Application Security & Fraud Prevention

PREVENT ACCOUNT
TAKEOVERS

HUMAN helps security and fraud teams prevent user account theft and abuse

Stop cybercriminals from taking unauthorized ownership of your customer accounts

HUMAN’s modern defense strategy prevents fraudsters from credential stuffing and cracking attacks against your application - without impacting real users and their access. But without that level of defense, your application is open to falling victim to account takeover (ATO).

Compromised Accounts

Cybercriminals have full control
When an account takeover is successful, the fraudster has full access to a user’s account and can carry out any activities for their gain leaving you powerless.

Evolving Threats

WAF is not enough
Novel attacks use thousands of residential devices to mimic human behaviors to access your applications that simple security measures cannot counteract.

Increased Risk

Customer and business exposure
ATOs put your customers and your business at risk by exposing PII, preventing account access, and allowing attackers to perform fraudulent transactions.

How fraudulent
account takeovers work

HUMAN’s BotGuard for Applications is built to defend against the most sophisticated of account takeover bot attacks with unmatched scale, speed, and precision.

Account takeover attacks are when existing user accounts are compromised by cybercriminals. Often, these activities run at scale and use sophisticated bots on compromised residential devices. ATOs cost little to carry out, have a high success rate, and have rippling advantages for cybercriminals.

Credential stuffing is when attackers use stolen account credentials gathered from malware-infected machines or obtained from large data breaches. These stolen credentials are then tested against web applications to identify vulnerable accounts. Given the high amount of password reuse, botmasters have high success rates in stealing account information and can perform fraudulent transactions, steal PII, resell account credentials, or post fake content and reviews.
Credential cracking is “brute force” breaking into accounts. Fraudsters obtain partial login credentials then use bots to try passwords at high volume and speed until they find a combination that works. The valid details are recorded and used elsewhere to log in to other accounts.

How BotGuard for Applications prevents account takeovers

Our multi-layered detection methodology uses machine learning, threat intelligence, and technical evidence to fight account takeover attacks.

Today’s sophisticated bots behave like real users and are designed to evade detection. As a result, businesses find it increasingly challenging to defend applications from automated attacks. Even when apps function as intended, they are vulnerable to fraudsters using bots that mimic human behavior using mouse movements, keystrokes, and fake browser behavior. These sophisticated bots can easily evade bot detection features in conventional application security solutions that rely on behavioral monitoring or static lists, leaving your apps vulnerable to abuse. Unlike traditional solutions, BotGuard for Applications combines superior detection techniques, internet-scale observability, and hacker intelligence to make bot or not decisions with no impact on page load times or friction on end-users. With this scale and speed, we can mitigate today and tomorrow’s sophisticated bots.
