What is AWS Shield?

AWS Shield provides always-on detection and automatic inline mitigations that minimize application downtime and latency, so there is no need to engage AWS Support to benefit from DDoS protection. There are two tiers of AWS Shield - Standard and Advanced. AWS Shield Standard defends against most common, frequently occurring network and transport layer DDoS attacks that target your web site or applications. In addition to the network and transport layer protections that come with Standard, AWS Shield Advanced provides additional detection and mitigation against large and sophisticated DDoS attacks as well as more features.

  • Automated mitigation techniques built in to handle common infrastructure attacks
  • Packet Filtering and priority-based traffic shaping automatically mitigates attacks with little impact to applications
  • “Pay for what you use” policies that can help keep costs down
  • AWS Shield Advanced give enhanced detection techniques against less common DDoS attacks through recourse monitoring and region-specific detection
  • Advanced attack mitigation provides more sophisticated automatic mitigations for attacks targeting applications
  • WS Shield Advanced gives admins complete visibility into DDoS attacks with near real-time notifications and detailed diagnostics on the management console
