“AppsFlyer is in a unique position to apply this game-changing technology and leverage our scale across the mobile industry, arming marketers worldwide with the best solution to combat fraud. We are excited to add DeviceRank to the AppsFlyer Active Fraud Suite, as we remain committed to fighting fraud and helping cleanse the app ecosystem of this problem.”The company is of the opinion that DeviceRank architecture and machine learning would allow its database and algorithms to grow, learn and adapt as new mobile devices come online, new interactions are catalogued and user engagement patterns evolve.
global player in mobile attribution and marketing analytics, has launched an anti-fraud technology, called DeviceRank, that provides protection for mobile app advertisers by automatically “cleaning fraudulent devices” from marketing campaigns aimed at driving app installs and post-install activities. The company claims that DeviceRank works similarly to a Credit Score, a mathematical algorithm designed to predict risk, identifying questionable behavior and offering enhanced protection. The new technology leverages a proprietary big data-powered algorithm to build an anonymized, multi-dimensional rating of every mobile device. Each device, AppsFlyer explains, is rated on a scale from C (fraudulent), through B, A, AA and AAA. Devices with a “C” rating are automatically excluded from AppsFlyer’s attributed installs and analytics,” explains. “Fraudsters and scammers are growing increasingly sophisticated, tricking advertisers into paying for both installs and in-app engagement. DeviceRank takes a radically different approach, cutting off fraud at the source and adding transparency to our industry in order to protect advertisers, our partners and the entire market,” said Oren Kaniel, Co-founder and CEO, AppsFlyer.
