Expecting a treat :chocolate_bar:, I was really excited to read about Chocolatey on Cloudflare.

Sure, I was not disappointed at all to learn that Chocolatey doesn’t worry about unexpected bandwidth costs by using Cloudflare. Equally excited to learn that Chocolatey is the package manager for Microsoft Windows, an open source and commercial tool with a community package repository. OK, a sweet treat indeed.

The leading media house for business and financial information in Germany, the Handelsblatt Media Group (HMG) regularly faces concerted online attacks from hostile actors — and before moving to Cloudflare, they were causing major issues.

If you do any shopping online, there’s a good chance you’ve transacted with a store on Shopify, which is why the Canadian-headquartered company is worth over $40 billion. Rather than build out its own globally-distributed network footprint — which would necessitate large investments in infrastructure, expertise, and time — Shopify opted to join Cloudflare’s global network.

India’s largest ticketing company, BookMyShow, is using Cloudflare to improve its security, performance, reliability, and still deliver an excellent customer experience even with traffic bursts of up to 50 gigabits per second.

When Optimizely heard about Cloudflare’s new Workers platform, it realized there was an opportunity to develop a robust new implementation of its experimentation platform — one that would still be easy for its customers to install, but that doesn’t come with the same tradeoffs in performance. Read the whole story…

Replicated would lose hours every week from engineers troubleshooting their local environments. When a front end engineer (who wasn’t expected to be a Kubernetes expert) would have issues, they’d need to pair and get help from a backend engineer; consuming not just one but two people’s valuable time.

They needed something better…cue Cloudflare! Read more…

This is a really timely story to share. What makes Holtmeyer & Monson’s situation highly relevant to many businesses today is that its team has always been distributed. Stephen Webb, H&M’s director of IT, explains how he thinks about his team’s security posture in a world where legacy approaches don’t fit, while meeting the strict regulatory requirements of the financial industry. “Our whole team is remote, working from home offices. We don’t have a server room with hardware firewall appliances, and it wouldn’t really make sense to have one. So I’m always looking for ways to keep our team more secure and harden their connections, wherever they are.” Continue to find out more about Holtmeyer & Monson.

Launched by Jim VandeHei, Roy Schwartz and Mike Allen in 2017, Axios is an American news website that produces short, bullet point-laden articles designed to capture attention and educate quickly. The strategy is working: the site saw more than 19 million visits in January 2020, while more than half a million subscribers receive one or more of their newsletters on topics like politics, sports, business, technology, and the world. But, that’s not without risks, “High news consumption and surges in traffic from breaking news means that media companies are constantly at risk or under a DDoS attack,” says Jess Szmajda, Chief Technology Officer at Axios.

Back in 2015, Cloudflare’s approach to authentication looked similar to many other companies: all of Cloudflare’s internally-hosted applications were reached via a hardware-based VPN. A small team of Cloudflare engineers started wondering: why was a cloud network security company relying on clunky on-premise hardware? They thought we could do better. And thus, Cloudflare Access was born. Cloudflare Access is a much saner approach. Read more to find out why.
