This Startup Claims to Verify 90% of Digital Ads and Save Brands From Losing Cash

One-year-old tech company Authenticated Digital says it has a system that will authenticate 90 percent of digital ad impressions, and it's pitching the software to agencies and publishers starting today. Its program is designed to determine if a promo ran on the correct Web page—did it appear on CNN.com, or another of Time Warner's many sites, or on a different property altogether, for example?

"This builds a complete audit trail." Here is a tech-heavy summary on how the system works: Marketers add a JavaScript tracker to their creative on the demand-side platform or ad server.  When a Web page requests the ad, the JavaScript tracker travels with the ad. Once the promo is loaded, the system gathers snippets of information about it as well as the page or app environment and stitches them together. "We then process the information on our servers to understand whether the impression is authentic or if it's not authentic, and the reason why," Reeve said. The system creates an audit containing all of the suppliers and data providers involved in the transaction. Users can log in to a dashboard to view reports and... Continue reading at 'AdWeek'
