Ad Tech – Brand Safety, Ad Fraud Prevention

AD TECH: Delivering Brand Safety, Ad Fraud Prevention and Botnet/NHT Detection

Ad Tech is a high-growth, dynamic industry grappling with key challenges that impact ROI for buyers and yield for publishers.  Learn how zvelo Ad Tech customers benefit from zvelo solutions. 

Programmatic platforms in general, and real-time bidding (RTB) in particular, enable dynamic audience targeting at scale, as well as, considerable operational efficiencies.  However, along with the benefits of RTB buying are issues tied to loss of publisher transparency, concerns about publisher quality, and issues related to brand safety — all of which were previously kept in check via premium purchasing relationships.  Beyond brand safety and ad fraud, delivering optimal campaign performance also requires deep, rich targeting insights which can sometimes be hard to glean in programmatic or RTB environments.

zvelo’s rich content, contextual and malicious datasets empower ad tech stakeholders to address brand safety and ad fraud concerns while maximizing audience relevance via contextual targeting ensuring alignment of content to campaign and providing the data driving the next generation of Programmatic, Native, Social and Mobile Advertising platforms.

Our zveloDP™ data platform serves both the buy side and sell side of the ad tech ecosystem.


Ad Fraud Prevention, Detection and Reporting

zvelo provides ad fraud prevention and botnet/NHT detection, as well as, malicious detection of URLs with the industry’s only real-time dual decisioning pre-bid solution.

zveloDP provides a real-time feed of botnet/NHTdetections, as well as Low Quality Traffic (LQT) and Invalid Traffic (IVT). This empowers buy-side platforms with actionable data to preemptively filter out fraudulent or malicious traffic and malware, with no latency.

Sell-side platforms can filter out impression opportunities originating from unwanted traffic, whether it be NHT (non-human, bot), low quality or malicious, prior to being offered up to bidders. zveloDP’s Insights Dashboard also delivers transparent campaign reporting at the domain as well as the page-level.

Traffic Quality Analysis

Publishers have insufficient insight into their traffic, relying on brand reputation and content to drive visitors and advertisers. With the concern over ad fraud related bot traffic, they need a means to analyze and validate the traffic quality and safety of their site.  zveloDP™ detection enables publishers to monitor the type of traffic visiting their site(s) providing insight into if the traffic is human, non-human (bot) or low-quality.  zveloDP™ arms publishers with the data necessary to maximize results of audience extension efforts.

Similarly, exchanges and SSPs need to block impressions originating from bot traffic in order to protect their bidders.  zveloDP™ prevention informs these platforms with the data necessary to filter out bid requests containing IPs from confirmed bots, as well as malicious URLs containing malware.

Contextual Data

Ensuring contextual alignment of campaigns to content ties directly into providing optimal relevancy to the user experience. The context of a page also provides valuable insight into audience.  As digital campaigns have evolved to require laser-focused targeting strategies, the need to maintain both audience and contextual relevancy has emerged. With privacy concerns and cookie limitations audience targeting capabilities are challenged, further highlighting the importance of contextual targeting. By examining the content of a page, zvelo is able to determine the context, which spans category, keyword, and sentiment about brands, topics or keywords, in turn providing a rich environment to buyers for reaching target audiences and to publishers for monetizing their inventory.
