InfoSum Collaborates with Experian on Privacy-Centric Identity Bridging Initiative
(New York, NY) October 26,2022 --InfoSum, the world’s leading data collaboration platform, today announced an agreement with Experian, the world’s leading global information services company. The initiative enables brands, partners, and media owners to leverage Experian’s identity graph to match their first-party datasets within InfoSum’s Secure Data Clean Room technology to enrich identity profiles and amplify match rates. The collaborative effort builds on InfoSum’s long-standing integration with Experian.
The multi-party collaboration partnership will also build on both Experian’s and InfoSum’s existing integrations with IRI, enabling marketers to enrich their first-party data, expand their existing audiences and increase match rates without having to move or share their data. Through Experian activation destinations, customers can also seamlessly push audiences across the supply chain and optimize campaign performance.
The integration builds on Experian’s collaboration with InfoSum as an InfoSum Bridge participant, which first launched in 2021. With access to InfoSum Bridge, Experian and InfoSum clients can leverage Experian’s digital and offline identifiers to strengthen interoperability and addressability across agencies, brands, and media owners while prioritizing consumer privacy.
In response to today’s more privacy-conscious consumers, brands and media owners have adapted to ensure that data is appropriately and safely handled. InfoSum’s clean room enables marketers, in a neutral and secure way, to enhance their data to maximize addressability across channels by seamlessly connecting customer identity from multiple sources.
