Media.net is providing the most comprehensive implementation of MediaGuard across programmatic display, native and video to safeguard marketers and publishers from the impacts of fraud. By leveraging MediaGuard, Media.net will now assure demand-side platforms (DSPs) the highest standards of clean traffic bought across all regions and creative formats available on the exchange while providing proactive fraud prevention for its publisher network.
“Media.net is committed to eliminating fraud,” said Vaibhav Arya, Media.net CEO. “Having built significant proprietary tech and processes to combat fraud, Media.net is now going a step further by partnering with the market leader in fraud prevention.

White Ops MediaGuard pre-bid prevention API is a machine-learning algorithm that learns and adapts in real-time from White Ops advanced bot detection techniques to accurately predict and block bot driven ad requests before a buyer has the opportunity to bid on them. This “upstream “elimination of fraudulent ad requests result is better performance for advertisers and yield for publishers.
According to the 2019 Bot Baseline report, released by White Ops and the ANA (Association of National Advertisers), projected losses to ad fraud is down 11 percent in two years. However, every year, cybercrime becomes more advanced and because of that, ad fraud persists in new, creative forms. Protecting against tactics that mimic human behavior, fake premium publisher inventory and evade traditional detection techniques requires a comprehensive, dynamic and adaptive prevention solution.

"By implementing MediaGuard pre-bid fraud prevention, Media.net is demonstrating its dedication to a cleaner ecosystem."
