Overview

With limited security expertise, protecting your web applications is a daunting task. Web Application Protector provides automated web application firewall (WAF) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection that’s designed to offload the complexity associated with a traditional WAF. Easy to deploy and manage, Web Application Protector is backed by the scale and reliability of the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform ― so you worry less about threats and focus more on growing your business.

AWS Shield is a managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service that safeguards applications running on AWS. 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.
