CTV Fraud

Powered by an explosion of new streaming devices and content services, Connected TV (CTV) is becoming one of the fastest-growing markets for advertisers. As with other channels, ad fraud follows the money. Now is the time to prepare for ad fraud in CTV.

HUMAN delivers proactive fraud monitoring and real-time prevention solutions across CTV environments.

The PARETO Operation

HUMAN, along with Google, Roku, Omnicom Media Group, Magnite, The Trade Desk, and our partners in The Human Collective, collaborated on the disruption of the most sophisticated CTV-focused operation to date.

Protect your CTV investments

Today’s bots and botnets are increasingly more sophisticated and deliver a host of malicious activities in CTV, including device spoofing, app spoofing, device farms, hidden ads, and incentivized ads. Equally as damaging is fraudsters’ ability to fake the entire system and siphon legitimate opportunities and revenue. Even the most secure platform is susceptible to buyers purchasing spoofed inventory.


HUMAN combines CTV-specific threat research, our multilayered detection approach and a monthly reach of more than 100 billion CTV opportunities to detect and prevent fraud in real-time with unprecedented accuracy.
