LONDON, July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pixalate, the global market-leading ad-fraud protection, privacy, and compliance analytics platform for Connected TV (CTV) and Mobile Advertising, today released its first Q1 2024 Sell-Side Platform (SSP) Brand Safety Risk Ranking Reports for Roku and Amazon Fire TV. These reports provide a comparative analysis of sell-side platforms’ brand safety risk levels based on open programmatic ad traffic and CTV app coverage. 

Pixalate’s data science team analyzed programmatic advertising activity across 6k+ CTV apps and 3+ billion global open programmatic advertising impressions in Q1 2024 to compile this research.

The reports are an analysis of Sell-Side Platforms (SSPs) that sell ads on the highest share of CTV apps – on the Roku and Amazon Fire TV app stores, respectively – that are rated by Pixalate as “high” risk for brand safety. The reports also rank SSPs based on the percentage of open programmatic ads sold on apps marked as “high,” “medium,” and “low” for brand safety risk.

Pixalate assesses brand safety risk based on both the description of the app and the in-app content to assign a risk rating of high, medium, or low at an app level. Visit the Pixalate Knowledge Base to learn more about Pixalate’s brand safety risk ratings.
