For example, Cloudflare is a very good solution for ZTNA implementation. Cloudflare has Warp for propagating Gateway rules and checking device posture. Browser Isolation gives you more abilities to use internet resources without any restrictions and at the same time not put the company at risk. For example, if there is no DLP solution in place blocking the printing function can partly protect the company's sensitive data from intentional or intentional leakage through the online forms. A similar approach protects the end-user device from Zero-day threats and malicious software code. Moreover, Remote Browser Isolation technology protects not only the user's device but also the user himself from possible phishing attacks - for example, even if the user enters his username and password on the phishing website, bank card issuers, or other personal or confidential data, data will not go beyond the isolated cloud environment. Cloudflare Access gives company administrators a great opportunity to implement role-based access policies and make effect segmentation and diversification of company network groups.

As long as all Cloudflare products and services rely on anycast technology, in a complex approach Cloudflare is faster and more relevant for cloud applications. The balance between security and performance is fully established. Also, Cloudflare has quite a good stack for API connection protection, like the API Shield example, which makes it more effective compared to F5 for example. Warp as a ZTNA agent gives better visibility and device posture information than FortiClient does.

Meta was agile and gave us the product we were looking for. the other vendors were lacking a lot of features or had a difficult deployment.
