Tech Reports

Cloudflare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), the security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, today announced it has increased its network footprint in Australia and New Zealand, opening four data centres in the past 12 months in Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, and Christchurch.

Now bringing its network to a total of nine cities in ANZ, Cloudflare is delivering a faster, more secure, and more reliable Internet experience to users and businesses anywhere in the region.

Raymond Maisano, Head of ANZ at Cloudflare says “The closer we bring our network to every person in Australia and New Zealand, the faster we can deliver local content to websites, applications, and corporate networks.”

“Opening four additional data centres across the region furthers our mission of providing faster, secure, private, and reliable Internet for all,” said Raymond Maisano, Head of ANZ at Cloudflare,”said Maisano

With greater Internet usage comes greater risk, and while Australia and New Zealand make up a small portion of the world’s population, the countries are targeted by a relatively larger number of cyber attacks.

Over the 2020–21 financial year, cybercrime reports in Australia increased by nearly 13 percent—equating to one report of a cyber attack every 8 minutes—and a higher proportion were categorised by the ACSC as ‘substantial’ in impact.

In New Zealand, reports of criminal or financially motivated actors increased by a similar percentage. Through these additional data centres and its extensive partner network, Cloudflare can better fulfil its role.

Cloudflare has had a longstanding presence in ANZ, first expanding its network to Sydney in 2012.

Today, Cloudflare’s global network spans more than 270 cities in more than 100 countries.

With millions of Internet properties on Cloudflare’s network, the company already has many customers in ANZ, including Kathmandu and Rip Curl.
