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

- ‘Companies are in freeze mode’: Coronavirus crisis strains ad tech licensing modelLike so many other industries, the coronavirus crisis is rapidly separating the distance between the haves and the have nots in the software-as-a-service sector. In ad tech in particular, there was a rush in the middle of the last decade for companies to switch their models from charging clients a percentage of the media they were spending to instead adopting a flat monthly fee for the use of their platforms. The latter model usually generates more predictable monthly recurring revenue — versus the ebbs and flows of advertiser spend — and SaaS businesses tend to fetch higher valuations than those ... read more3 hours ago

Without the ability to meet in person, agencies are cooking up ways to bring “pitch theater” — i.e. the physical presentation of an agency’s brand of creativity — to life online. “An office environment enables us to create endless opportunities for pitch theater so we asked ourselves, ‘What would the Black Sheep do to take the same level of magic to people’s living rooms?’,” said Tim Harvey, chief growth officer, BBH Group, adding ... read more3 hours ago

- With ad prices declining, creators increase their production volumeThe coronavirus outbreak has been a mixed bag for individual video creators. View counts and watch time for their videos have increased as people stay in their homes. But with many advertisers pulling back budgets, those viewership increases have primarily served to offset declines in branded content deals and platform ad prices. To deal with this dynamic in which viewership is up but advertising is down, creators are using this time to post more videos, including live videos on YouTube and Instagram, to attract new viewers in hopes that they will stick around after the pandemic is over and marketing ... read more3 hours ago
