BUI has joined Cloudflare's Partner Programme as an Enterprise Partner.

Cloudflare is a leading Web performance and security company that runs one of the largest networks in the world. Based in San Francisco, California, Cloudflare's mission is to speed up and protect Web sites, e-commerce stores, SaaS products, mobile applications, APIs and other properties connected to the Internet.

With this partnership, BUI becomes an authorised reseller of Cloudflare's cutting-edge suite of services.

"We're excited to collaborate with Cloudflare to provide our own clients with services that further secure their environments," says BUI Managing Director Ryan Roseveare.

Security and speed are critical for successful business operations in today's digital economy, and Roseveare believes Cloudflare's commitments in both areas mirror BUI's own. "We investigated several vendors, as well as traditional technology providers, in this space. We chose to team up with Cloudflare because it's a market leader with a cost-effective solution that complements our deep cloud security model."

Cloudflare's security services are designed to mitigate DDoS attacks, prevent data breaches and block malicious Web traffic. "We're going to be able to offer our clients reliable and redundant solutions with security in mind for their cloud, hybrid and on-premises requirements," explains Roseveare, adding that Cloudflare's technology is easy to integrate and simple to scale.

Cloudflare serves data from more than 150 international data centres, including three on South African soil. The company opened its Johannesburg data centre in 2014 and facilities in Cape Town and Durban followed in May 2017 and March 2018, respectively. Roseveare is confident that Cloudflare's SA footprint will translate into tangible performance benefits for BUI's local clients. "We've completed several proof of concept demos and deployments already," he says.

As an Enterprise Partner, BUI has gained a powerful new set of tools to protect its customers' Web-based ecosystems. "Our staff are always on the leading edge, always innovating," concludes Roseveare. "We're looking forward to designing and deploying tailored Cloudflare solutions for our clients."
