Malicious bots are growing more advanced by the second to circumvent security measures, and the rise of human-bot combinations and AI-powered bots have facilitated the consistent bypass of usual point-in-time, static barriers like WAFs, traditional CAPTCHAs, and user validation databases. What’s more, silos between security and fraud mitigation enable attackers to take advantage of vulnerabilities and launch attacks that cut across the whole customer journey, profiting along the way. Online businesses are bearing the consequences of automated cyberattacks and online fraud, and it’s a costly situation to be stuck in. Enterprises need a solution that puts them back in the driver’s seat and empowers them to fight fraud.

“Bots have become a common path to fraud. In 2022 alone, DataDome stopped, in real time, over 250 billion online fraud attempts,” said Benjamin Fabre, CEO and co-founder of DataDome. “Because of how our product is built and deployed, we have a unique lens into attack vectors and can see across silos to stop attacks in their tracks. This is why enterprises like Rakuten, Reddit, and AngelList trust us to protect their digital properties.”

“This cash infusion will fund global commercial rollout and R&D efforts to ensure that our offering continues to raise the bar, and stays well ahead of bot developers and fraudsters,” continued Fabre. “In InfraVia, we have an investor who trusts in and shares our vision, and brings years of valuable experience helping companies scale globally. Threat actors don’t stand a chance.”
