Our Partnership with IAS

IAS provides industry-leading pre-click fraud measurement and protection, using a three pillar approach:

  • Rules-based detection uses automated rule checks to identify ad impression behavioral anomalies 
  • AI/Machine Learning uses big data to detect hidden or uncommon patterns in impression delivery, traffic sources, and page interactions and more
  • IAS Threat Lab uses malware analysis and reverse engineering to uncover emerging threats before they arise

Combined with Lunio’s best-in-class IVT detection and prevention software, the partnership allows us to stop more bots than ever before, without over-blocking real human clicks. 

In short, Lunio gives performance marketers a competitive advantage in these 3 areas: 

  1. Transparency: Deep dive into ad traffic and click data to pinpoint where invalid visits are damaging campaign performance.
  2. Empowerment: Proactively optimize audience and placement targeting using click data and traffic quality signals you can’t get elsewhere.
  3. Quality: Prevent invalid traffic from wasting your ad spend and contaminating your data, for laser focused targeting of genuine prospects. 

This partnership marks a crucial step forward in providing marketers with the most effective invalid and junk traffic data possible. We’re proud to partner with IAS in a joint commitment to giving marketers reliable analytics and protection that drive quality and — most importantly — business results.
