Truth in digital
media ROI

Maximize your digital marketing effectiveness and efficiency with advanced ad fraud detection.


Ad fraud isn't new

Invalid traffic (IVT) driven via bots and other malicious means through your organization's digital media have been a challenge for some time. Digital marketers and savvy executives understand that invalid traffic through paid channels drives up cost, drives down viewability, and increases brand risk. This problem isn't going away — it's getting worse.

The market is littered with fraud detection tools that claim to verify the legitimacy of site traffic from digital media. Digital marketing agencies and enterprises rely on them to catch fraudulent traffic, hoping to ensure optimal ROI. These tools overlook some of the more nefarious and sophisticated forms of ad fraud, however, compromising your overall return on advertising investment.

Borne from IronNet's cybersecurity machine learning platforms, IronDome and IronDefense, Digital Detect goes beyond traditional invalid traffic detection. Our advanced behavioral analytics 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.
