2015. Website protection service CloudFlare gets $110M from Google, Microsoft and others
CloudFlare, the global CDN and DNS provider that can speed up and protect any site online, has secured a $110 million round of private financing, led by Fidelity, and participated in by a cadre of technology giants, including Baidu, Google, Microsoft and Qualcomm. A profitable company that is, at the same time, looking into international expansion might seem odd. CloudFlare is. The firm has grown incredibly quickly, helping it to attract the capital that it needs. CloudFlare’s partnership with and investment from Baidu has allowed the startup to enter the exploding Chinese market. Encouraged by Baidu’s interest, CloudFlare turned to key U.S. companies it felt would help the startup expand in key areas. Qualcomm was CloudFlare’s answer to chips and mobile, while Microsoft held the key to enterprise customers. By partnering with Google Capital, CloudFlare is able to build on its existing partnership with the search giant.
2015. Cisco acquires cloud security company OpenDNS
Cisco announced its intent to buy cloud security company OpenDNS for $635 million. OpenDNS gives Cisco, a network vendor that offers more traditional network edge protection, a Software as a Service vendor that provides security on the move to any device, anywhere, anytime. The purchase builds on Cisco’s strategy to add a cloud security layer. OpenDNS works by simply blocking bad traffic and allowing good traffic to flow, thereby acting as a protective layer between the user and the Internet, Ulevitch explained at the time. Cisco has indicated it will continue to offer the free version of OpenDNS. “The OpenDNS free DNS services will not be affected. Cisco is committed to OpenDNS’ consumer and enterprise DNS services. The OpenDNS products will transition into Cisco upon close of the acquisition,” a spokesperson said.
2015. Cloud application delivery platform Instart Logic raises $43M
Instart Logic, a service that helps businesses speed up the delivery of their cloud applications, has raised a $43 million funding. Unlike traditional content delivery networks, which typically work best for static files, Instart Logic focuses on speeding up applications. It does in part by splitting applications in small chunks instead of large single downloads. The service then sends the important parts first so the users can quickly interact with a site while the rest continues to download in the background. Like similar services, it also optimizes image sizes, formats and compression settings to optimize static assets.
2014. Website protection service CloudFlare activates free Universal SSL encryption
CloudFlare, which provides content delivery and anti-DDoS services, announced the rollout of “Universal SSL”. It will provide protected “https” connections for users of around two million websites – apparently doubling the number of SSL-protected websites out there. The move will allow CloudFlare to more broadly support the Google SPDY protocol for speeding up webpage delivery, as this protocol requires an encrypted connection. Site administrators should also see their ranking improve on Google Search, which now takes encryption into account as a ranking signal. A couple of weeks ago, CloudFlare also revealed a new extension to the TLS security protocol called Keyless SSL. This feature, available to CloudFlare’s enterprise business plans, aims to help firms handling sensitive data get the benefits of content delivery services such as CloudFlare without parting company with their SSL keys.
