DataDome Magento with Fastly CDN integration detects and protects against bot activity.

This module is dedicated for use with Magento utilizing Fastly CDN.

DataDome works as a preflight to detect bots. A fingerprint is sent and DataDome detects in real-time if the traffic is legitimate or not.

The module has been developed to protect the visitors' experience: if any errors were to occur during the process, or if the timeout is reached, the module will automatically disable its blocking mechanism and allow the regular Fastly process to proceed.


Before integrating DataDome bot protection in Magento, you need to:

  • Ask Fastly Support to enable DataDome support for your Fastly service as described here
  • Use Fastly integration version 1.2.127 or higher in Magento
