Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other web attacks can affect your application’s availability, compromise its security, and consume excessive resources. AWS Shield and AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF) help secure your applications from these types of attacks. AWS Shield is a managed DDoS protection service that offers always-on detection and automatic inline mitigation to minimize application downtime and latency. AWS WAF is a web application firewall that helps protect your applications from common web exploits such as SQLi, XSS, and botnets. This introductory tech talk will provide you an overview and demonstration of these services.
