Paul & Matt

The alliance will focus on modernizing IT infrastructures by streamlining connectivity to multiple clouds and data centers, while providing robust network security.

To enable enterprises to migrate and manage networks for multi-cloud connectivity and comprehensive network security, Kyndryl has announced an expansion of its partnership with Cloudflare. The partnership combines Kyndryl’s end-to-end consulting services and expertise across enterprise networking, security, and resiliency, with Cloudflare’s robust connectivity cloud that offers security, performance, and cloud flexibility all-in-one.

Kyndryl and Cloudflare first partnered in May 2023 to modernize enterprise infrastructure with end-to-end services, bringing managed WAN-as-a-Service and Cloudflare Zero Trust to the entire corporate network. Now Cloudflare’s capabilities will be activated across Kyndrly’s practice areas including Network & Edge and Security & Resilience.

“Together with Cloudflare, we are enabling enterprises to migrate to next-generation networks and capitalize on advanced cloud features to achieve greater agility and innovation. We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Cloudflare, an industry leader in cloud networking and Zero Trust. With Kyndryl’s expert managed and consulting services, we will be helping our joint customers secure, streamline, and simplify their IT infrastructure, all while reducing costs and improving operational efficiencies,” said Paul Savill, Global Practice Leader of Networking and Edge Compute, Kyndryl. 

“Since partnering with Kyndryl, we have been able to scale Cloudflare’s services at a new level. Our Global Strategic Alliance can support any enterprise now across their entire network stack, regardless of where they stand in their cloud journey,” said Matt Harrell, Global Head of Channels and Alliances, Cloudflare.
The two companies will provide enterprises with leading global network capabilities needed for flexible work environments, including reducing tech debt and legacy architecture. Kyndryl will advise and assist enterprises in managing their IT infrastructure as they evolve their networks and transfer workloads into Cloudflare’s connectivity cloud.

As testament to the partnership, Cloudflare has helped Kyndryl transform its network services and provide cloud cybersecurity protection, including DDoS mitigation. Cloudflare currently protects Kyndryl Internet properties, with Kyndryl operating on a self-service model including the ability to make changes seamlessly throughout the transformation without incurring additional charges.
