Counter ad fraud with cybersecurity

Ad fraud is becoming increasingly sophisticated, especially on new channels like connected TV. Fraudsters routinely use advanced ML and AI to successfully combat anti-fraud solutions. Only a cybersecurity evidence-based real-time solution can meet the new threats head on and keep you protected.

Advanced protection for connected TV

SSAI Fraud

SSAI accounts for 40% of CTV traffic. The use of server side technology for ad stitching makes it extremely difficult to implement 3rd party verification codes onto ads. Protected Media certifies SSAI providers, and verifies SSAI traffic in real-time on each impression.

CTV Impersonation

Most CTV vendors support only IMG pixel integration, enabling fraudsters to easily impersonate CTV traffic by using bots, rough apps on mobile phones and P2P proxies. Our multilayered solution identifies non-CTV channels to ensure you only get real CTV traffic.

Sophisticated IVT

Fraudsters are already relying on sophisticated CTV attack vectors such as harnessing device farms without human viewers that are manipulated to act as real users. Protected Media’s solution identifies even the most advanced threats and ensures your CTV traffic isn’t hijacked.
