Cloudflare has extended its Zero Trust offering (opens in a new tab) to messaging services as well as data loss prevention (DLP).
The company has added new features to its Zero Trust SASE platform – Cloudflare One, which it promises will be a “deeply integrated” approach that enables easy deployment with just a few clicks, fast performance, and strong endpoint security (opens in a new tab), networks, and email.
For email (opens in a new tab), Cloudflare will look to combine its anti-phishing solution obtained when it purchased Area 1 Security, with its browser isolation feature, automatically quarantining malicious links, in a remote browser session.
Email and data protection
When it comes to data, Cloudflare says it has now moved beyond "just online analytics." Its Zero Trust platform promises real-time controls, with built-in data loss prevention tools that scan sensitive information (opens in a new tab) or against data at rest, with an API-based CASB.
Other features include the protection of all connections with Zero Trust controls, as well as the connection and protection of data, devices, desktops, cloud networks and more, without depending on hardware cabinets, through Cloudflare Magic WAN, which now is generally available.
Since its announcement in 2020, Cloudflare One has more than doubled the number of customers year over year, the company said, while average daily traffic has increased sixfold over the same period.
“When I sit down with customers, they share that one of the most daunting aspects of Zero Trust security is simply where to start. Worse yet, each vendor has a different definition of Zero Trust, transforming a critical approach to security into a misunderstood and misunderstood approach." overused term,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.
“We believe Zero Trust should span the entire network, from email to data centers, and make connections for users and devices faster, not slow people down. And we want to give every customer a step-by-step guide on what they can do today, this week, and this month to be more secure, no matter which provider they use."
