HUMAN expands enterprise protection from sophisticated bot


HUMAN Security, Inc. (formerly White Ops), a cyber-security company that protects enterprises from bot attacks to keep digital experiences human, today announced its newly-named BotGuard and a range of new features to further help enterprise customers defend their website and mobile applications from sophisticated bot attacks and fraud.

BotGuard is powered by the Human Verification EngineTM, which combines technical evidence, machine learning, and continuous adaptation to deliver “human or not” bot detection decisions with industry-leading accuracy. The Human Verification Engine uniquely verifies the humanity of 10 trillion interactions per week while also harnessing internet scale visibility and a decade of data to deliver continuously adaptive and mutually reinforcing protection to customers, including the largest internet platforms. In its report, The Forrester New Wave: Bot Management, Q1 2020, Forrester recognised that HUMAN “leads the pack with robust threat intelligence, attack detection and vision.”

“Enterprises find it increasingly difficult to defend websites and applications from sophisticated bots that can easily evade bot detection features in conventional security solutions that rely on behavioral monitoring or static lists, leaving your site and apps open to abuse,” said Mike Aiello, Chief Product Officer at HUMAN. “The features we’re launching today as part of the newly named BotGuard further enhance our solution’s best-in-class accuracy and manageability to help organisations protect their web and mobile experiences.”

“We’re hyper-focused on ensuring rich digital interactions with customers regardless of how often they’re traveling. Sophisticated bad bots get in the way, wasting resources meant for engaging our customers,” said Neil Haskins, Head of Group IT Security, Seera. “With HUMAN, we were able to identify the sophisticated bot traffic threatening multiple brands’ account log-in and registration experiences and get deeper insights to stay ahead of threats. We like diverting investments from bad bot traffic and the bad actors behind it to our real human customers.”

“Protecting our customers from automated fraud and abuse is key to ensuring a safe and trusted digital customer experience, which is key to our core business and growth strategy,” said the Chief Product Officer at a global eCommerce company. “HUMAN was able to detect and enable the blocking of bots that were not being caught by other bot mitigation solution vendors. In addition, HUMAN’s threat intelligence experts and customer support teams offer deep insights and continuous learning, ensuring we can stay ahead of emerging threats and bad actors.”

The newly named BotGuard protects web and mobile applications from malicious scraping, account takeover, account creation fraud, and in-app content and experience abuse. The BotGuard solution adds new features to further strengthen bot detection accuracy and mitigation options, new integrations with leading edge and web server solutions to speed deployment and reduce implementation efforts, and new dash-boarding features to enhance visualisation and enable granular policy customisation.
