Web Security Start-Up CloudFlare Lands $20 Million Funding Round

from http://allthingsd.com:

>>Hosted in 12 Equinix data centers around the world, it has the computing muscle to keep its customers’ sites online when a server crashes or a hacker with a botnet attacks. Pretty much anyone who operates a Web site can have it up and running in minutes. On top of its free service, CloudFlare offers a Pro account for $20 a month. A more powerful offering aimed at enterprises is coming in the fall, Prince says. But there’s more to it than just security. It turns out, through an unexpected benefit of programming, that CloudFlare also has a tendency to make sites load faster than they do from their main servers.
