AWS WAF is a web application firewall that helps protect your web applications from common web exploits that could affect application availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources. AWS WAF gives you control over which traffic to allow or block to your web applications by defining customizable web security rules. AWS WAF can be deployed on Amazon CloudFront, Application Load Balancer, and Amazon API Gateway. To learn more visit the detailed page here.
AWS Shield Advanced is a managed Application Security service that safeguards web applications running on AWS from threats like Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). AWS Shield Advanced 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.
