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. The ad network TripleLift added Firebolt on the Time Inc. properties it served and ads loaded six times faster. In April 2017, Cloudflare launched Orbit, an internet-of-things product that adds additional security to connected devices. Orbit protects more than 120 million IoT devices. The company has headquarters in San Francisco, but has locations in London, Austin, Singapore, and Washington, D.C.
