Industry Voices

Hear from industry experts on the benefits of the Publisher Trust Index, a new ad industry standard for publisher quality. 


“As ad spend on channels like CTV grows by leaps and bounds, advertisers need greater transparency into their programmatic buys. At Verizon Media, trust and transparency are paramount, and insights like Pixalate’s new CTV and mobile app ratings help drive further visibility into the programmatic ad supply chain.”

Patrick McCormack
VP, Global Partnerships, Verizon Media



“I’ve worked in the advertising industry for 20 plus years, and the Publisher Trust Index that Pixalate is introducing will truly be a game-changer. As a company that is laser focused on maximizing the CTV space, we need a resource like this to make sure that we’re operating with the highest quality insights possible. Many industries have already taken massive steps toward increasing transparency, and Pixalate is helping to drive that with this new offering."


Jerrold Son
Executive Director, Ad Operations, XUMO



“Pixalate’s Publisher Trust Index, and its free Publisher Diagnostic Report, are a great toolset to help identify invalid traffic for mobile and CTV app publishers. Understanding the problem is the first step in stamping it out. The Pixalate reports bring transparency to ad-related quality issues, and we’re excited to partner with them.”


François Zolezzi
Head of Supply Quality, Criteo



“Connected TV and mobile app advertising are both growing, but for buyers to fully embrace the potential opportunity, we need to enhance access to high-quality, brand-safe inventory. Pixalate’s Publisher Trust Index is an important tool for advertisers that want to expand their CTV or mobile app footprint beyond a handful of household names. These rankings will shine a light on the broader portfolio of premium apps that can deliver on the programmatic promise of scale and efficiency.”

Eric Bozinny
Senior Director, Marketplace Quality, PubMatic



“The Publisher Trust Index brings additional transparency to the ever-expanding mobile app and CTV ad marketplaces. Giving publishers the ability to self-assess and verify quality-related issues like ad fraud free of charge will be one of the most disruptive forces of good to hit the advertising industry in some time.”
