Protecting our Platforms – Cloudflare…

CloudFlareWe like to try out new technology when we think it can benefit both us and our customers, so as of today we have deployed the wonderful CloudFlare to Security News. We are just trailing it at the moment to see how it runs along with our services and users, but so far everything looks great.

What is CloudFlare?
It’s an intermediate protection layer for your website. Quite simply, you re-route your primary DNS services to it and CloudFlare actively monitors all inbound traffic to your site for discrepancies (based on a selected security level). Known spammers / bots and other internet based attacks which may slow down site response times are ‘killed’ before they even make the HTTP request to the server.

From their site:
We automatically optimize the delivery of your web pages so your visitors get the fastest page load times and best performance. We also block threats and limit abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources. The result: CloudFlare-powered websites see a significant improvement in performance and a decrease in spam and other attacks.
