"Cloudflare is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) service and network security solution."
Cloudflare is a successful combination of network security and performance solution that increases websites or networks speed and provides protection of websites, mobile applications, APIs, and SaaS services. It is one of the leading Content Delivery Network on the market.
This CDN service speeds up and enhances the performance of networks, websites, apps, and APIs. It operates as a network of proxy servers and data centers (more than 100) that are located around the world, powering over 10 trillion requests per month. The service can manage 10Tbps in bandwidth for their users.
When it comes to security, the key security elements include protection against SQL injection, which attacks the code of the website. It also protects from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which is on the rise by exploitation of insecure Internet-of-Things devices. These downtimes can make the average hourly cost as high as $100,000 per hour.
