AWS Shield vs CloudFlare: What are the differences?
AWS Shield: Managed DDoS Protection. AWS Shield is a managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service that safeguards web 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; CloudFlare: The Web Performance & Security Company. Cloudflare speeds up and protects millions of websites, APIs, SaaS services, and other properties connected to the Internet.
AWS Shield belongs to "Security" category of the tech stack, while CloudFlare can be primarily classified under "Content Delivery Network".
