question from line the Matt Markets. comes Hedberg Capital of next RBC Your with

Your line now open. is

Matt Hedberg

as you workers My Great. strong of good Matthew, well out see. exciting year. a called my to a Thanks deals for taking on quarter, really really this which questions, congrats lot really guys. is

base? I one all of the that things now usage that of penetration term. this longer we workers understand about a is maybe some out for are been at think it’s excited your years, it’s help or wondering there I’m of point, way can number you us of in sort that trends

Matthew Prince

at enormous some But down important, what’s Matt, at actually we hands XX% base. we’re most deals adopted the are the there. workers workers look of have an level. is their about we keyboards on go excitement because who that individual are amount of north that of extremely I and think who exciting developers new as enterprise market people excited see how being is include even across our customer more We still see

of things. a different So couple

year get will I I XXXX. that’s developers, us. a critical of really a which is the that milestone we milestone platform. of a to the going to course think how that that, exciting over be Workers’ We this developers through think do that clear is using have that X the for to are path you see million And

are on companies piece other to see we are being the starting think that entirely built I workers. is that

as And us and but workers, closely. is incredibly privacy-friendly company performance companies more actually bit, more example much what is and on are met it as that and tags still build acquired the a were the the that stack that flywheel They developers that on developers more only optimize Zaraz, their a meaningful whole ago, nature this. team, betting more development was where a and the pages so platforms important helpful more team. they quarters called feedback. get starting I not with worked think developers in future a involved. was of They And and workers giving again, with to their actually marketing, more create an build do way or that us are the in that makes much marketing we it companies not workers so they are out more there platform company ecosystem We a see Zaraz friendly, is that was much more which we pixels of there tools, development that’s as of startup a small secure, is whether that was built of using entirely much sort build that two

so we’re excited on about with what’s And workers. going

continuing really we’re are for seeing small. it’s – thrilled that. I think so far. in whole just that I We it’s both still exciting with early that think invest very the but days, and adoption And to And big team customers

Matt Hedberg

hear. good That’s really to

I incident, of when I think as your as you all of excited people global – talk importance positive could do LogXj guys a guess, Can that about be XXXX all what for this demand term. we look sort to driver a sort of we’re response about then, longer you understand And beyond can network? the to guess. the and a great security you I follow-up, had

Matthew Prince

really There interesting. couple things were that are of that about a

The first sometimes of is, network. censor I is what Cloudflare, underappreciated it’s scale think our the effectively

we millions vulnerability before turned is themselves What’s huge testing and geography, our of network, vulnerability. look And terms exploits that days interesting millions of we see of researchers is caught reported, that. was across of turned it anyone see able And to we of And scale. able was first were was diversity sites the exactly to comprised else data the after some that had out a the and able that actually in there. the of terms we’re size in case. in was the out were about X it very with we back out, to, how LogXj which so And that fact, the that

partner earlier traffic what bit and way I research us second of we’re the with live into we really that the So Internet trusted to is the a going think is allows things that faster. very the because see is diversity react the our us of community, on that that think to just ability have the gives in space. on And worked I visibility comes

warning which able is And in protect early this be out think least a react not and vulnerability the probably And very Workers’ a factor again, ability react roll quickly is at of our that, to quickly got were attack we and come platform, that customers. last so years. we information, And to to worst of to that then out very programmable but that allows I able response. having the of quickly we was at to a the to the X heart adapt recognize us the only having

protection free level made provide so the amongst that even our do. is very our we a thing of by to goodwill that much building because, think larger the was community call customers And right we recognized to going to customers again, And the forward. that

a security of else, best more and the that of continue fact vulnerability responsive anyone term, react to ability we’ve the I have evidence that is goodwill in need to is that than community than think, the got the sees quickly our built anyone than zero team, space. platform we’ve this the think, anyone zero that much as else, and really trusted community than able anyone speaks I the extremely the in execute in platform. to our trust else is over is and trust research what highly is And more that a sort why more of you longer else,

so, in a what I know They tailwind know of that’s the we’re we’re pan. things winning trust that not flash a and I And are Internet time. steward hear sorts the good going again, over of invest like up People fly-by-night that companies the our zero that’s these think just behind customers And be that, is part a for want overall in good a a we to ecosystem. that. this from that to business. to real security they company And think add space that

meaningful Workers of from to still, X in they think But us just is like of for break we of was programmability the how Workers which and that does we Act is sale we is hard trust win itself. middle way the sort of I think in square the are of product, build to a a because to something of that starting again, Workers, it bunch flexibility as it’s DNS, a platform that we different responsible think are a deals uptick as products. I are our it’s something DDoS, people end What the think WAF, X for and of I are from. I and those think a it sort who lot independently where much out types using up CDN, see give generate us growth coming Act of using to our are just those deals. starting to in seeing real is zero

think still, of hit stick I really curve. I think in the is X hockey that’s don’t Workers, Act and the growth point has sort

Keith Weiss

core newer a GA, if really Got as is much that the which us it. revenues, about initiatives, fast like that. obviously very Offices CapEx? understand is is impact with then, pickup of percentage how Thomas, that’s are next base top kind is of into level there, Matthew. there the that I CapEx like of super year. network help And of an having helpful, expanding talked on growing Can appreciate having That’s you revenues the or RX on associated of a some an going network you capacity, of will? you And if is will, impact you

Thomas Seifert

have the network XX% go years, revenue So, traffic. I is think you consistently the XX% that about last to for X spent if rather over of back we first answer

is also free amount side, can is true invest don’t that Offices. guidance investment fill our Cloudflare And that new over invest hope the model from XX%, ability number. Matthew you go-to-market it heard is idle talking this of for while it in have have been products behind to modest There So, business like of the this a for time. and we demand We for on the that about in a the already we slight RX I capacity it’s only – XX% the a uptick.

with expansion demand as first existing Matthew heard customers is follow the priority. we So, you

and investment hope demand. this little that follow because point we for we we ahead in of RX very guidance in that can demand Offices is There there generate. is So, little – is this at

it’s core business that it want the making eyeballs the we capacity to customers are we thoughtful be, closer that getting further about sure strategic our to moving move And the to that some out we where for more to needs prepared about larger So, be also connect. way that. network are
