CloudFlare protects and accelerates any website online. Once your website is a part of the CloudFlare community, your website’s traffic is routed through CloudFlare’s intelligent global network. CloudFlare automatically optimizes the delivery of your website so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. They also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
As a CloudFlare partner, all sites with One of a Kind Solutions receive this performance and security boost. This is all great, however, how does CloudFlare specifically improve the security of your website?
Automatically performs a browser integrity check for all requests to your website by evaluating the HTTP headers for threat signatures. If a threat signature is found, the request will be denied.
CloudFlare uses threat data from a variety of sources to build a reputation for every visitor online. You set the desired security setting for your site and then CloudFlare’s network stops the threats before it reaches your website. Reputation-based security provides a first line of defense for your website.
Block list / trust list
In addition to CloudFlare’s automatic detection, you can easily add an IP address, IP ranges or entire countries to your Trust and Block list.
Saved bandwidth and server resources
By stopping threats before they get to your website you save bandwidth and resources. Your server is also freed up to serve your legitimate traffic optimally.
Protect SSH / Telnet / FTP ports
Add a layer of protection to ports like SSH, FTP and Telnet by disabling them for your root domain. Continue to access them from a subdomain of your choosing.
Breaking the cycle of malware
Websites are empowered to inform visitors with compromised computers so these visitors can take action to clean the malware infection.
CloudFlare uses the collective intelligence of its community to get smarter. CloudFlare’s network learns from every new attack and then shares that information with the rest of the CloudFlare community. What this means is that since CloudFlare continually learns, every site, regardless of size, makes the system smarter.
