At HUMAN, we are all about knowing who’s real. We are the global leader in bot mitigation. We protect more than 200 enterprises—including the largest internet platforms—from sophisticated bots by verifying the humanity of over ten trillion online interactions every week. The most sophisticated bots look and act like humans when they click on ads, visit websites, fill out forms, take over accounts, and commit payment fraud. We stop them.

Founded in 2012 in a Brooklyn sci-fi bookstore, our Bot Mitigation Platform protects enterprises from the sophisticated bots that threaten them. It’s an ongoing war that we fight passionately every day. Join our mission to stop bots, disrupt the economics of cybercrime, and keep it human.

Our Threat Intel team is responsible for proactively identifying new threats. Our team discovers, identifies, and explores bots, making attribution to software, malware, and actors. We predict new threats and anticipate new defenses. We search the open and dark internet to find actors and services that may pertain to bot or not. We imagine and prototype new capabilities that HUMAN comes to use at scale. We enable researchers to work in-depth and safely when probing the web’s dark corners.
