CloudFlare Apps: Making Web Applications Fast, Safe and One-Click Simple

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - CloudFlare, the web performance and security company, today announced CloudFlare Apps, a service that makes installing web applications fast, safe and one-click simple. Prior to CloudFlare Apps, using web applications required a website owner to change their code and, potentially, decrease performance and increase security risks.

CloudFlare Apps allow web applications to be activated through CloudFlare without requiring code changes. CloudFlare works with the application providers to ensure CloudFlare Apps perform as well as possible and do not create conflicts with other code. CloudFlare Apps are automatically updated to the latest version without the website owner needing to make a change.

"With CloudFlare Apps, site owners can now focus on adding new features without needing additional development time or worrying about security and performance," said Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of CloudFlare. "We're excited to be working with leading web application providers to create a marketplace where apps can be installed with ease and confidence."

Announced today at TechCrunch Disrupt New York City, CloudFlare Apps (www.cloudflare.com/apps) will roll out starting June 1 with applications from:

  • VigLink (affiliate links)
  • Clicky (real-time website analytics)
  • Apture (contextual search)
  • Smartling (language translation)
  • Monitis (site and server monitoring)
  • UserVoice (customer engagement tools)
  • Pingdom (website uptime monitoring)
  • SnapEngage (live chat)
  • ExceptionHub (JavaScript error tracking)
  • Zoompf (web performance scanning)
  • Typekit (web fonts)
  • GlobalSign HackAlert (malware detection)
  • WatchMouse (site performance monitoring)
  • TRUSTe (privacy seal)
  • Haileo (video and image advertising)
  • Skimlinks (affiliate links)
  • StopTheHacker (malware detection)
  • Google Analytics (website analytics)
  • Google Webmaster Central (website validation)

CloudFlare began testing the Apps concept more than a year ago by allowing web administrators to install Google Analytics with a single click. BroadbandForum.in administrator Sushubh Mittal said, "Google Analytics integration is genius." Positive feedback from these tests led CloudFlare to work with leading web application providers for the launch of CloudFlare Apps.
