CloudFlare Takes SXSW by Storm, Appearing on Four Interactive Panels

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 9, 2012) - (SXSW) - CloudFlare, the web performance and security company that sees more traffic than Twitter, Wikipedia, Amazon, Zynga, and AOL combined, makes its 2012 debut at SXSW on four Interactive panels.

CloudFlare Co-founders Matthew Prince, Michelle Zatlyn and Lee Holloway are heading up three panels, and CloudFlare Developer, Chris Joel will contribute to a fourth. The four panels tell a synopsis of the CloudFlare story, ranging from Michelle's panel on female entrepreneurship, Matthew's presentation on LulzSec and hacktivism, Chris' panel on the latest in web performance, and Lee covering the infrastructure growing pains of a Valley startup. The CloudFlare team is a bunch of SXSW newbies, so we're looking forward to learning the ropes from the rest of the tech community.
