Today we're excited to announce what we began to plan more than two years ago: the 18.104.22.168 App with Warp performance and security technology. We built Warp from the ground up to thrive in the harsh conditions of the modern mobile Internet.
You can now place applications that require SSH connections, like your source control repository, behind Cloudflare Access. We’re excited to release that same feature so that your team can also destroy your own VPN.
We built Access to solve a problem here at Cloudflare: our VPN. Our team members hated the slowness and inconvenience of VPN but, that wasn’t the issue we needed to solve. The security risks posed by a VPN required a better solution.
Since leaving beta three weeks ago, Cloudflare Access has become our fastest-growing subscription service. Every day, more teams are using Access to leave their VPN behind and connect to applications quickly and securely from anywhere in the world.
Using a VPN is painful: Logging-in interrupts your workflow. You have to remember a separate set of credentials, which your administrator has to manage. If you are away from the office, the VPN slows you down. Beyond just inconvenience, a VPN can pose a real security risk.
