Heartbleed Exploit: No Risk to Medialets Clients and Partners

Posted by | Data & Analytics, Technology | No Comments

Dear friends, clients and partners,

I have some good news—no Medialets-run servers or mobile apps were ever subject to the so-called Heartbleed vulnerability. All of your data is safe and secure. There is nothing you need to do.

If you haven’t heard about Heartbleed yet, on April 7th, researchers learned about a security flaw in certain versions of OpenSSL, a widely used encryption service. This flaw was dubbed Heartbleed, and it made it possible for attackers to potentially gain sensitive information from a system that used those specific versions of OpenSSL. Read More

IAB Urges Advertisers to Embrace HTML5. We Agree.

Posted by | Creative, Servo™, Technology | No Comments

The IAB Mobile Marketing Center of Excellence this week published An Open Letter from Publishers to Advertisers that urges advertisers to embrace HTML5 as the primary authoring technology for digital advertising. This will not only help to create better mobile advertising today, but also prepare agencies for the “cross-platform” advertising of the near future.

We couldn’t agree more. And we think that the previous 5+ years of leading the industry with innovative HTML5 advertising solutions that have empowered brands to make an impact on mobile devices is proof that great mobile ad creative can and is being built with HTML5 today. Just check out our Gallery for a few (hundred) good examples. And with the recent launch of Servo, advertisers now have access to the best mobile ad serving platform in the industry that efficiently delivers and thoroughly measures HTML5 advertising to virtually any mobile app or website.

Introducing Servo: advanced serving, measurement and real attribution for mobile

Posted by | Measurement, Medialets, Servo™ | No Comments

The topic that comes up most frequently in conversations we have with marketers, and the one that dominates the mobile conference circuit, is measurement. How do you measure mobile, and how do you know the numbers are right? How do you know that a dollar invested in mobile is worth a dollar – or more! – than a dollar invested in any other channel? The audience numbers and growth of usage are staggering, but without real, consistent, attributable metrics it’s difficult to justify significantly shifting spend based on anything more than intuition.

Posted by | Medialets, Press Releases | No Comments

Today we’re excited to share that Medialets has closed $10 million dollars from Greenspring Associates to accelerate the growth of our mobile and tablet advertising platform.

Since 2008 Medialets has been dedicated to enabling the industry’s most effective mobile advertising campaigns. In the time since we launched, we’ve had extraordinary visibility into the challenges that both advertisers and publishers face when taking a mobile ad to market. The fragmented device landscape, vast array of disparate ad specs and lack of standards in reporting metrics and methodologies are just a few things that can chip away at the value of a marketer’s dollar. And, while there are many companies focused on solving individual pieces of the overall process, the vast array of solutions available to a marketer can be daunting. Read More
