"Clouldflare DDoS Protection"

What do you like best?

Cloudflare DDoS Protection protects our website from unwanted downtimes which can be caused due to DDoS Attack. DDoS attacks are uncalled for and nobody expects when they come. So instead of having own servers for that, we can directly use this one click DDoS protection which makes our life really easy.

What do you dislike?

Well, nothing in particular. They give what they can give in free plan!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend as Cloudflare has pretty good plans even for its free customers!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The site downtime is saved due to DDoS protection. This saves us a lot of time and money because a site can cause lots of loss if its down and cannot be accessed by the customers. So this is the main problem being solved due to this. Also, load balancing and other similar things which are provided solve many problems!!

"The best and free Anti DDoS platform on the web"

What do you like best?

It protects all our servers and websites about any ddos problems, as Layer7 and Layer4 DDoS attacks.

The protection is constantly on and as soon as you get an attack it tries to stop it as fast as possible, if it is not possible you can increase the security and it will be required to make a captcha to access the service.

It has an incredible network and nodes in every place of the world, that makes your servers faster accesibility accross the complete globe.

What do you dislike?

Right now i dont have any type of dislike of this service, all it has to offer it meets all the spectatives you need.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a website or server that has experimented downtimes due to DDoS attacks you should give CloudFlare a try and you should experience no downtimes. Its a great product and has great support behind it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a website and some servers that people can access. Before we used this service our network had severe downtimes due to DDoS problems but when we implanted this service the downtimes went down and from that day to today we had 99,99%% of uptime in our services. It helps a lot, and if you have a little website you can protect it with their free plan.

What Cloud DDoS Mitigation solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent CDN / DDoS Protection"

What do you like best?

CloudFlare is simple to setup and use. It provides real protection from DDoS by using a whole other network to serve your content. That network is super fast and secure, and in return your content it fast and secure.

What do you dislike?

There is a lot of competition, but CloudFlare holds its own for features and pricing. There is really nothing to dislike about the offerings, except since it is so popular, the service itself is under attack and if the service goes down, so does your content.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use the trial and test everything. The service integrates seamlessly into most infrastructures as a CDN and front-line DDoS protection.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Very fast and reliable access to my content. It ensures that my content will be available for all users around the world, despite DDoS and other issues faced by my web host.

"Best DDoS protection Available For Small Businesses"

What do you like best?

Cloudflare DDoS protection was basically free and a great help for keeping our website safe in the initial stages of the business. they got tons of features available and along with the forever free plan with no bandwidth limit, you also get the chance to use premium features like REST API. their servers are also spread across the globe and which helps the speed and keeps the site up almost all the time.

What do you dislike?

cons, huh! well as the business grew we needed more premium features to take our website further, but unfortunately its a bit costly than what we've expected. also, thou the website is up almost all the time speed of the Cloudflare servers can vary and we've received multiple emails stating the issue from the visitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

cloudflare is one of the best DDoS protection out there for you if you can afford then go for the commercial plan.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Website safety and a better experience for the visitors

"The best and free Anti DDoS platform"

What do you like best?

CloudFlare operates a highly-available global content delivery network that has security measures built into every layer and regularly clocks in lightning-fast speeds.

The concept of combining web security and performance enhancing into a CDN is relatively new and there aren’t many products that offer both of these features. CloudFlare speeds up your website and protects it from security threats.

What do you dislike?

Right now i dont have any type of dislike of this service, all it has to offer it meets all the our need.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Your site's security is not an option,you'll lose a lot if you don't pay attention to this critical issue.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a website and some servers that people can access. Before we used this service our network had severe downtimes due to DDoS problems but when we implanted this service the downtimes went down and from that day to today we had 99%% of uptime in our services. It helps a lot, and if you have a little website you can protect it with their free plan.

"Keep you site secured against ddos attacks"

What do you like best?

The great thing about cloudflare's ddos service is that it does not require you to purchase or install hardware or software. When you purchase the plan, simply change the DNS to reroute traffic through CloudFlare’s servers.

What do you dislike?

They don't offer you a free trial for the ddos service so that you can't give it a try before purchasing it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keeping you site secured really matters, pay some extra bucks to protect your site against ddos attacks and others using cloudflare's ddos service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The service is capable of handling large scale ddos attacks. Operating only on the cloud, you can activate the service immediately for ddos protection.

"Perfect"

What do you like best?

Cloudflare's DDoS Protection service greatly reduces the needs for any small publisher to worry about DDoS attacks. When you are limited in the time, and resources you can rely on a service such as Cloudflare to manage your security with a fairly simplified dashboard that provides a welcomed user experience.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, most of the Cloudflare protection and security services are great, my only gripe would be that sometimes I have been alerted to false positives in some of their services by remote employees when their IPs were not whitelisted.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary business problem was easy security management. As I mentioned a small business doesn't always have the time or resources to dedicate to every need all the time and a service like this provides a way to be on prepared for multiple types of security intrusions.

Not much honestly! Just solid tools all around and they keep getting better.

Site speed, offsite redundancy, protection against attacks. Is that enough? 🙃🙃🙃
