Description of technology


Cloudflare - offers a wide range of network security services. The flagship service is high-quality protection against DDoS attacks. Cloudflare's protection is characterized by a very low Time to Mitigate (TTM) thanks to the high network bandwidth and numerous data centers in over 300 cities across 100 countries. Cloudflare also provides Firewall-as-a-Service, which can globally serve as a layer of network security for internet access (including integrated IDS/IPS).

Cloud Security - Cloud-Native Protection Platform

Cloudflare - also provides services for developers and DevOps teams to streamline software development processes. A serverless-based platform allows the execution of application code without the need for managing infrastructure and components on which the code runs. This platform automatically creates workloads, provides disk space, and offers API access. Various enhancements such as video streaming support, chat rooms, and support for payment processes make it easier to conduct application testing and manage it effectively.

Cloud Security - Security Access Service Edge

Cloudflare - offers an integrated Zero Trust platform that combines several product classes. At the core of the Zero Trust platform is SASE solution (Secure Access Service Edge), which provides multi-layered protection in a distributed environment, especially in the context of connections to public networks. SASE enables the definition of unified security policies regardless of the location of the protected resources and also includes protection for remote users. SASE solutions can be equipped with additional modules that allow for the filtering of sensitive data (DLP - Data Loss Prevention) and CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) tools that integrate with SaaS applications, enabling breach detection and remediation actions. Another tool in the Zero Trust platform is the Cloud Email Security service. Its primary goal is to effectively process and filter email messages to eliminate potentially malicious or unwanted content, such as phishing, malware, or spam.

Web Application Firewall

Cloudflare - can actively monitors and mitigates any web/API breaches by analyzing incoming requests directed at applications. Moreover, services like CDN enable users to access applications conveniently, regardless of their geographic location. Application continuity can also be ensured through load balancing services, which enhance service availability. Additionally, the use of Rate Limiting technology in conjunction with Bot Management effectively restricts the use of application environments by automated scripts, resulting in reduced production environment costs. In the context of application security, Cloudflare offers protection against application-layer DDoS attacks (L7 DDoS) as well as DDoS attacks on DNS servers.
