How programmatic ad fraud works

Powered by data and processed in milliseconds, programmatic provides fraudsters multiple avenues to profit

Is your programmatic advertising platform ripe for ad fraud?

With its increasing spend and ever-evolving channels, digital advertising has been one of the most appealing targets for cybercriminals. Additionally, programmatically traded channels are particularly vulnerable to fraudsters looking to grab their piece of the pie. 

When fraudsters infiltrate the programmatic ecosystem, they steal more than just advertising dollars. Ad fraud damages the trust within the programmatic ecosystem and the decisions it delivers for digital advertising.

Partnering with industry leaders across the ecosystem means that HUMAN protects more than 85% of the total global programmatic impressions. The result is higher quality advertising inventory and increased trust in the ecosystem as a whole.

MediaGuard Protects Against Disruptive Ad Fraud

MediaGuard uses HUMAN’s modern defense strategy to keep ad fraud out of programmatic 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.
