Azure anti-DDoS measures RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have hosted our virtual machines and web services to Azure platform. I am just wondering, what will happen if a DDoS attack hits on our hosted web services? How Microsoft mitigates DDoS attack for Virtual machine or Web services hosted at Azure. 

    Also, want to know how Microsoft handles load balancers to protect against malicious attacks. 

    Regards,

  • Yes it would apply to any services hosted in Azure. Read those links shared in the Azure Trust Center, it provides protections and controls for any services hosted in Azure. Specifics on devices, or network architecture will not likely be available.

  • Hi Michael,

    Just to be clear, does it applies to our application based web services hosted at Azure?
