DoubleVerify Receives Third Consecutive Certification for Online Ad Viewability from the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC)

DoubleVerify IQ Viewability Advanced Product Awarded Continued ABC Certification

LONDON – 16 January 2017 – DoubleVerify (DV), the recognised leader in digital quality solutions, today announced it has received certification from ABC for the third consecutive year for its IQ Viewability Advanced solution. The accreditation further validates the effectiveness of DV solutions to optimise digital media investments by ensuring an ad is viewable to a consumer.

DV solutions successfully met all the criteria of the rigorous ABC testing performed, including tracking ad viewability within multiple cross-domain iFrames on all four of the audited browsers, which has historically been an industry blind spot.

“The latest ABC certification provides independent validation of the strength and value of the DV ad viewability solution, especially as the industry moves towards increased measurement and transparency,” said Wayne Gattinella, CEO of DoubleVerify. “Continued certification is another testament to our full commitment to delivering the highest levels of brand-safe, fraud-free, highly-engaging media for the world’s largest advertisers.”

Simon Redlich, CEO at ABC, said, “We are delighted to verify the DoubleVerify IQ Viewability Advanced solution against the JICWEBS Viewability Principles. ABC’s Viewability Certification delivers reassurance to buyers that the company has met robust, industry-agreed standards. It also shows a commitment to transparency that is essential for the continued growth of trust and confidence within the digital ad trading industry.”

IQ Viewability Advanced is part of the DoubleVerify Impression Quality Advanced suite of services, offering brands the ability to ensure their digital media is authentic.

DV also received ABC certification for content verification for the fourth year in a row in May 2016.
