MRC Continues Meetrics’ Accreditation for Sophisticated Invalid Traffic Detection and Filtration and for Desktop and Mobile Web Viewability Measurement

Berlin – Meetrics, the leading European software company for advertising measurement and analytics, has been granted continued accreditation by the Media Rating Council (MRC). In May 2018 the toughest privacy and security law in the world was put into effect in Europe. Fighting against the growing threat for advertisers of ad fraud, Meetrics ensured that its solution with Sophisticated Invalid Traffic (SIVT) detection and filtration functionality for Desktop & Mobile Web traffic complies the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the strict guidelines of the MRC. Meetrics’ MRC accreditation for its measurement of desktop and mobile web viewable impressions and related viewability metrics for both display and video ads was continued too.

Meetrics’ Ad Attention Manager Suite brings together four powerful components to manage the quality of ads: Viewability Check, Ad Fraud Prevention, Audience Verification and Brand Protection, the first two of which include MRC accredited metrics.

“Meetrics continues to demonstrate its industry leadership by maintaining MRC accreditation for its desktop and mobile web Viewability and SIVT solutions,” said George W. Ivie, Executive Director and CEO of the MRC. “Meetrics has been accredited by MRC since 2015 for viewability measurement, and since 2017 for SIVT detection and filtration, and this latest accreditation action provides assurance to the marketplace that Meetrics’ practices are keeping pace with the rapidly evolving digital landscape.”

“For more than a decade, advertisers have relied on Meetrics’ analytics and measurement solutions to invest their digital marketing budgets in the most effective way.” said Max von Hilgers, Meetrics Co-Founder and Managing Director. “With our continued accreditation by the MRC, advertisers can be sure that Meetrics is providing the highest possible standard of accountability.”
