Netacea vs HUMAN

HUMAN (which acquired PerimeterX in 2022) has a wide customer base but their solution is prone to bypasses and lacks simple, robust protection of mobile apps and APIs. Netacea uses server-side technology to detect bots at the edge, covering all attack surfaces in one highly accurate solution.
