How it works
Once you , Cloudflare runs regular security scans on the infrastructure associated with your Cloudflare account. These scans perform a series of checks on your Cloudflare account settings and on the configurations of different Cloudflare products for the domains in your Cloudflare account.
The performed checks take into account a set of ideal product configurations and states that indicate a good security posture. If your current configuration does not meet this ideal configuration for one or more checks, the Security Center will report these situations as Security Insights.
The list of insights may include potential security threats, vulnerabilities, compliance risks, insecure configurations, or any other identified risks.
Each insight will have the following properties assigned to them:
- Severity: The security risk of the insight. The severity values are: Moderate, High, and Critical.
- Insight: The insight description detailing the current configuration that is causing the risk or vulnerability.
- Risk: A description of the risk associated with not addressing the issue.
- Type: The insight category.
Once you enable Security Insights, Cloudflare performs scans at the below frequency, according to your plan type:
|Accounts with a Pro, Business or Enterprise Zone||Daily||Yes|
|Accounts with a Teams Standard or Enterprise plan||Daily||Yes|
|All other accounts||Every three days||No|
