AWS Shield Advanced Pricing

AWS Shield Advanced and AWS Shield Standard Pricing

AWS Shield Standard is included with your AWS services at no additional cost.

AWS Shield Advanced pricing is detailed on the AWS Shield Advanced Pricing page. AWS Shield Advanced does have an additional cost, but AWS Shield Advanced customers do not pay for AWS WAF separately; it is included as part of the AWS Shield Advanced service. Further, AWS Shield Advanced charges do not increase with attack volume. This provides a predictable cost for the extended protection.

The AWS Shield Advanced fee applies for each business that is subscribed to AWS Shield Advanced. If your business has multiple AWS accounts, you pay just one Shield Advanced monthly fee as long as all the AWS accounts are in the same Consolidated Billing account family. Further, you must own all the AWS accounts and resources in the account.
