Ad fraud puts your brand at risk

Digital marketing is more important than ever. But the scale and complex deployment makes it a prime target for malicious activity. Invalid traffic (IVT) driven via bots and other threats create real challenges for your organization's strategy. This affects your bottom line and opens your brand up to risk. Today, you can’t discuss your digital efforts without discussing cybersecurity. The problem isn’t going away, it’s only getting worse. 

Traditional fraud detection tools only claim to verify the legitimacy of site traffic from digital media. Unfortunately, these tools overlook some of the more nefarious and sophisticated forms of ad fraud, compromising your reputation and overall campaign ROI. Organizations need a smarter way to identify and stop malicious ad activity. Digital Detect is the only data-driven solution proven to stop ad fraud to help teams maximize budgets, increase qualified leads, and build awareness. 

During a fraud and traffic analysis engagement with a top consumer brand, Digital Detect diagnosed nearly 13% of ad traffic as fraudulent

Cyber Invalid Traffic (CIVT) is a new form of IVT
that indicates ad fraud committed by sophisticated adversaries.

Protect your reputation, defend your bottom line

Digital Detect goes beyond traditional invalid traffic detection. Our advanced behavioral analytics capabilities correlate ad traffic with malicious network activity to give you a more comprehensive picture of invalid impressions and traffic, as well as other fraudulent activities such as malware-infected corporate networks and targeted botnets. You've known there's fraudulent activity going undetected, now you'll be able to quickly spot and defend your brand against it.
