IAS partners with Snap to offer AI-driven brand safety measurement for advertisers

Integral Ad Science, a global media measurement and optimization platform, has announced a first-to-market partnership with Snap Inc. to provide advertisers with increased transparency across their Snapchat campaigns through IAS’s AI-driven Total Media Quality (TMQ) Brand Safety and Suitability Measurement product.

Lisa Utzschneider, CEO, IAS: “We are excited to partner with Snap to deliver our best-in-class measurement solution for marketers to safeguard and scale their businesses on Snapchat. Snap is focused on developing ad offerings in a premium and safe content ecosystem, and our partnership will give advertisers actionable data to maximize their investment across Snapchat.”

Aligned to the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM) standards, the new offering will give advertisers the benefit of third-party validation with trusted and transparent industry metrics. IAS’s Total Media Quality product provides unique insight into video content through frame-by-frame analysis of images, audio, and text to provide the most accurate measurement at scale.

Patrick Harris, President of Americas, Snap: “We’re thrilled to partner with IAS to offer Snapchat advertisers an additional layer of brand safety and suitability. We’ve built safety into the fundamental architecture of our platform and are dedicated to providing our community and partners a healthy and safe experience. We look forward to continuing to invest in products and partnerships across the brand safety ecosystem.”

IAS is a member of the Snapchat Brand Safety Coalition and has partnered with Snap to drive greater transparency and media quality measurability of in-app photos and videos. Since 2018, IAS has provided Viewability and Invalid Traffic Measurement for global advertisers across their in-app video buys.

IAS’s post-bid Brand Safety and Suitability Measurement product will be available for campaigns on Snapchat later this year.
