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.

Most of my Cloudflare recommendations are for personal or small pager or stores, the main reason is undoubtedly the FREE SSL certificate, it is way less useful when you do have a good server setup with your own SSL and optimizations on top. At least in its free plan, it's NOT recommendable for bigger systems with backend processes where you have large database queries as you can hit its timeout that can be changed, that said, it's a good 300 seconds timeout, your page should never take more than this, except if its a bulk backend process that doesn't affect usability (our case).

I can't even imagine a case when you do not need Cloudflare. It can be connected simply for the sake of free CDN, not to mention the fact that it confidently solves the protection of your applications from DDoS attacks and provides flexible DNS settings.

Cloudflare is the best suited for customers who need to protect their web application, even if they have applications that reside only on-premise customer can use Cloudflare Zero Trust Access capabilities

Well suited for using protection on the email server side. Having that security protection on checking mail traffic coming and going thru the company and remote users as well. Good on filtering web services and blocking malicious sites that will cause harm to the organization.

For Small DDoS protection, Cloudflare does not work very well. However, it does provide several tools to manually add this kind of protection. Cloudflare works very well for mitigating medium to big DDoS attacks, provides an excellent CDN, and has good options for web app firewalls.

Great product speeding up consumer-facing websites through their CDN. It has PoPs in multiple locations globally and can serve most countries with good performance. The bot detection product is also very effective and prevents the assets from DDOS attacks.

I can't think of a single scenario where Cloudflare isn't useful. Our company uses Cloudflare for ALL sites. In fact, as a Web Development Agency, we don't work with clients unless they allow us to use Cloudflare. It's really that good ;-) and necessary for modern websites and apps.

Cloudflare helps us to keep our website safe and secure and it does help to cache our websites to improve loading speed of the websites. We do use reverse proxy setup which gives extra layer of security to our web servers against DDOS attacks. One should undergo some learning curve in order to expertise in this. They also have convenient price structure and free version of product to experience their service.

Best DDos protection tool

Cloudflare is best to give you the protection that is cloud-based, it will secure your servers and handle all load on their servers. We are able to able to customize our website geographically wise, as they are giving service to open websites in a specific region and we are able to protect not to run on other regions.

I would suggest Cloudflare if you need immediate protection against bots and similar attacks. It's very simple to setup. Also, if your cloud provider doesn't offer similar protections, you can configure it to block all traffic, besides from Cloudflare and be even safer.

For our SMB, Cloudflare provides an array of automated, useful, affordable, and easy-to-manage services. This affords our internal IT to focus on other priorities instead of constantly having to play gatekeeper for our web services. Whether we need to update DNS records, make changes to other web services, or acquire metrics/analytics from our account, we know that Cloudflare provides a consistent, secure, and easy-to-use platform that we trust.

It's amazing for load times and compression and is a great resource for anyone who needs to speed up their site. IT's also amazing for more detailed website analytics. Where it falls short is SEO values - they don't have SEO inside of the platform but that might be that they just didn't want to compete with MOZ, etc.

I would recommend Cloudflare to a colleague for many reasons. One nice thing is they have a generous free tier to help you get started for free. Once a site is set up there is lots of room for growth and the use of additional features.

This is based on the solution being deployed by the main provider to us who implemented additional tools to mitigate an attack and the knowledge we have with our current appliance-based solution to give us that fortified protection at the edge of the network based on case studies and talking with other providers who have implemented the Cloudflare solution.

Cloudflare seems well suited regardless of size, with packages that match ambition regardless. It is very easy to bring in to solve a specific problem and adapt/grow as required. The typical entry point is website security/performance but there is far more to it. Zero trust is our focus now with Cloudflare, although the product suite seems to suit any modern/digitally focused firm.

If you are not an IT Guru - don't bother using this provider. After 3 weeks of my emails going to SPAM, they did absolutely NOTHING. Their "support" staff sends you a Robo-generated email if you report a problem then NEVER answers the email you reply to. I even tried their "Email Record Creator wizard". It's useless and doesn't let you know if errors are present. Look - places like Rackspace will do everything for you and actually communicate if there's an issue. Rating - ZERO stars.

I strongly recommend companies should implement this greatest, efficient, and versatile DDoS protection solution. Cloudflare's built-in analytics provide companies with more information about their traffic trends, threats detected, and much more, all through the dashboard or via the Cloudflare GraphQL API. CloudFlare's DDoS protection is complemented by rate limiting, which allows for accurate prevention of the most complex and advanced threats against the application layer.

Very well suited as a web application firewall that helps to protect your website, while also speeding it up and reducing the amount of content that needs to be delivered from your site. The load balancing and automatic failover features are good but could be improved upon.

As a banking entity, we have placed our trust entirely on Cloudflare for DDoS attacks. Data protection is very much critical for the organization and Bank is very much focused on the availability of its data to legitimate customers. And Cloudflare gives you a comprehensive reporting structure where everything is visible.

We found Cloudflare to be very well-suited for small businesses like ours, who need a cost-effective way of managing web properties. It is best at the simple static site hosting through Pages, paired with DNS management for the domains, with all the other features like DDoS protection and Routes as very welcome bonuses. The benefits are more so if there are multiple properties/domains to be managed, as the UI design makes it easy to manage multiple properties.
