Protect your websites and web applications
Firewall, anti-DDoS protection, bandwidth limitation, bot management, VPN… Cloudflare has a particularly dense range of solutions to protect you from cyber threats.
Your website, your APIs and your applications are the core of your business, for your customers, your subcontractors and your employees. They therefore represent major challenges for your company, exacerbated by the widespread use of telecommuting, which widens the gap between successful online organizations and those undergoing digital transformation.
- Secure your website and connected tools, replace virtual private networks (VPN) and control secure SaaS access (CASB)
- Mitigate DDoS attacks, filter malicious bots, stop ransomware, phishing and data loss
- Secure your telecommuters, protect your employees on the Internet, and manage contractor access.

Smart routing, mobile optimization, image compression, video functionality, caching… Cloudflare optimizes performance of your websites, promoting an optimal user experience.
What’s more, it centralizes and accelerates the allocation of access to users, securing the company’s web environment, while simplifying the connection of employees, subsidiaries and suppliers to the tools.
