Cloudflare Access for 3rd-party access

Hi,

I was wondering about the pricing model for Cloudflare Access since it was incorporated into the “Zero Trust” product suite.

We wanted to use Cloudflare Access to give federated access to users outside of the organisation, and we found the pricing to be quite steep for that matter.

Is there a way to use Cloudflare Access as a forward-authentication proxy for any type of user without having to pay $7 per user?

Kind regards,
