DON’T LET BAD ADS UNDERMINE
YOUR USER EXPERIENCE
BAD ADS ARE BAD FOR BUSINESS
Disruptive ad behaviors lead to increased complaints, decreased engagement, and sky-high bounce rates. Those are all good reasons for visitors to stop coming back to your site—and for advertisers to stop buying your ad space. But we’re always ready to detect and block against the threat groups responsible for mass disruption.

YOU’VE GOT THE POWER TO CONTROL IT ALL
You don’t want ads from your arch nemesis (think Batman advertising for the Joker) served on your site. Similarly, you probably don't want other competitive brands advertising on your site. Maybe you need to protect innocent eyes and ears from certain content or filter out undesirable content. Whatever the reason, our quality controls give you the ability to detect and block ads associated with more than 225,000 brands and 100+ categories.
KEEP ADVERTISER BLOCKED ADS OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND
Advertiser blocked ads can be a pain for publishers—putting placeholder ads that don’t always monetize in valuable ad spots. Confiant is the only platform that allows you to detect, block, and replace those ads instead of simply disabling click throughs or preventing placeholder ads from taking up valuable ad inventory. And it all happens in real time, so site visitors never know the difference.

When he’s not keeping the Confiant team collaborating and caffeinated, you can usually count on LD to be planning his next offshore sailing adventure or working on his yoga headstands.
