Learn why HUMAN is a leader over Akamai Bot Manager in bot and online fraud mitigation, combating abuse across multiple industries and use cases.
HUMAN’s visibility advantage, with more than 3 billion devices observed monthly, puts you in a unique position to win against attackers.
HUMAN provides attack type details and executive-level metrics around operational efficiency, protected revenue, and user experience impact.
HUMAN provides rich analytics through the Human portal with pre-built and customizable dashboards.
Custom rules and response actions can be defined straight from the console, without raising a change request or waiting for a response from support.
Our user verification tool, Human Challenge, is the most user-friendly CAPTCHA on the market. It appears as a simple button that users press and hold, capturing useful data behind-the-scenes to weed out bad bots and gather feedback to improve future detections.
HUMAN offers a wide range of integration options including SDKs, CDNs, web servers and Cloud platforms
Many Akamai customers supplement their Akamai protection with HUMAN, relying on us to provide better protection from bots with fewer false positives.
Akamai reports do not provide information on attack types.
The Akamai management interface provides list-based detail and appears old-fashioned.
Akamai needs professional services, billed separately, for each activation, analysis, or change.
Akamai doesn’t provide a CAPTCHA. Many customers instead resort to using reCAPTCHA, which is up to 6x slower than Human Challenge and has a 3-5x higher abandonment rate. Furthermore, because reCAPTCHA is from a third party, it provides no feedback loop.
Akamai has fewer deployment options. This means less flexibility in designing your architecture and may require additional work to fully integrate.
