NEW YORK, New York. – Forensiq by Impact, a full-funnel ad fraud protection solution, announced it has earned accreditation by the Media Rating Council (MRC) for its display and video served impressions measurement (desktop, mobile web & in-app) and display and video viewability measurement (desktop & mobile web). Additionally, the accreditation marks compliance with the sophisticated invalid traffic provisions (which are inclusive of both SIVT and GIVT filtration) of MRC’s Invalid Traffic Detection and Filtration guidelines (desktop, mobile web & in-app).

We’re thrilled to not only be recognized for our uniquely capable mobile expertise, but also for our reliable technology that’s protecting the industry from fraud across every part of the marketing funnel.”
