HUMAN Security has announced HUMAN Bot Insights services to support BotGuard for Applications customers in detecting advanced bot attacks.

Security teams are overworked and understaffed, according to the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), with a cyber security skills deficit affecting 67 percent of businesses. Many businesses lack the staff, time, or resources necessary to speed the web application security enhancements needed to protect vital internet platforms from today’s sophisticated bot attacks. Furthermore, sophisticated bots can readily avoid bot detection tools in traditional app security solutions such as CDNs, WAFs, and CAPTCHAs, leaving apps vulnerable to abuse.

John Grady, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group said, “As organizations have shifted to more online-focused business operations, a trend further accelerated by the pandemic, attackers have doubled down on their efforts and increased the frequency of bot-driven fraud and logic abuse.”

Application vulnerabilities must be identified, and mitigation solutions must be deployed and configured to meet each customer’s specific architecture and requirements in order to be effective. Businesses must choose a specific bot management system, but HUMAN understands that winning against attackers requires more than just technology. HUMAN verifies the humanity of over 15 trillion client-side interactions per week and monitors over 3 billion devices online each month, giving Bot Insights Services customers a level of visibility that no other company can match.

Gavin Hill, Vice President, Human Insights said, “HUMAN Bot Insights Services are designed to help businesses reduce the impact of malicious bots. By enhancing their security program with dedicated bot experts from HUMAN, customers collaborate with analysts that focus 100 percent of their time on protecting businesses from sophisticated bot attacks and fraud. Our Human Insights analysts and data scientists act as an extension of your security team providing custom bot attack surface analysis and advanced policy configuration, event investigations, priority responses, and detailed threat intelligence so that customers can protect and respond more quickly to automated attacks.”
