Partnership Enables Index Exchange Customers to Take Viewability, Fraud, Brand Safety and Clutter, Into Account on Transactions

NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) -  Index Exchange, the principled exchange for publishers, today announced it has partnered with Integral Ad Science, the leader in quantifying digital media quality, to expand access to quality demand and provide publishers with greater transparency into their media.

Integral Ad Science works with more than 1,000 advertisers, including many of the Advertising Age's Top 100 Global Advertisers, and represents holistic media quality. The company works to ensure it is combatting some of the biggest threats in the industry, including low viewability, ad fraud, and brand safety risk, across display, video, and mobile.

"We're excited to partner with Index Exchange and applaud their commitment to quality," said Harmon Lyons, VP of Business Development, Integral Ad Science. "Discrepancy-free viewability data is easier to act on, ensuring Index Exchange and their publishers are able to offer their advertisers a complete view of the inventory in order to make more effective campaign decisions."

Today's partnership enables Index Exchange to deploy a pixel from Integral Ad Science that provides full visibility into media quality on its exchange. Index is then able to share that information with its publishers, so that both parties are able to quantify, measure, and optimize accordingly. Integral's ability to provide discrepancy-free measurement makes sure both buyers and sellers see the same numbers when optimizing, trafficking, or transacting on viewability. 

"Working with Integral Ad Science reaffirms Index's principles; to provide our customers with the highest quality demand from the most trusted sources," said Andrew Casale, President and CEO at Index Exchange. "There is a very strong alignment between our offering and Integral's business. Bringing the two companies together is a natural evolution to meet the industry's demand for more efficient and transparent digital advertising."
