Coronavirus emergency

Program for coronavirus emergency

We know that organizations and individuals around the world depend on Cloudflare and our network.

We recognize that this emergency has put a strain on the infrastructure of companies around the world as more employees work from home. On Monday, Cloudflare made our Cloudflare for Teams product, which helps support secure and efficient remote work, free for small businesses through September 1.

As the severity of the emergency has become clearer over the course of this week, we decided to extend this offer to help any business, regardless of size. The healthy functioning of our economy globally depends on work continuing to get done, even as people need to do that work remotely. If Cloudflare can do anything to help ensure that happens, we believe it is our duty to do so.

If you are already a Cloudflare for Teams customer, we have removed the caps on usage during this emergency so you can scale to whatever number of seats you need without additional cost through September 1, 2020. If you are not yet using Cloudflare for Teams, and if you or your employer are struggling with limits on the capacity of your existing VPN or Firewall, we stand ready to help and have removed the limits on the free trials of our Access and Gateway products through September 1, 2020. Cloudflare employees around the world have volunteered to run onboarding sessions so you can get setup quickly and can ensure your business’ continuity.

How to get started

  • You can start using Access immediately using this guide.

When I add Access to my account, how many seats should I input?

  • Select a Premium plan with 5 seats. This plan will be free.
  • As part of the program, Cloudflare Access will not enforce seat limits. You can continue to use more than 5 seats, though the UI might indicate you have 5 licenses in some places.

What happens on September 1st?

  • Unless the program is extended, Cloudflare for Teams will return to a paid model. There will be no commitment to continue using the product.

Cloudflare reserves the right to discontinue this promotion at any time.
