DoubleVerify & MoPub Announces Expanded Partnership, Bringing DV’s Fraud Protection Capabilities to MoPub Marketplace

DoubleVerify, MoPub | August 20, 2021

DoubleVerify, a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics, today announced an expanded partnership with MoPub, a Twitter company, which provides monetisation solutions for leading mobile app publishers around the globe and enables advertisers, agencies, and demand-side platforms to programmatically reach their target audiences in-mobile apps. With the partnership, DV will provide full fraud protection, detection, and reporting for mobile app campaigns across MoPub’s programmatic exchange, MoPub Marketplace. MoPub Marketplace currently connects advertisers with more than 2 trillion ad requests from over 1.5 billion addressable users around the world.

“For advertising to perform, it must be seen by real people,” said Matt McLaughlin, COO of DoubleVerify. “Unfortunately, fraud follows the money- and as ad investments have shifted to mobile, bad actors are working hard to take advantage. For that reason, it’s imperative that brands have clarity into the quality of in-app inventory they buy. We’re excited to expand our partnership with MoPub to promote transparency, support mobile ad quality and performance, and empower marketers to reach their consumers wherever they are”.

DV and MoPub initially launched a partnership in 2019 where DV was the sole provider of fraud and IVT post-bid measurement for the MoPub Marketplace. This expanded partnership, which includes DV’s pre-bid avoidance segments, post-bid monitoring, and blocking, further extends quality coverage for global advertisers and publishers across one of the world’s premiere mobile app programmatic exchanges. With DV’s technology, MoPub can continuously refine the quality of mobile inventory available through MoPub Marketplace.

“Ad fraud is an industry-wide challenge, impacting publishers, advertisers, and SSPs. To ensure our inventory is top quality, MoPub continuously invests in keeping our Marketplace fraud-free, and having the right partnership in place is paramount for this effort,” said Michal Jacobsberg-Reiss, head of ecosystem partnerships of MoPub. “DV has been a strong partner for combatting new and emerging types of ad fraud. This expanded partnership supports our comprehensive, multi-step approach to ensure MoPub Marketplace is thoroughly vetted and monitored to uphold our already stringent, high standards of traffic quality”.

As part of its industry-leading mobile in-app fraud solution, DV identifies and screens the most significant types of in-app fraud, including background ad activity, hidden ads, app misrepresentation (spoofing), and measurement manipulation. Since March 2017, DV has been granted continued accreditation by the independent Media Rating Council (MRC), with the MRC certifying DV’s technology to detect and block sophisticated invalid traffic (SIVT) for mobile in-app display and video advertising.
