Cloudflare

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Cloudflare offers its customers internet security while also ensuring website users have an efficient and infallible interactive experience. Its mission is "to build a better internet.” The company first began as “Project Honey Pot,” an initiative spearheaded by Matthew Prince and Lee Holloway in 2004 meant to address the root issues of email spam. After realizing the project’s potential to offer more effective internet services, the company quickly grew into what it is today. In January 2017, Cloudflare introduced Accelerated Mobile Links, an alternative to Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages that similarly sped up mobile web browsing but offered more support to publishers by letting them retain their own visitor traffic. In another bid to improve the business of digital publishers, Cloudflare debuted Firebolt in May 2017, speeding ad load times and reducing the threat of malware ads. In late 2017, it also introduced its Athenian Project to shield U.S. state and local election and voter registration systems from digital attacks free of charge. In April 2018, it launched an encrypted Domain Name Service that lets internet users quickly and securely look up the addresses of online servers.
