A STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
We’ve teamed up with a global innovator to boost our range of security solutions
Ever heard of Cloudflare? It’s a web performance and security company on a mission to speed up and protect websites, ecommerce stores, SaaS products, mobile applications, APIs, and other properties connected to the Internet.
It’s also our newest ally.
Security and speed are critical for successful business operations in today’s digital economy, and our managing director, Ryan Roseveare, believes Cloudflare’s commitments in both areas mirror BUI’s own. “We investigated several vendors, as well as traditional technology providers, in this space. We chose to team up with Cloudflare because it’s a market leader with a cost-effective solution that complements our deep cloud security model.”
Cloudflare’s security services are designed to mitigate DDoS attacks, prevent data breaches, and block malicious web traffic. “We’re going to be able to offer our clients reliable and redundant solutions with security in mind for their cloud, hybrid, and on-premises requirements,” says Roseveare.
Cloudflare serves data from more than 150 international data centres, including three on South African soil. The company opened its Johannesburg data centre in 2014 and facilities in Cape Town and Durban followed in May 2017 and March 2018, respectively.
Roseveare is confident that Cloudflare’s SA footprint will translate into tangible performance benefits for BUI’s local clients. “We’ve completed several proof of concept demos and deployments already,” he says.

As an Enterprise Partner, BUI is an authorised reseller of Cloudflare’s cutting-edge suite of services.
