Easily the best bot protection

We originally used a competitor - Distil Networks (now Imperva). Our experience with them was ok, but the management tools were rudimentary and support became so poor we had to give up on them. We shopped for another solution and landed on DataDome. They've been a vast improvement - night and day. The site we use them for is a constant target for heavy scraping by competitors. DataDome easily catches the simple bots. Their support team works hard with us to catch the more sophisticated and advanced threats. Given how much support we get and the quality of the reporting and configuration tools, we definitely are getting our money's worth and recommend DataDome to anyone who needs bot protection.

Pros

Flexible tools and deployment, good reporting, great support, transparent pricing

Cons

Nothing significant. More engineers in US timezone would help.

Reasons for Choosing DataDome

More professional documentation and transparent pricing. More enterprise feel.

DataDome helps do away with annoying captcha solutions

It started off shaky, due to some configuration mishaps, and early on we still had problems with bots, but as time has gone on it is clear the DD team, and its platform, is learning and for now at least, seems to be one step ahead of the bot networks, which is great.

Pros

Before DataDome, we were using Funcaptcha, a solution which is great at preventing bot registrations, but that's all. DataDome helped us remove the captcha solution almost entirely, and instead helps us prevent bot attacks and phony registrations often well before they even see a registration form. This has resulted in far less time on our end having to manage our clients' frustrations due to bots and botnets, meaning our application has a higher quality of delivery than our competitors.

Cons

Unless you understand the entirety of the solution, your implementation can leave gaps for bots to get through, or an incorrect configuration resulting in hours of frustration. Make sure you work closely with the DataDome team in getting it setup correctly to begin with.

Reasons for Choosing DataDome

Namely, price. Other solutions are quite expensive. That's not to say that DataDome is cheap, either. It's not - but it does what we need it to and is in fact, saving us money by not having to build these solutions ourselves, which would take away development from our core IP.

Reasons for Switching to DataDome

Funcaptcha decided to start billing clients in over the 100k mark completely out of the blue. Considering its solution wasn't an end-to-end solution, it basically forced us to review the market and see what else was available.

Pays for itself by eliminating crawler traffic from our servers

We are a media company specializing in legal products and services. Crawlers were aggressively scraping and downloading our proprietary content, slowing down our website and driving up our infrastructure budget in the process. DataDome efficiently blocks the crawlers. It helps us protect valuable content and right-size our server infrastructure, so that we can focus on other developments and initiatives.

Pros

The integration was very smooth and simple, with excellent onboarding support. DataDome has proven efficient since the beginning, protecting our content and stabilizing our server load. The customer support is very helpful, and overall we have a great relationship with DataDome.

Cons

It would be useful to have more information in the reports about who is using specific IPs

DataDome Review

Pros

La disponibilité et réactivité du support DataDome ainsi que de l'équipe technique.

Cons

Le fait que beaucoup de Bots ne sont pas détectés par la solution DataDome lors des grands lancements. Difficile de trouver le juste milieu pour bloquer tous les bots et laisser passer les clients légitimes.

Production is running like sunshine

What we have solved is that all traffic which enters our production environments now is clean.

Pros

Easy to implement and everything is automated now

Cons

Rate limiter can be improved to minutes or seconds, feature like crawl delays for good or commercial bots. But not much to dislike at all.
