Phishing is the absolute worst. Unfortunately, sometimes phishing campaigns use Cloudflare for the very convenient, free DNS.
Cloudflare has been recognized as a leader in the “Forrester WaveTM: DDoS Mitigation Solutions, Q4 2017.”
One thing we take pride in at Cloudflare is embracing new protocols and standards that help make the Internet faster and safer. Sometimes this means that we’ll launch support for experimental features or standards still under active development, as we did with TLS 1.3.
News outlets and blogs will frequently compare DDoS attacks by the volume of traffic that a victim receives. Surely this makes some sense, right? The greater the volume of traffic a victim receives, the harder to mitigate an attack - right?
Cloudflare’s customers recognize that they need to protect the confidentiality and integrity of communications with their web visitors.
