There are quite a few applications that can be installed to IIS that will dynamically block traffic based upon signatures. Similar to anti-virus signatures for .dat files, IPS attack signature identification functions correspondingly.

Your website wouldn't be affected by other attacks targeting Cloudflare, unless it's a really, (I mean really!) huge attack. Cloudflare is damn good at load balancing. If I were you, I'd be more concerned about false positives and attack bandwidth caps (when on a free plan). CF is a good starter solution, but If you are looking for some serious and more ...

Google Apps is protected against DDoS by the simple fact that Google has bigger pipes than any reasonably expected adversary. Project Shield appears to be a product offering like CloudFlare and would have nothing to do with keeping Google Apps running beyond the fact that the same "we have more bandwidth and servers than any attacker" protection applies.
