The transaction allows Cloudflare to integrate Area 1’s technology with its global network to create the most complete Zero Trust security platform available.

“Email is the largest cyber attack vector on the Internet, which makes integrated email security critical to any true Zero Trust network. That’s why today we’re welcoming Area 1 Security to help make Cloudflare’s platform the clear leader in Zero Trust,” said Matthew Prince, CEO of Cloudflare. “Together, we expect we’ll be delivering the fastest, most effective, and most reliable email security on the market.”
