So, who are we?

Mantis is an AI led content verification tool, specializing in brand safety and cookie-less targeting. Launched in 2019 under the Reach PLC umbrella, Mantis partners with digital publishers as an intelligent alternative to traditional keyword blocking, and creates highly accurate contextual targeting for premium publishers to sell their inventory without the use of personal data.

Reach is home to the UK and Ireland's most iconic digital platforms, magazines and newspapers. From the Mirror, Daily Express and OK!, to our regional titles such as the Liverpool Echo, BirminghamLive and the Manchester Evening News (plus lots more), our brands and the stories we cover are as varied as our people.

We help all kinds of people share experiences through our stories because we believe this is what makes us human. Oh, and we should probably also mention that with a monthly readership of 47 million people, Reach is the largest commercial publisher in the UK. At Reach, not only will you feel better understood, you will also feel you understand other people better too.
