Cloudflare announces “Spectrum”

by

April 14, 2018

 

We personally think that Cloudflare’s particularly groovy when it comes to the services they offer. Their recent Spectrum announcement makes them even more so.

Spectrum extends Cloudflare’s benefits beyond web protocols to protect and accelerate email servers, gaming servers, IoT devices, and anything else that connects to the Internet.

The benefits of Spectrum include:

  • Protect everything from DDoS attacks. Many critical services like email and proprietary enterprise applications can now be protected from large DDoS attacks that would otherwise make these important services unreachable.
  • Encryption of legacy protocols and applications. Many legacy protocols used by enterprises still do not support encrypted communications. With Spectrum, enterprises can send traffic over an encrypted connection.
  • Enhanced performance. Faster TLS, optimized network routing, and high speed interconnection mean services behind Spectrum are often faster than they were on the native Internet.

Check out their announcement here to learn a little bit more. We’ll be digging in ourselves over the next couple weeks with a more in depth review, so stay tuned.
