Microsoft announced today the availability of Azure DDoS IP Protection in public preview, a new and fully managed DDoS Protection pay-per-protected IP model tailored to small and midsize businesses.
Unlike the enterprise offering, DDoS IP Protection does not have support for DDoS rapid response support, cost protection, and discounts on WAF. “With the DDoS IP Protection SKU, customers now have the flexibility to enable DDoS protection on individual public IP addresses,” Microsoft Senior Product Manager for Azure Networking Amir Dahan said.
Massive mitigation capacity and scale: Defend your workloads against the largest and most sophisticated attacks with cloud-scale DDoS protection backed by Azure’s global network.
Integration with Azure Firewall Manager: Centrally manage your DDoS protection across your environment alongside other network security services.
You can configure the SKU in the Azure Preview Portal as part of the Azure DDoS Protection configuration workflow.
Billing for IP Protection will be effective starting February 1st, 2023, and you can find more pricing info on the Azure DDoS Protection pricing page.
