Viant Partners with DoubleVerify, Adding Pre-bid Viewability and Brand Safety Targeting To Its Cross-Channel Platform


(Waltham, MA, November 28, 2017) — Viant, a self-service platform for cross-channel programmatic advertising, today announced the addition of pre-bid viewability and brand safety targeting to its platform from DoubleVerify, a leading independent provider of digital media quality solutions. The offering is available omni-channel across all of Viant’s 25+ supply partners, allowing marketers to reach audiences via video, display and native on both mobile and desktop.

DoubleVerify’s pre-bid targeting capabilities also provide Viant’s clients with additional tools to measure viewability rate and determine whether or not content is brand safe across display and video on mobile and desktop. DoubleVerify’s enhanced Fraud/SIVT detection tools will also enable Viant to track and prevent non-human traffic (NHT) across mobile and desktop.

“The addition of DoubleVerify to our platform reflects our continued investment in technology that streamlines pre-bid targeting through real-time evaluation of web and app data based on factors including viewability, brand safety, ad fraud, traffic ad quality, context and player size,” said Jeremy Haft, National Vice President at Viant. “With DoubleVerify’s granular pre-bid tools integrated into our people-based DSP, Viant is optimizing cross-channel and cross-device client campaigns, ensuring they can reach the right audiences while running on brand-safe inventory.”

Viant’s integration with DoubleVerify’s pre-bid viewability tools enables clients to target the right audiences before they start a campaign, rather than relying on post-campaign metrics to understand what was viewable. With 48% of programmatic display impressions not viewable, according to DoubleVerify, enhanced targeting and measurement capabilities are becoming critical for brands looking to optimize their media spend while running campaigns in brand safe environments.

“DoubleVerify is committed to bringing transparency to the market so advertisers can have the confidence that their investment was viewable and fraud-free,” said Steve Woolway, SVP Business Development at DoubleVerify. “This partnership with Viant highlights DV’s strength and innovation in mobile app measurement and targeting.”
