KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 11 -- Cloudflare Inc, the security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, announced it has acquired Vectrix, a company that provides businesses one-click visibility and control across all of their SaaS applications.
Vectrix enhances Cloudflare’s existing Zero Trust platform, Cloudflare One, by allowing security teams to scan third-party tools–including Google Workspace, GitHub, and AWS–to detect and mitigate issues such as inappropriate file sharing and user permission misconfigurations.
“Tens of thousands of organisations rely on Cloudflare One’s Zero Trust platform to keep their teams and data secure,” said co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Cloudflare, Matthew Prince in a statement.
“Cloudflare’s global network blocks attempts to compromise data at multiple levels while accelerating traffic to the Internet. We’re excited to welcome the Vectrix team to Cloudflare to help deliver the fastest, most secure, and robust Zero Trust platform for the enterprise.”
Meanwhile, co-founder and CEO of Vectrix, Corey Mahan said: “Everyone uses SaaS applications, from sending emails to managing HR, but simply ticking the wrong box can leave a business’ critical data exposed.
“By combining Vectrix's API first approach with the scale of Cloudflare’s Zero Trust platform we’re able to give customers an easy and simple way to control how data from those applications are shared.”
Integrating Vectrix’s API-driven cloud access security broker (CASB) with Cloudflare One provides enterprises with comprehensive Zero Trust control of both data-at-rest and data-in-transit.
Vectrix extends the security of Cloudflare’s network to the data stored in SaaS applications, giving customers a single control plane for the security of their workforce and mission-critical resources.
