Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature of Cloudflare is that it has a free version. They give us the free version with the anti-DDoS features and also the load balancing solution.""The technical support is good.""It is easier to configure and develop documentation to see how we have configured firewalls.""The most valuable feature is the web application firewall.""The solution is very good at mitigating threats.""New and innovative way to protect the client's data."

More Cloudflare Pros »

"In the DDoS it's difficult to validate what is a genuine request from an end user. We've started being able to do that with the logistics that they have set up. With the protection that they have provided, they are able to identify what is valid and what is not valid. We see that a person who is getting DDoS Neustar service is able to block that particular user. However, while they are doing that it doesn't affect other customers on the server."

Cons
"If they improve on the placement of their data centers, it would be better. I'm living in a remote area. I would like to connect to them without any kind of lag.""The product support needs to be accessible from more places, a wider area of coverage.""It should have easier documentation for the configuration. It's very technical and people who aren't technical should also be able to do the configuration.""There should be a specific price list for enterprise-level customers.""The solution could use more analytics on the backend to give us more insights into everything. More reports would be helpful.""Technical support is lacking."

More Cloudflare Cons »

"I would like to see a dashboard that shows you the data that is transferred from which end. It's where people start looking at abuse management. People keep questioning when the mitigation is on what service it is and how many GBs are passing through. An end user dashboard that will help you identify all of these questions and that can be visible in your entire organization is something that would make sense."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees.""The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization."

Cloudflare is the leading performance and security company helping to build a better Internet. Today the company runs one of the world’s largest networks that powers more than 9 million Internet applications. More than 10 trillion Internet requests flow through Cloudflare’s network each month, accounting for nearly 10% of all Internet requests globally.

Cloudflare protects and accelerates any Internet application online without adding hardware, installing software, or changing a line of code. Internet properties powered by Cloudflare have all web traffic routed through its intelligent global network, which gets smarter with each new site added. As a result, they see significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
