The Media Trust & ExchangeWire Release Global Malware Study

Today ExchangeWire released the first global study of the perceptions of malware and malvertising in the digital advertising ecosystem. The research and accompanying report were created in partnership with The Media Trust, the world’s leading media verification, malware protection, and advertising quality assurance platform.

The results will be revealed and discussed later today at an event in London later today.

From the Forward:

The digital advertising ecosystem is in a state of crisis, with many questioning its security. Each week bears witness to another media story regarding malware-laden ads infecting devices to cause harm to consumers. The presence of malware in the digital environment is no longer a topic relegated to advertising professionals – it’s become a mainstream and global issue.

Each year the number of ad-delivered malware infections increases, with The Media Trust detecting a year-over-year doubling in growth for the past several years. Clearly, malware is not new, which presents an interesting question: What do digital advertising professionals think about malware?

This study provides insight into the opinions of agencies, ad tech providers and publishers across several of the world’s largest publishing markets. In general, most are aware of the malvertising risks in their environments and almost everyone agrees it’s on the rise. However, there are some surprising results, and several opinions do not correlate with industry data:

• 50%+ believe malware is less of a problem on mobile

• US and UK publishers feel malware is a bigger issue for ecommerce than publisher/media websites

• Industry professionals believe 72% of malware exists on non-premium sites

• 20% of publishers believe their websites’ are safe from the constant threat of malware

    • Agencies baulk as P&G plans to cut another 50% from its roster and bring more media capabilities in-house
      Procter & Gamble will cut its agency roster by 50% by the close of 2018, the latest act in a four-year cull witnessing some 4,700 firms axed from its books. For some agencies, this is par for the course in an era defined by austerity, but others are now worrying that P&G is cutting to the bone, not just trimming fat. The advertising giant has been on a massive cost-savings drive since 2014 when it announced it would reduce the 6,000 agencies it works with by nearly 40% and cut agency and production spending by $400m. By 2016, it began ... read more

    • Is it time to reposition positioning?
      Quick! What’s the difference between a positioning statement and set of brand values?  Or a value proposition and a brand’s DNA?  What about a brand promise and a brand essence?  If you answered ‘er’ to any of the above, then you are not alone.  Week long workshops have been spent parsing out the distinctions between ‘DNA’ and ‘purpose’. Cut through the froth, however, and we are talking about positioning.  But whatever we call it, positioning is central to what marketers do. Yet, here’s a scary New Year’s thought: is it time to reposition positioning? When Ries and Trout first proclaimed ... read more

As AgileCat has lived in the heart of Philly for 17 years, you can bet that this agency – along with the many millions in the region - is completely on fire at the thought of finally winning a Super Bowl [#FlyEaglesFly! - The Drum Americas editor].
