Web performance company Cloudflare raises $150 million ahead of rumored IPO | VentureBeat
Founded in 2009, Cloudflare offers a range of services to help companies reduce latencies. Offerings include distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack mitigation and a content delivery network (CDN) — a global network of proxy servers and datacenters that ensures content is delivered to users from locations closest to them.
Reports emerged last year that Cloudflare was considering an IPO for the first half of 2019, one that could value the startup at more than $3.5 billion. This latest funding round suggests the company isn’t as close to going public as those reports suggested, but it does perhaps indicate that Cloudflare is pursuing an aggressive growth spurt ahead of a public offering in the not-too-distant future.

Never mind that just recently, 3 mass murderers bragged about their exploits on this social media forum before they committed their deadly, murderous deeds.
