Internet and security company Cloudflare DNS have announced that they have launched a new office in Munich, Germany. With this office, Cloudflare aims to boost their brand awareness, acquire enterprise customers in the region and strengthen their team at the new hub to further DACH (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) presence.
According to Cloudflare, European enterprises are growing mature with respect to network security, DNS systems and cloud regions. They say that these enterprises leverage on widespread global infrastructures (mainly point-of-presence) to accelerate their network speeds.
By launching their Munich office, Cloudflare say that they will be fortifying the DACH region and help them further expand their presence across Europe. They claim that Cloudflare will be leveraging their network across Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Munich, Zurich, and Vienna.
Speaking about the move, Matthew Prince, co-founder & CEO at Cloudflare, commented:
Germany has the largest national economy in Europe and the fourth-largest by nominal GDP in the world. As Cloudflare considered locations for its second European office, Munich, a hub of technology innovation and business, seemed like an obvious choice.
Opening an office in Munich presents a unique opportunity to be closer to our customers in the fast-growing DACH market.
Cloudflare say that their Cloudflare DNS will provide safe logging, agile security controls and powerful centralized management to take care of worldwide networks. They also say believe that customers deploy Cloudflare DNS since it is not only easy to use but also gives quick service at all times.
Stefan Henke, Head of DACH at Cloudflare, commented:
Although digitalization started late in the DACH region, it is now booming across all verticals and there is huge demand for Cloudflare’s services.
Cloudflare is able to protect, accelerate, and optimize anything connected to the Internet and is also able to shift computing functions to the edge of the public network as an edge network vendor.
In closing, the internet and security company also said that this new hub will be joining their other offices in London, California, New York and Washington DC. It will be interesting to see how Cloudflare DNS makes the most out of this move, following the launch of their domain registration services.
