A new security feature has been added to Azure called Azure DDoS Protection Service.

This new service is integrated with Virtual Networks to protect you against DDoS attacks.

It comes into 2 service levels:

  • Azure DDoS Protection Basic Service with no additional cost associated and does not requires any configuration or application changes
  • Azure DDoS Protection Standard Service is a new offering to provide more protection capabilities and is tuned to your specific Azure resources. This can be enabled on new on existing Virtual Networks. No application changes are required.

The Standard service will analyze the standard pattern of your resources using machine learning to define the most appropriate DDoS protection.
