Out-of-the-Box Protection Modes
DataDome provides four out-of-the-box protection modes that adapt your settings to specific situations. Each mode optimizes your detection granularity and response strategy based on context.
Balanced Protection Mode
Balanced protection mode leverages the best everyday settings to avoid any tradeoff between security and user experience. This mode guarantees a 0% false positive rate, optimal management of all bot traffic, and solid online fraud protection.
Flash Sales Protection Mode
Flash sales, or “hype” sales, protection mode uses more aggressive behavioral detection models, designed to preserve sales funnels during special launches and events. We monitor country, type of IP, etc. to ensure only legitimate users can shop your sales.
Breaking News Protection Mode
Breaking news mode is designed to protect the performance of your website, mobile app, and/or API while managing heavy automated traffic (which may include throttling good bots) and fending off increased DDoS attacks.
Under Attack Protection Mode
Under attack mode, or “crisis” mode, is the go-to setting to switch on while an attack is underway. In this mode, security levels are tightened and all requests are prone to being challenged.
Beyond the four built-in protection modes, users can also customize all responses via 15+ criteria for each threat, attack, and endpoint.
