Cloudflare expands Zero Trust platform to become the only Cloud-Native Provider


Cloudflare recently upgraded more capabilities to its Cloudflare One, its Zero Trust SASE platform. This makes it the only cloud-native Zero Trust solution with a global network scale. 

New features include sophisticated email security protection, data loss prevention tools, cloud access security broker (CASB), and private network discovery. Thus, Cloudflare One is available to any organization for its 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.

“We believe Zero Trust must extend to the entire network, 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,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder, and CEO of Cloudflare.

Nowadays, companies opt to utilize the cloud to move critical applications and work materials, where their employees don’t require to stay in an office. With Cloudflare One, its Zero Trust platform allows companies to quickly secure their applications and employees without the complex integration costs or disruption of employees’ productivity. Technically, it unifies network security-as-a-service built natively into Cloudflare’s global network, providing fast, reliable global connectivity, cloud-based security, and better visibility and control through an all-in-one dashboard and API. 

This deeply integrated approach ensures a simple deployment in just a few clicks, lightning-fast performance wherever users are, and robust security across endpoints, networks, and email, enabling organizations to:

  • Automatically protect users from phishing attacks: Email is one of the largest cyber attack vectors on the Internet, making integrated email security critical to any true Zero Trust network. By combining leading phishing protection from Cloudflare’s recent acquisition of Area 1 Security with Cloudflare’s cutting-edge Browser Isolation, malicious links will automatically be quarantined in a remote browser session.
  • Secure every connection with Zero Trust controls while accelerating users and services: Whether users are connecting to internal resources, the Internet, or are simply opening an email, Cloudflare’s global network allows Zero Trust filtering to be applied to everything without slowing it down.
  • Comprehensive controls for data in any location: Beyond just in-line scanning, Cloudflare’s Zero Trust platform provides controls in real-time with built-in data loss prevention tools to scan for sensitive information or against data-at-rest with an API-driven CASB.
  • Connect and secure data, devices, offices, cloud networks, and more without relying on hardware boxes: Cloudflare Magic WAN is now generally available, allowing businesses to speed up their network and add security at a fraction of the cost compared to legacy MPLS architecture.
