...and counting.


The Most Effective

Stop relying on tracking previous bad actors or using a pre-scanning environment for detecting malicious activity. Our patented behavioral analysis methods are the most effective at detecting and preventing malvertising in real-time.

Positive Revenue Impact

Because we stop bad actors after they have already paid you, it helps to preserve and enhance monetization KPIs. And because we let the auction complete, you keep all your revenue and ultimately discouraging bad actors from attacking your site in the long term (as it is unprofitable for them to do so).

Fewer False Positives

Because we wait and block malicious code only when it begins to trigger, there is a lower risk of false positives.


Our solution runs in real-time, and doesn’t rely on searching a large blocklist so there are no impacts on speed for the user.

Detect Novel Threats

Behavioral analysis allows cleanAD to prevent new attack attempts and novel threats in real time even if we haven't seen them before.

Not all solutions are created equal.

Understanding when different solutions attempt to block malvertising is key to comparing effectiveness.

Step 1

Campaign Preparation

Bad actor sets up a malvertising campaign.

Step 2

Creative Submission

Bad actor submits their campaign for creative review.

Block Attempt

Pre-Scan Solutions

Pre-Scanning Tools attempt to check for malicious activity at this step. Bad actors can detect scanning environments and hide malicious activity.

Step 3

Campaign Launch

Bad actor's campaign is launched, begins running and begins attempting to deliver impressions.

Block Attempt

Blocklist Solutions

Blocklists try to catch known bad actors at this stage. These tools require checking a long list of known bad actors and can introduce latency.

Step 4

Creative Renders

Ad creative renders on the page, and malvertiser pays for their impression. (1)-1
Effective Block


cleanAD uses behavioral analysis to recognize and block code as it begins to attempt to execute malicious activity.

Step 5

Malicious Activity Attempt

The malicious portion of the code begins to execute, potentially damaging the user experience and publisher revenue... unless you are using cleanAD.

Erik Requidan
CEO, Media Tradecraft

"Choosing cleanAD was one of the best investments we ever made for overall user experience. We were regularly dealing with unhappy readers who were frustrated with redirects, but all of that disappeared once we began using cleanAD. Getting up and running was quick and easy, and maintenance is almost non-existent."
