Video: CloudFlare protects — and defends against — hackers

June 18, 2012

Security is always a concern in the cloud. With its popularity growing among major companies, cloud service providers tackle common security threats like distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) launched by attackers wanting to disrupt business. But in the case of CloudFlare, its dynamic customer base creates a unique scenario. In this video, Dan Kaplan, executive editor of SC Magazine, sits with CloudFlare co-founder and CEO Matthew Prince to discuss the impact that the company has on security, and how it both protects hackers, and defends against them. And sometimes, CloudFlare itself becomes the target.
