“By providing exceptionally granular and comprehensive knowledge into undesirable traffic sources, advertisers can eliminate wasting budget on impressions that do not reach a worthwhile audience,” said Cordell BaanHofman, Vice President of Business Development, zvelo. “Fraud continues to plague digital advertising, but DSPs, SSPs, and publishers are now able to receive unparalleled, accurate, and continuous insight with the Invalid Traffic dataset. By improving campaign performance and providing protection from bot traffic, the IVT dataset is designed to offer a fast return on investment.”
