Mumbai: The content delivery network and DDoS mitigation company Cloudflare has expanded its Zero Trust SASE platform Cloudflare One with new capabilities.

These new capabilities include advanced email security protection, data loss prevention tools, cloud access security broker (CASB), and private network discovery.

With these added offerings, Cloudflare aims to provide a comprehensive and deeply-integrated Zero Trust security and networking solution to organisations. And help them protect and improve the performance of devices, applications, and entire networks to keep workforces secure and productive.

Automatically protect users from phishing attacks: Email is one of the largest cyberattack vectors on the Internet, which makes integrated email security-critical to any true Zero Trust network. By combining leading phishing protection from Cloudflare’s recent acquisition of Area 1 Security with Cloudflare’s cutting-edge Browser Isolation, malicious links will automatically be quarantined in a remote browser session.

Secure every connection with Zero Trust controls while accelerating users and services: Whether users are connecting to internal resources, the Internet, or are simply opening the email, Cloudflare’s global network allows Zero Trust filtering to be applied to everything, without slowing it down.

Comprehensive controls for data in any location: Beyond just in-line scanning, Cloudflare’s Zero Trust platform provides controls in real-time with built-in data loss prevention tools to scan for sensitive information or against data at rest with an API-driven CASB.

Connect and secure data, devices, offices, cloud networks, and more without relying on hardware boxes: Cloudflare Magic WAN is now generally available, allowing businesses to speed up their network and add security at a fraction of the cost compared to legacy MPLS architecture.

Since the evolution of the Zero Trust Security approach, security vendors have come up with new offerings around Zero Trust security for organisations and enterprises. However, for enterprise customers, it’s complex as well as difficult to chart out their Zero Trust Security strategies and implement them.

“When I sit with customers, they share that one of the most daunting aspects of Zero Trust security is simply where to begin,” said Matthew Prince, Co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.

“Making matters worse, every vendor has a different definition for Zero Trust, turning a critical approach to security into a misunderstood and overused term,” added Prince.

However, in view of Prince, the Zero Trust must be extended to the entire network covering data centres to email to user endpoints. “We want to give every customer a step-by-step guide for what they can do today, this week, and this month to make themselves more secure regardless of what vendor they use,” he informed.

Cloudflare One unifies network security-as-a-service built natively into one of the world’s largest networks, providing fast, reliable global connectivity; cloud-based security; and better visibility and control through a common dashboard and API.

It enables organizations to easily secure their applications and employees against the modern threat landscape without the complex integration costs or disrupting employee productivity like many legacy systems.

Cloudflare One provides a comprehensive Zero Trust SASE solution built natively into its global network, spanning more than 270 cities in over 100 countries.
