Netacea research: Skewed analytics cost businesses as much as click fraud

Manchester, UK—December 2021—Netacea, the bot detection and mitigation specialist, today announced results from a new report that shows skewed analytics caused by bots cost businesses just as much as click fraud, despite click fraud’s much bigger profile.
