HUMAN Raises $100M to Prevent Sophisticated Bot Attacks That are Plaguing the Internet - AlleyWatch

It’s estimated that 40% of internet traffic is non-generated or bot traffic. While some of this non-human traffic is used to improve the internet experience (think TurboVax for finding vaccine availability or SEO indexing), a large portion is used for nefarious purposes. HUMAN is a cybersecurity solutions provider that focuses on protecting enterprises and users from bot-based automated attacks. The company, founded in 2012, offer three multilayered core detection products - BotGuard for Applications (focused on preventing user identity and data intrusions), BotGuard for Growth Marketing (preventing advertisers from purchasing bot-generated traffic), and MediaGuard (protects publishers from bot traffic). HUMAN’s observability technology, detection, intelligence, and takedown capabilities analyze 15 trillion interactions per week to flag potential vulnerabilities at the source. AlleyWatch caught up with HUMAN Tamer Hassan to learn more about the company’s humble beginning in a bookstore a decade ago, the threat that non-human bot traffic presents to the average consumer’s everyday interactions on the internet, the company’s strategic plans, latest round of funding, which brings the total funding raised to $142.1M, and much, much more.

Connecting Roads and Transit Systems: Easing Congestion in New York - AlleyWatch

New York is finding ways to alleviate the vehicular mayhem post-pandemic. One way is to introduce a congestion pricing program in which tolls will collect a fee from drivers entering certain sections of Manhattan, usually during peak hours. In this case, toll roads take on a dual purpose: to raise revenue and control traffic via sensors and detection tools. The upside is that fewer cars results in decreased air pollution. The downside is that residents and tourists may feel penalized for driving a vehicle or feel financially whipped by another fee.

GoCoach Raises $3.5M for its Career Coaching and Learning Development Platform - AlleyWatch

Despite an increasing reliance on technology, the workforce has never been more human-centric than ever before. Organizations must nurture and maximize employee potential to put teams in a position to grow and for companies to succeed. Employee coaching has become a modern centerpiece of continuous performance management. Employees that go through training and coaching have shown an 88% increase in productivity when working with top coaches.

Ophelia Raises $50M for its Virtual Drug Rehab Platform - AlleyWatch

The pandemic has brought on challenges for individuals with substance use disorders and those in recovery with in-person drug rehabilitation centers forced to scale back operations or temporarily close. Overdoses topped 100K in the first twelve months of the pandemic, up 29%. Only 4.2M of the 20M Americans with substance use disorder receive help each year. With such an acute and growing crisis coupled with political sentiment moving towards harm reduction, removing barriers to treatment has moved to the forefront of the discussion. Ophelia is a digital treatment platform that provides telehealth services to opioid users by connecting them to licensed Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinicians. For opioid users, rehab fails 90% of the time without access to medication. Ophelia’s platform virtually connects providers to patients, who are able to secure prescriptions on the same day of the visit, from the privacy of their homes. Follow-up visits are scheduled to track progress, outcomes, and to hold users accountable. The visits are covered by insurance and the company offers out-of-pocket plans for the uninsured. Ophelia currently is approved to operate in 27 states with plans to expand to more localities. AlleyWatch caught up with Ophelia CEO and Cofounder Zack Gray to learn more about how the accessibility the platform providers to users that are not currently engaged with the health care system, the company’s strategic expansion plans, and latest round of funding from investors that include Tiger Global, Menlo Ventures, General Catalyst, and Refactor Capital.

Ophelia, cofounded by Zack Gray, is a telehealth platform for medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder, focused on removing barriers for patients, clinicians, and payors.

Why are women absent from mega-round #funding, and what can we do to fix it? In a recent compilation of mega-rounds of funding (The 17 Largest US Tech Startup Funding Rounds of Q1 2021 by AlleyWatch), one thing is painfully obvious. Women are not seeing much action in the big-money rounds. The article listed seventeen companies. Even after accounting for multiple founders for many of the companies, there was still only one #femalefounder listed. That’s right, one. Why?
