Shape Security

Protecting the Global 2000 from bot attacks

Criminals steal over 10 million credentials daily and then use these credentials to attack web and mobile applications. Shape Security’s mission is to stop these attacks, eliminating fraud and restoring trust online. Today, Shape defends 1.7 billion user accounts.

Shape tells the difference between real versus fake users online. Shape stands between the world's consumers and the major online brands, protecting against bots imitating real customers. Shape then takes the friction out of e-commerce, eliminating the need for user names and passwords by helping brands to recognize their customers with no visible security.
