Rackspace Technology and Cloudflare team up on managed edge security solution

On average, it takes an organization 206 days to detect a breach. Customers also ask how to ensure the end-user experience is optimized and secure. It can be challenging to implement effective security measures to maintain PCI compliance in websites and applications without sacrificing the overall site performance and experience. On top of all of this, IT modernization timelines are only accelerating in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and new security threats are emerging seemingly daily.


The common thread among these challenges is the need for expert cloud security support to help businesses reduce their risk and provide users with an optimal web and mobile application experience. That’s why we are enhancing our ongoing partnership with Cloudflare® to provide a new Edge Security solution combined with Rackspace expert support, for an enterprise-class security service businesses can rely on.

This new enterprise-class Cloudflare Edge Security solution includes a web application firewall (WAF), DDoS protection, DNS services and a global content delivery network (CDN) — all backed by 24x7x365 support from our certified security experts. We will help get your Cloudflare services up and running, in addition to ongoing support to assist with fine-tuning or environment changes around-the-clock. We also offer expert consultative services to help with custom deployments of advanced policies and features, including bot or SSL management, load balancing, rate limiting, analytics and more.
