“We’re excited for the opportunity to help PulsePoint scale their commitment to inventory quality throughout Europe with our new brand safety technology,” said Andreas Gysler, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Zulu5. “We enable PulsePoint to get valuable insights and blocking intel by screening blacklisted sites, analyzing ad delivery chains that can lead to questionable inventory, and exposing illegal iFrame embeds and referrer fakes in real-time.”
