VIDAZOO selects HUMAN to safeguard publishers from traffic fraud across their network and advertising supply chain

Tel Aviv and New York — (February 2022) —Vidazoo by Perion (NASDAQ: PERI), a global video monetization technology leader, and HUMAN Security, Inc. (formerly White Ops), the worldwide leader of collective protection against sophisticated bot attacks and fraud, today announced a partnership that will secure publishers from fraudulent traffic and inaccurate video player performance.

The partnership will result in video player performance free from fraudulent traffic. It will also enable publishers to enjoy a transparent and precise performance measurement across their digital assets.

Sophisticated bots pose an increasingly significant threat to large-scale publishers, especially in tier one countries like the US, Canada, and the UK.

By leveraging HUMAN’s MediaGuard, Vidazoo provides publishers with technical evidence of bot traffic’s presence (or absence) with industry-leading speed while enhancing user experience.

Vidazoo can detect and mitigate bot activity and prevent bots from affecting inventory quality, protecting publisher’s reputation, and increasing advertiser spending.

According to Daniel Slivkin, CEO of Vidazoo, “some publishers may have never dealt with fraudulent traffic before while some consider it to be one of their worst enemies. The biggest issue with such traffic is that publishers directly lose reputation, which may eventually cause a complete loss of their ad accounts. The effect of such an action against a publisher is detrimental. In extreme cases, the damage may be irreversible.

Preserving the quality of traffic and transparency with publishers should be every tech provider’s focus area. Creating and promoting the safe web is the ad tech industry’s responsibility.”

“To sustain its growth, publishers and digital advertisers need a trusted and collectively protected marketplace built through global collaboration and strong partnerships,” said HUMAN Vice President, Product for MediaGuard, Alessandro Pireno. “As a leader in video monetization, Vidazoo’s partnership with HUMAN will enhance both organizations’ capabilities in the fight against cybercrime.”

Today, HUMAN verifies the humanity of more than 15 trillion digital interactions per week, offering enterprises a platform with unmatched visibility into fraudulent activity across the Internet. HUMAN achieves this scale through its continued expansion in cybersecurity, now offering a suite of products to protect the complete digital customer journey: BotGuard for Applications, BotGuard for Growth Marketing, and MediaGuard.
