Tokyo-based Spider Labs has recently had its IP Blocklist API adopted by Japan's GENIEE DSP in the ongoing effort to combat online ad fraud. Spider Labs' Demand-Side Ad Fraud Countermeasure Analyzes over 10 billion IP addresses every day to identify invalid traffic.
GENIEE DSP will use the IP Blocklist API to filter out General Invalid Traffic (GIVT) and Sophisticated Invalid Traffic (SIVT). GIVT includes traffic that can be identified by routine filtering, such as known data center traffic and search engine crawlers, while SIVT includes various types of invalid traffic, including traffic disguised as traffic caused by someone else, including Ad Fraud.
"Ad fraud has become an issue that cannot be ignored in recent years, and we feel that interest in demand-side countermeasures is growing year by year," said Sayaka Kobayashi, COO of the Demand Side Business Division at Geniee, Inc. "We are very pleased to be using the IP Blocklist API as a countermeasure against invalid traffic, and we believe that it will contribute to the improvement of transparency for our clients who use GENIEE DSP in the future. GENIEE DSP will continue to adopt cutting-edge technology that helps our clients increase brand awareness, acquire users, and achieve higher advertising cost-effectiveness."
Kazuhiro Miyamoto, Product Manager at Spider Labs, added, "We are pleased to be working with Geniee, one of the largest DSPs in Japan. The importance of ad verification, including countermeasures against invalid traffic, has increased dramatically over the past few years. We are confident that this collaboration has led to a healthier digital advertising industry. Spider Labs remains committed to building a secure and happy future through technology."
