Videology today announced it has been Certified Against Fraud by the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG). Videology is a software provider for converged TV and video advertising. Videology investors include Catalyst Investors, Comcast Ventures, NEA, Pinnacle Ventures, Valhalla Partners, and the company is headquartered in New York, USA, with key offices in Baltimore, Austin, Toronto, London, Paris, Madrid, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and sales teams across North America.
The mission of TAG’s Certified Against Fraud program is to combat fraudulent non-human traffic in the digital advertising supply chain. For years, Videology has been at the forefront of the industry’s anti-bot movement. In 2015, Videology was the first video advertising software provider to integrate with fraud prevention leader White Ops to offer pre-bid bot prevention to both advertisers and suppliers; since then, Videology has blocked over 550 billion in fraudulent bot requests on its platform.
“TAG Certification is an exciting achievement for us in our ongoing fight against ad fraud—a topic of paramount importance to our customers and the industry overall,” said Mark McKee, EVP, NA Sales & Marketing, Videology. “The certification process was detailed and rigorous, but we felt it was crucial to demonstrate that we’re offering our customers the standards of quality and transparency they expect—and should expect—when trusting us with their advertising dollars.”
According to TAG, the Certification Against Fraud shows that Videology meets their requirements for “prevention and combating of online transaction fraud, including fraud detection, source identification, process transparency and building accountability.”
