Combined Solution Helps Top Publishers Efficiently Protect Against Malvertising
NEW YORK, NY, and MCLEAN, VA – Shiny Ads, a premium advertising technology company, and The Media Trust, the leading provider of automated monitoring and transparency solutions, today announced a partnership that integrates Media Scanner into the Shiny Ads platform to automate the process of scanning new ad creative.
Typically, a publisher needs to manually test all advertising creative for malware and other potentially dangerous issues but now, Shiny Ads will automatically notify The Media Trust when there is new creative to be validated and the publisher is alerted if an issue is found. This approach adds additional efficiencies to the premium advertising process including saving time from doing manual quality assurance and also avoiding monetary loss if a malicious ad is displayed on the publisher site. Top media companies such as 24/7 Media are already realizing the benefits of this joint offering.
“Shiny Ads and The Media Trust have each brought many benefits to our direct advertising initiatives at 24/7 Media”, said Rob Schneider, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy and Platform Development, 24/7 Media. “The combined functionality allows us to take direct advertising orders in a completely automated manner, thus reducing our costs tremendously.”
The end-to-end Shiny Ads programmatic direct platform increases efficiencies for publishers and advertisers by streamlining the process of buying and selling guaranteed inventory. Through direct integration into publishers’ ad servers, the programmatic direct platform automates the entire ad buying process to speed time-to-market and decrease costs while generating net new revenues.
“Shiny Ads is always looking for like-minded ad-tech companies that work exclusively with direct sold inventory so we can offer more value to our common top tier publishers,” said Roy Pereira, Founder and CEO of Shiny Ads. “This integration demonstrates how we are once again leading the industry by introducing innovations that make the direct ad buying process more efficient. We are proud to be partnering with The Media Trust so our customers can realize additional benefits.”
The Media Trust’s Media Scanner services provide creative quality assurance, malware detection and data security. By working with hundreds of companies across the entire desktop and mobile ad ecosystems The Media Trust has developed the world’s largest malvertising monitoring network.
“While our customers understand the need to scan their creative for potential issues, they have always wanted the process to be automated,” said Alex Calic, Chief Revenue Office of The Media Trust. “With the automated Shiny Ads platform, our common publisher customers will now have their ad tags automatically scanned and paused in real-time if there is an issue, adding new efficiencies to the direct ad sales process.”
