Amobee partners with InfoSum on alternative identity solution for advertisers and media owners
Decentralized customer data ecosystem guards against deprecation of third party cookies
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and LONDON (March 17, 2021) — Amobee, a global leader in advertising technology that unifies TV, digital and social to deliver results that drive customer growth, today announced a partnership with InfoSum, the world’s leading identity infrastructure provider, to bring alternative, privacy compliant identity solutions to advertiser and broadcaster clients around the world.
The partnership will allow both Amobee and InfoSum to jointly offer their respective clients access to leading identity and media buying solutions through InfoSum’s powerful decentralized customer data ecosystem and Amobee’s programmatic and broadcaster buying environments. Through this collaboration, Amobee will empower advertisers to find their audiences in environments where traditional identity markers are no longer scalable. In addition, Amobee’s broadcaster clients now have the opportunity to provide additional capabilities and addressability within their platform.
“While most competitors are focused on the replacement of third party cookies through alternative identity solutions, Amobee is differentiating itself by also betting on ecosystems not reliant on these forms of cookieless identifiers,” says Maria Flores-Portillo, General Manager of EMEA for Amobee. “As we draw closer to the deprecation of third party cookies, we believe the decentralization of data will play a key role in the future of the media industry and InfoSum have a head start with their impressive infrastructure.”
“The media industry is going through a shift in the way advertisers and media owners collaborate to deliver better data-driven customer experiences, but through this new partnership with Amobee, companies can access a future-proofed approach to identity,” said Richard Foster, Chief Revenue Officer at InfoSum. “As identity becomes increasingly disparate, an agnostic approach to identity is needed to engage consumers wherever they are, across whatever content they are consuming. By using InfoSum’s decentralized identity infrastructure and Amobee’s converged media platform, brands and media owners are empowered to deliver high-performing marketing campaigns that prioritize the privacy of their customers, and the security of their data.”
