Platforms: Protect Inventory Value And Ensure Advertiser Trust

Keep the bidding process on your platform free from sophisticated bots and fraud. With HUMAN Programmatic Ad Fraud Defense, DSPs and SSPs ensure that only verified human inventory is allowed into the bidding process without affecting platform speed regardless of channel.

Fraud in the digital advertising supply chain lowers the quality and ultimately diminishes trust in the entire ecosystem. This leaves ad tech and media owners with reduced inventory value and damaged reputations with demand partners.
