IAS Labs

Threat Lab

IAS originally launched the Threat Lab in 2015, working with experts in multiple industries, law enforcement, and academic institutions to examine the forces behind digital advertising fraud. The lab is comprised of dedicated teams of specialized malware analysts, data engineers, white-hat-hackers, and data scientists who use machine learning, browser analysis, behavioral analysis, and targeted reconnaissance to identify and stop fraudulent activity.

The lab’s mission is two-fold: protecting the greater community from malicious attacks with proactive surveillance and safeguarding publishers and advertisers’ digital media investments.
