Introducing Cloudflare Access: Like BeyondCorp, But You Don’t Have To Be A Google Employee To Use…

A few years ago, Google pioneered a solution for their own employees called BeyondCorp. Instead of keeping their internal applications on the intranet, they made them accessible on the internet. There became no concept of in or outside the network. The network wasn’t some fortified citadel, everything was on the internet, and no connections were trusted. Everyone had to prove they are who they say they are.

Cloudflare’s mission has always been to democratize the tools of the internet giants. Today we are launching Cloudflare Access: a perimeter-less access control solution for cloud and on-premise applications. It’s like BeyondCorp, but you don’t have to be a Google employee to use it.
