Adtech Studio of CyberAgent, Inc. (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; President: Susumu Fujita; listed in the first section of Tokyo Stock Exchange; Stock Code: 4751) develops services in the ad technology field. Adtech Studio has added the β version of “ProFit-X Brand Safety Screening before Posting,” the function to distribute only ads that have passed the screening for the purpose of maintaining the quality of ad stocks and excluding ads that would degrade the reliability of advertising media to “CA ProFit-X,” a smartphone-specialized SSP.
Recently, ads and creative works that are considered inappropriate have increased in the Internet ad market, and the risk that such ads are posted in the media has been augmenting. The posting of such ads and creative works would diminish the brand value of the media and significantly damage the value of ad stocks in the Internet ad market.
“CA ProFit-X” has been promoting the exclusion of illegal and hazardous websites, which could degrade the brand value of advertisers, for making Internet ads sound. This time, in order to solve this issue, we have developed “ProFit-X Brand Safety Screening before Posting” as a new function to distribute only ads that satisfy our original criteria.
In detail, this function is to examine ad information obtained from demand-side partners based on the original screening criteria of “CA ProFit-X,” which have been developed in cooperation with the media, and distribute ads and creative works that have passed the screening. Currently, screening is conducted mainly by the system, and partially manually. By the spring of 2019, we plan to automate the entire system.
“CA ProFit-X” will keep operating products with the aim of contributing to the sound Internet ad market.
