The Austin-based startup reports that the “relaunch makes 80legs simpler and easier to use, complete with a new back-end design that helps the platform crawl with increased power, speed, and reliability.”
The new features for 80legs include the ability to crawl an unlimited number of URLs a month to meet user demands and auto-scales crawls to eliminate delays in processing jobs. The new version increases the time it takes to crawl a website by ten times.
Datafiniti took over 80legs last year. The platform’s users include Acxiom, HP, Integral Ads and others “for reviews management, competitive intelligence, social media monitoring, ad and pricing optimization, fraud detection, predictive modeling and more,” according to a news release. “MailChimp uses 80legs to capture email address on every website for spam prevention, and PayPal uses 80legs to identify fraudulent uses of their platform.”
