A US security company has come up with a technology it says can block
automated programs responsible for perpetuating nuisances such as spam,
fake email registrations and click fraud.
The software, HumanPresent, essentially ferrets out, for example,
whether a human is filling out a web-based form and stopping those
actions that appear to come from automated programs, said Sanjay Sehgal,
CEO of Pramana.
Next month, Pramana expects to fully launch both a SaaS
(software-as-a-service) offering and an appliance that monitor web
applications for intrusions by bots, Sehgal said.
Pramana's software can be applied to web-based forms, whether they be
email registrations, e-commerce transactions or detecting click fraud
related to banner advertising.
