Cloudflare has added several new capabilities to its zero-trust SASE platform, Cloudflare One. It is the only cloud-native zero-trust solution with a global network scale. Cloudflare One now comes with advanced email security protection, data loss prevention tools, a cloud access security broker (CASB), and private network discovery. It can be used by any organization to provide a comprehensive and deeply integrated zero-trust security and networking solution to protect and accelerate the performance of devices, applications, and entire networks to keep workforces secure and productive.
Matthew Prince, co-founder, and CEO of Cloudflare stated, “When I sit with customers, they share that one of the most daunting aspects of Zero Trust security is simply where to begin. Making matters worse, every vendor has a different definition for Zero Trust, turning a critical approach to security into a misunderstood and overused term. We believe Zero Trust must extend to the entire network, all the way from email to data centers, and accelerate user and endpoint connections, not slow people down. And we want to give every customer a step-by-step guide for what they can do today, this week, and this month to make themselves more secure regardless of what vendor they use.”
Cloudflare One unifies network security-as-a-service built natively into one of the world’s largest networks, delivering fast, dependable global connectivity, cloud-based security, and improved visibility and control via a unified dashboard and API. Organizations can easily secure their applications and employees against the modern threat landscape using Cloudflare’s Zero Trust platform without incurring complex integration costs or disrupting employee productivity, as many legacy systems do.
Cloudflare One is a comprehensive zero-trust SASE solution that is natively built into Cloudflare’s global network, which spans more than 270 cities in over 100 countries. This deeply integrated approach enables organizations to automatically protect users from phishing attacks. Because email is one of the most common cyber-attack vectors on the Internet, integrated email security is critical to any true zero-trust network. Malicious links will be quarantined automatically in a remote browser session by combining leading phishing protection from Cloudflare’s recent acquisition of Area 1 Security with Cloudflare’s cutting-edge Browser Isolation.
Cloudflare’s global network enabled zero trust filtering will be applied to everything, whether users are connecting to internal resources, the Internet, or simply opening an email. It will ensure secured connections for all along with zero-trust controls while speeding up users and services.
Cloudflare’s zero-trust platform offers real-time controls with built-in data loss prevention tools to scan for sensitive information or against data-at-rest with an API-driven CASB. It also provides in-line scanning with comprehensive data controls in all locations.
It helps connect and secure data, devices, offices, cloud networks, and other resources without the use of hardware boxes. Cloudflare Magic WAN is now generally available, allowing businesses to accelerate and secure their networks at a fraction of the cost of legacy MPLS architecture.
