Securing ERP with Cloudflare Access: A Brixio Case Study

Achieving Rapid Deployment and Uncompromised Security


Brixio, us, excels in delivering digital services tailored to modern business needs. We conducted internally the Cloud migration and enhanced the security of our ERP system. Brixio sought a solution that balanced stringent security with user accessibility. Our objective was to shield the system from unauthorized access without hindering the efficiency of legitimate operations.


“The main technical hurdle was integrating a secure access control layer that did not compromise the user experience. This involved creating a seamless authentication process aligned with Brixio’s IT infrastructure, while ensuring comprehensive protection”


A thorough assessment pinpointed the optimal strategy for integrating Cloudflare Access with our ERP. By deploying Cloudflare Access, we established a fortified entry point requiring stringent user authentication, seamlessly integrated with Azure AD to utilize existing credentials. This approach, bolstered by detailed policy configuration and vigilant monitoring, ensured only authorized users gained system access.
