NuCaptcha is a technology that uses video to determine if people are really human, not machines. Video offers the greatest advancement in Captcha technology since it was first introduced ten years ago, due to the simple fact that motion in video is very hard for computers to read, yet extremely easy for humans.
The use of Captchas has almost doubled in the last 2 years with an estimated 100 billion Captchas used last year. This reflects both the growth of online activities as well as the increasing need to protect websites and users against spam, login hacks, online identity and resource theft and other abuses. Yet surprisingly, over the last ten years, there have been few if any true innovations in mainstream captcha technology.
NuCaptcha introduces video technology to text-based Captchas: Animation enables NuCaptcha to increase security features such as closely packing letters together; creating text that is very difficult for software, specifically Optical Character Recognition (OCR), to solve compared to current products in the field. In contrast, the animation makes the captcha far easier for humans to solve, because humans are attuned to perceiving motion.
In addition, the NuCaptcha Platform utilizes behavioral intelligence to deliver very easy Captchas to legitimate users and increasingly difficult Captchas to attackers. This enables websites and blogs to confidently acquire more legitimate registered users, provide a better user experience, and ultimately generate more revenue and value.
