Cloudflare Valuable Features
VP/Director of IT
They've implemented a tunneling system. It's not quite VPN, but it's not quite HTTP traffic, either. It's a very robust and different system which, in my opinion, is what needs to be done. New and innovative ways to protect the client's data should be the focus.

Cloudflare is easy to use. It's very intuitive. Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva. I think Imperva is far richer in features from what I can see, but I think that can bring its own pains to be honest. For this reason, I think Cloudflare is a simpler version.
With Imperva, you can drill down to packet-level very easily. It's very, very good at drilling down deeper and deeper into the packet. I think that is available with Cloudflare, but it's not as good. It doesn't seem to provide us with the same kind of search capability as Imperva. Having said that, I think that's one of the advantages of Cloudflare because you just have to click a button and drill down via clicking. I actually like Cloudflare to be honest. Imperva is almost too difficult for normal businesses — it's too complex. There's almost too much information there. Whereas with Cloudflare, it's easier to drill down and it's more intuitive.View full review »

The security on offer is good. Specifically, the DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution.

I like caching and DDoS. There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS.View full review »
Information Technology Engineer at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
It is easier to configure and develop documentation to see how we have configured firewalls. It's also more automated. You can have a website injected with SQL command. We put in an SQL injection and Cloudflare rejects it.
It's very user-friendly. A user who doesn't completely know how everything works can easily sign up and have an account.
It is very clear and the information is very useful.
There is a very good reporting system for statistics.View full review »
