Employees that work from home have trouble with the speed and experience of VPNs. Therefore, organizations look for an alternative to the expensive patchwork of legacy solutions for connecting securely corporate offices to each other and the Internet. Cloudflare launched Cloudflare One that protects and accelerates the performance of devices, applications, and entire networks to keep workforces secure.
Protecting the workforce in a flexible and scalable way
In addition to this, to adopt a Zero Trust architecture is a need the businesses of all sizes. According to an October 2020 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting, 82% of all organizations have already committed to migrating to a Zero Trust security architecture. This solution enables businesses to protect their workforce in a flexible and scalable way, without compromising security as distributed teams work from multiple devices and personal networks.
Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare, said,
“After decades of building legacy corporate networks, organizations are left with clunky systems designed to protect their now empty offices. The only way to secure today’s work-from-anywhere economy is to secure each individual employee, protecting their individual networks, devices, and access to business-critical applications. With Cloudflare One, we’re giving organizations of any size the power to solve their security and networking needs seamlessly, no matter how their business needs shift.”
Cloudflare One uses that same network scale to give businesses multiple on-ramps to the public Internet from offices to data centers, to employees in-the-field and connects traffic to Cloudflare’s Zero Trust solution. It includes a unified set of tools for a Zero Trust solution to secure every connection, protect against zero-day attacks, integrate with the security solutions, monitor, and manage your network.
