CloudFlare launches new performance, security service

Provides websites with 60% decrease in bandwidth usage

By CBR Staff Writer

California-based CloudFlare has launched the public beta of its performance and security service at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference.

CloudFlare claims that it works on any platform, regardless of the underlying infrastructure, and it does not require any hardware, software, or changes to the existing code.

The setup of new performance and security service takes less than 5 minutes, and once it is on the CloudFlare network, sites see an average 30% improvement in page load times, a 60% decrease in bandwidth usage, and a 65% decrease in load on their server.

In addition, the company’s core service is available for free, and services, such as SSL, realtime reports, and advanced security are available for a fee beginning at $20/month.

CloudFlare CEO and co-founder Matthew Prince said that the company addresses two real problems everyone with a website has, making sure it’s fast and making sure it’s secure.

"By bringing the performance and security tools previously available only to the Internet giants to anyone with a website, CloudFlare is disrupting the very way in which content is made available online," Prince said.
