How advertising fraud works

MediaGuard uses HUMAN’s modern defense strategy to keep cybercriminals out of your digital advertising with unmatched scale, speed, and accuracy

Ad Fraud Affects the Entire Ecosystem

Increasing spend, ever-evolving channels - web, connected TV (CTV), native, mobile web, and mobile app - and ease of connecting to audiences have made digital advertising increasingly attractive to marketers. Unfortunately, these same characteristics have made it equally appealing to fraudsters.

Fraud in the digital advertising supply chain lowers the quality and ultimately diminishes the trust in the entire ecosystem. Ad tech platforms and media owners have the most to lose from this. Lower quality from fraud reduces inventory value in the short term and leaves platform reputations with demand sources damaged for the future.

HUMAN works with all leading ad platforms, which lets us see more than 85% of the total global programmatic impressions. DSPs and SSPs leverage HUMAN to ensure that their inventory is free from sophisticated bots, improve the value of their platform, and better their standing with ecosystem partners.

MediaGuard Stops Ad Fraud

MediaGuard keeps cybercriminals out of your digital advertising

Sophisticated bots behave like real users, making it easy for them to evade detection. As a result, advertisers and platforms find it increasingly challenging to keep their digital media free from fraud. A sophisticated bot can imitate human behavior using mouse movements, keystrokes, fake browser behavior and even imitate other devices. As a result, traditional ad fraud solutions that rely on behavioral monitoring or static lists to detect bots are increasingly vulnerable to abuse. MediaGuard uses a multilayered detection methodology that establishes hard technical evidence to prove fraud. This enables MediaGuard to detect and mitigate today’s sophisticated bots with unmatched scale, speed, and precision to ensure that only real humans are interacting with your media.
