Secure Internal Applications


Enforcing Granular User Access to Internal Applications

Say goodbye to using a VPN to access internal resources.
Securing internal applications for remote employees and contractors is:

  • Cumbersome to deploy and maintain

  • Missing granular access controls

  • Slow for users on mobile devices

  • Employees and contractors often need access to specific, sensitive internal applications when working outside the corporate firewall.

Customers have typically tried to solve this problem by deploying a VPN or by using basic authentication on whitelisted IP addresses. These types of approaches have challenges maintaining, deploying and enforcing user access policies. They lack granular application access controls. Authenticating users by identity is difficult or non-existent. And user experience is slow, especially for those on mobile devices.

This is where Cloudflare shines. No more VPN’s taking up resources. Thanks for Cloudflare you can now completely restrcit access to any application and only provide access to specific people using a number of identity providers.

Cloudflare Access protects internal resources by securing, authenticating and monitoring access per-user and by application. With Cloudflare Access, only authenticated users with the required permissions are able to access specific resources behind the Cloudflare edge. Support for existing identity providers such as GSuite and Okta ensures the right users have easy and instant access regardless of physical location. By enforcing access rules at the edge, Cloudflare reduces latency for users.

Control User Access to Applications

Enforce access to specific applications on a per-user basis with easy-to-create and manage rules. Adding and removing access to applications doesn’t require adding one-off groups or creating extra user accounts. Easily change access policies from the dashboard or API.

Setup requires a Cloudflare paid plan and a subscription. Configure access to any number of endpoints easily and quickly and provide access to those you pre-configure.
