On 11 Jan 2023, Cloudflare, Inc., a leading cybersecurity solutions provider focused on building a better internet, announced multiple new Zero Trust email security tools, compatible with any email provider. The solution prevents sensitive data exfiltration via email, guard employees against multichannel phishing attacks, and help businesses simplify and accelerate deployments. Cloudflare offers organizations simple and reliable phishing and malware protection that is deeply incorporated with its Zero Trust platform, helping organizations secure all their data and applications.
“You can’t have a complete Zero Trust solution without securing email, given that a huge proportion of all cyberattacks begin with phishing,” stated the Co-Founder and CEO of Cloudflare, Matthew Prince. “In 2022, Cloudflare Area 1 identified and kept almost 2.3 billion unwanted messages out of customer inboxes. Today we’re filling a void in the marketplace that has been underinvested in for the last ten years, with the first set of deeply integrated solutions that bring together Cloudflare Area 1 email security and our Zero Trust platform,” he added.
Email is one of the most pervasive and exploited tools used by businesses daily. According to the FBI’s most recent Internet Crime Report, email account compromise and business email compromise led to U.S. companies losing nearly US$ 2.4 billion. In addition, email is one of the most complex tools for businesses to secure, involving a massive drain on IT team resources, multiple vendors, and complex deployments.
Cloudflare’s Zero Trust SASE platform will allow customers to deploy email security and data protection tools that are comprehensively linked with their current security stack and compatible with any email service provider. Cloudflare One offers a comprehensive Zero Trust SASE platform that is built into Cloudflare’s global network, which spans over 275 cities in over 100 countries. This deeply embedded approach makes it easy to set up in just a few clicks without switching email providers.
With Cloudflare Area 1’s new solutions, companies can automatically isolate questionable email attachments and links, identify and prevent data leaks, and rapidly onboard new Microsoft 365 domains.
Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Cloudflare safeguards and speed up any Internet-based application without installing software, adding hardware, or modifying a single line of code. As a result, the company’s clients experience significant improvement in performance and a reduction in spam and other attacks. Founded in 2009, the organization ranks amongst the 50 most innovative companies worldwide by Fast Company, is acknowledged by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer, and has been named the Most Innovative Network & Internet Technology Company for two consecutive years by the Wall Street Journal.
