San Francisco – (Business Wire)–Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), a security, performance and reliability company that helps build a better Internet, today announced several new capabilities for its Zero Trust SASE platform Cloudflare One, making it the only cloud Native Zero Trust solution with global web scale.

When I sit with clients, they share that one of the most daunting aspects of zero trust security is where to start. To make matters worse, each vendor has a different definition of zero trust, turning the critical security approach into a misunderstood and overused term,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.”We believe that Zero Trust must extend across the web, from email to data centers, and speed up user and endpoint connections, not slow people down. We want to provide every customer with a step-by-step guide on what they can do today, this week and this month to make themselves more secure, no matter what provider they use. ”

Today, employees are highly mobile, and critical applications have moved to the cloud—no longer residing in offices protected by secure perimeters. A fundamental shift in where and how people work is causing businesses to rethink traditional tools like VPNs and hardware boxes, and abandon traditional castle-and-moat security approaches in favor of zero trust. Cloudflare One unifies natively built-in cybersecurity-as-a-service into one of the world’s largest networks, delivering fast, reliable global connectivity; cloud-based security; better visibility and control through common dashboards and APIs . With Cloudflare’s Zero Trust platform, organizations can easily protect their applications and employees from the modern threat environment without the complex integration costs or disrupting employee productivity of many legacy systems.

This deeply integrated approach ensures simple deployment with just a few clicks, lightning-fast performance no matter where users are located, and robust security across endpoints, network and email, enabling organizations to were able:

  • 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 the leading phishing protection of Cloudflare’s recently acquired Area 1 Security with Cloudflare’s cutting-edge browser isolation, malicious links will be automatically isolated in remote browser sessions.
  • Secure every connection with zero trust controls while accelerating users and services: Whether the user is connecting to an internal resource, the Internet, or just opening an email, Cloudflare’s global network allows Zero Trust filtering to be applied to everything without slowing things down.
