CloudFlare Threat Management

CloudFlare Threat Management allows you to manage all banning, unbanning, and clearing of IP addresses across your entire CloudFlare account.

CloudFlare Threat Management allows you to manage all banning, unbanning, and clearing of IP addresses at a CloudFlare level. CloudFlare Threat Management also intergrates with popular WordPress security plugins such as WordFence.

Set up is easy. Enter the email which you use to login to CloudFlare.com & your API key found here. Once you save that information into CloudFlare Threat Management, you'll be able to specify a list of IP address to blacklist (ban), whitelist (never ban) and clear (remove from CloudFlare completely).

It's important to note that any changes you do while using CloudFlare Threat Management populate across your entire CloudFlare account. This means that if you have 50 domains registered under your CloudFlare account, and you ban a single IP address, that address is banned across all 50 domains. This is extremely helpful if you know the IP addresses are malicious and that you never want them to access your websites.

CloudFlare Threat Management plays well with other plugins such as WordFence. For example, you can at your leisure, ban all currently locked out IP addresses from WordFence, or even ban all IP addresses which have ever been locked out via WordFence. This means that if you got hit with a brute force attack with bots trying to login to your admin control panel, you can in one click, ban all the IP addresses which were locked out by WordFence.

The advantage of this is two fold:

  • First, WordFence only allows locking a user out for a maximum of 60 days, whereas a CloudFlare ban is permanent.
  • Second, by doing it this way, you take a large load off of your server. If you are getting hit by dozens (or hundreds!) of bots per second, and you successfully ban these bots, they will never even hit your server. They will try, but get stopped by CloudFlare, thereby putting 0 additional load on your server.
