Cloudflare’s Role in U.S. Cybersecurity
Cloudflare, CrowdStrike and Ping Identity are joining forces to bolster cybersecurity in the United States in light of increasing cyber threats.
The three technology companies will leverage cloud security, endpoint protection, and identity and access management expertise to bolster U.S. security capabilities.
These three companies are positioning the U.S. for improved defense measures against cyber threats.
Overview of Cyber Threats
Cyber threats have become increasingly pervasive and innovative in recent years, ranging from data breaches, ransomware attacks, and nation-state actors that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities. In addition, as businesses and government entities continue to move more of their operations online, the risks of cyber security threats increase dramatically. Therefore, organizations must be prepared for any potential attack or breach that could lead to a loss of confidential information or cause operational disruption.
To support cybersecurity efforts in the United States and help protect US government systems from attacks, a group of technology leaders—Cloudflare, CrowdStrike, and Ping Identity—have come together with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to form a new initiative called the Cybersecurity Statecraft Initiative (CSI). This partnership will bring together best-in-class intelligence gathering expertise and defensive measures to help strengthen cybersecurity efforts across the US. The partnership combines Cloudflare’s secure web gateway solutions with CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform for threat detection and response capabilities and Ping Identity’s federated identity solutions for identity assurance protocols. These companies will leverage their combined capabilities to protect against emerging cyber threats in the US government space.

Overview of Cloudflare’s Security Solutions
Cloudflare is a global cloud platform and one of the world’s leading content delivery networks (CDN). It provides various security solutions to protect organizations from DDoS attacks and data breaches. In addition to providing an integrated security wall for organizations storing data off-site, Cloudflare also helps limit downtime, optimize web performance and improve overall user experience.
Cloudflare’s security solutions include the following:
Web Application Firewall (WAF): The WAF is a cloud-based firewall that protects web applications from common threats such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, or remote file inclusion attacks. It can also be tuned to block specific malicious payloads or IP addresses.
Universal SSL Certificate: Cloudflare’s Universal SSL certificate helps organizations establish trusted connections between their websites and visitors by encrypting web traffic.
Bot Management: This feature helps protect against ever-evolving threats malicious bots pose. Cloudflare Bot Management analyzes incoming requests at the edge of Cloudflare’s network to detect abnormal activity from suspicious user agents like spiders, crawlers or scrapers.
API Shield Security Suite: This suite of tools provides users with visibility into who accesses their APIs and which endpoints are exposed to potential attackers. API Shield also offers rate limiting capabilities to control access to sensitive customer data through API calls.
DNS Firewall: The DNS Firewall monitors DNS traffic with real-time threat intelligence to provide users with visibility into DNS queries made on their behalf by malware or detecting malicious domain lookups associated with phishing campaigns and other types of service abuse like DDoS botnets or zombie armies attacks targeting mail servers.
