(NYSE: NET), the security, performance and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, today published its second annual impact report that demonstrates its commitment to helping build a principled Internet accessible to all. tone set , and sustainable. Cloudflare began publicly reporting information about its environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts in 2021. This year, the company focused on expanding the value and reach of Cloudflare’s Impact programs; support humanitarian and human rights causes, especially helping to protect Ukrainians’ access to the Internet by protecting against DDoS and other cyber attacks; and examine how the company calculates and validates emissions data.

“Cloudflare has built a team of employees dedicated to providing real, positive impact for the millions of users of our services and the billions of internet users who influence our decisions,” said Matthew Prince, Cloudflare co-founder and CEO. “In 2022, the company took action to help protect people in Ukraine, ensure a fair and credible mid-term election so cybersecurity was not a headline, and contribute to the development of privacy-enhancing protocols that will go far beyond our customers ripple Whatever next year brings, we will be ready to continue to ensure that the internet is accessible, safe and reliable for everyone.”

Highlights of the 2022 Cloudflare Impact Report include:

  • Aid to Ukraine: Cloudflare moved quickly to provide free services and support to the Ukrainian government and infrastructure providers. In addition to protecting the .ua TLD, Cloudflare currently protects approximately 130 Ukrainian government and infrastructure domains, as well as providing free assistance to 79 Ukrainian nonprofit groups that help refugees, document war crimes, share information, and provide local services.
  • Give back to the internet: Rate Limiting, a tool that helps defend against bots and a variety of attacks, is available to all customers, including on the free plan. The open beta of Turnstile provides a more seamless and accessible method for any website owner to confirm that visitors are real people without relying on CAPTCHA. In October 2022, we announced that, as a beta service, all websites and APIs served by Cloudflare will support post-quantum hash key agreement.
  • Democratizing access to Zero Trust: The shift to remote work has further complicated all organizations’ abilities to defend against attacks, protect against attacks, and maintain visibility and security controls into how users move and store data across cloud environments. To further support vulnerable nonprofits, independent journalists, and election administrators, Project Galileo and Athenian Project participants now receive free access to Cloudflare’s suite of Zero Trust protections. A new Impact initiative, Project Safekeeping, provides free Zero Trust security to small and medium critical infrastructure around the world.
  • Engineering Privacy on the Internet: Cloudflare this year pioneered the implementation of numerous technologies designed to ensure that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and other network observers cannot track websites that their subscribers visit. Privacy Gateway builds on those efforts by transmitting encrypted data packets through our servers to hide user IP addresses. In 2022, we partnered with a period tracker app to enable Privacy Gateway to prevent the ISP and app from associating individual IP addresses with the tracker.
  • Protect 2,150 vulnerable organizations against an average of 57.9 million cyber threats per day: Founded in 2014, Cloudflare’s Project Galileo provides free cybersecurity protection to qualified public interest groups such as artists, advocates, humanitarian organizations, and the voices of political dissent who face cyber threats in disproportionate numbers.
  • Securing Small Businesses: Small businesses don’t always have the budget for security services; as of December 2022, we identified millions of free accounts responsible for approximately 70 billion requests across the Cloudflare network in 2022. That’s $7 million worth of content delivery network services they received for free.
  • Cloudflare services deliver significant emissions savings: Preliminary findings from an upcoming study by Analysys Mason estimate that Cloudflare’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) “generate up to approximately 90% less carbon than on-premises devices at low-medium traffic demand.”
