to secure everything connected to the Internet. With Cloudflare, you gain automated detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks. Cloudflare's autonomous edge and centralized DDoS systems analyze traffic samples outside the regular path, enabling asynchronous detection without latency or performance impact. Once attack traffic matches a rule, Cloudflare’s systems generate real-time signatures to counter the attack pattern precisely without disrupting legitimate traffic. This ensures that your website or app remains online even in the face of an attack.
A WAF plays a crucial role in safeguarding web applications and APIs. It filters and monitors HTTP traffic between a web application and the Internet, shielding against various attacks like cross-site forgery (CSRF), cross-site scripting (XSS), file inclusion and SQL injection. With Cloudflare's WAF, you have the flexibility to establish custom rules, enhancing protection for your website and APIs against malicious traffic - advanced features such as the WAF attack score and uploaded content scanning within your personalized rules can be used.
The longer it takes for your page to load after a user's request, the less likely he is to make a purchase or stay on your website. CDNs were designed to reduce the physical distance between the website user and the website’s hosting server. Cloudflare's CDN reduces hops and latency, with an average request on Cloudflare's network taking less than 23 milliseconds to serve. Cloudflare has developed a purpose-built network tailored for today’s web, distinguishing itself from legacy CDNs through faster performance (50% or even more reductions in load times), reduced bandwidth costs and resilience against cyber attacks (especially DDoS attacks) - providing uninterrupted service to users even in the face of problems.
Cloudflare launched its single-vendor secure access service edge (SASE) platform, which protects enterprise applications, users, devices and networks. The platform includes the secure web access gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and zero-trust network access (ZTNA) capabilities. What sets Cloudflare's SASE apart from other vendors is that every component of this integrated platform is designed for seamless integration from day one. Securing all SASE components through a single vendor ensures simplicity in both usage and management, lowers cost and helps solve visibility and security gaps. Cloudflare’s SASE is built on its robust backbone and global network, which operates in 310 cities across over 120 countries (including Poland, Ukraine, Baltics, Germany and Switzerland) and interconnects 13 000 networks.
