iCrossing Implements AdSafe Brand Protection for Display Advertisers

Preventative Technology Enables Brand Safe Display Strategies for Premium Brand Advertisers

New York, NY – AdSafe Media, the rating standard of online media, today announced a partnership with iCrossing (http://news.icrossing.com), a global digital marketing agency, to provide preventative brand protection for clients across all online display advertising campaigns.

AdSafe’s Brand Safety Firewall ensures that only ad placements compliant with brand guidelines and insertion orders are served. AdSafe technology will enable iCrossing to execute brand safe display advertising campaigns for their premium brand advertisers, while maximizing the reach and efficiency of campaign spend.

― Many of our clients have invested heavily in innovative display tactics – including search and site retargeting and social targeting – as part of their overall performance display marketing programs,” said Dax Hamman, vice president of display media at iCrossing.

―Still, any display tactic that includes media bought from media exchanges carries with it an increased risk of aligning the brand against unfavorable content. With AdSafe, we see a way to combine innovation with preventative protection for display advertising.

― iCrossing has a proven track record of developing relationships between consumers and brands across digital channels. “This partnership allows iCrossing to continue to drive these connections while maintaining the level of brand safety and protection that is demanded by brand marketers,”commented Kent Wakeford, Co-Founder and EVP of AdSafe.
