Bots don’t buy

We process and analyze trillions of data events each month in order to identify anomalies that indicate fraud across all channels and platforms. The aggregated data creates scalable detection models to distinguish real human behavior from bots, even in previously uncharted areas. We also look at signs sent during a specific browser session or from a specific device. Bots have a signature set of features that can be identified through detailed mapping of the browser environment and device characteristics.

Prevent wasted media spend while protecting scale

We help you identify where, when, and how illegal bots are infiltrating your media plan. Start blocking ad fraud threats with precision before the impression is even served so your budget stays protected.
