Azure DDoS Protection – Generally Available
Date updated: 19 April 2018
Azure DDoS Protection is protecting publicly accessible endpoints from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. DDoS attacks are one of the largest availability threats that face cloud services today. The intent of a DDoS attack is to exhaust the service’s resources rendering the service unavailable to its customers. Azure DDoS Protection Service provides always-on network flow monitoring of the protected endpoints, and when a DDoS attack is detected, automatically applies traffic scrubbing to ensure that only legitimate traffic reaches the service. Azure DDoS protection provides customers with the peace of mind that their services are protected from the impacts of DDoS attacks.
