Dstillery First to Achieve IAB's QAG 2.0 Certification Through BPA's iCompli Service

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2014) - Dstillery, the pioneer in cross-device audience targeting for brands, is the first organization toachieve independent certification to the Interactive Advertising Bureau's (IAB) Quality Assurance Guidelines 2.0 (QAG 2.0) compliance program. iCompli, the interactive assurance service from BPA Worldwide, confirmed Dstillery's conformance to the IAB standards.

The IAB's Quality Assurance Guidelines help establish trust between buyers and sellers in a complex and ever-changing digital advertising ecosystem. The 2.0 program has recently been expanded to include all buyers and sellers of advertising, and now offers the option of independent third-party validation of a company's certification.

"At Dstillery, quality is central to every action we take -- from the ad impressions we serve to the service we deliver to our clients," said Tom Phillips, CEO of Dstillery and co-chair of the IAB's Traffic of Good Intent task force. "This certification demonstrates our commitment to going above and beyond on our clients' behalf, and to being a leader in quality standards."

"We are thrilled to be working with Dstillery as they become the first organization independently certified to the IAB's QAG 2.0 standards," explained Richard Murphy, BPA's Senior Vice President, Technology Assurance. "Dstillery's decision to achieve the 2.0 certification using the iCompli audit process is testament to their focus on transparency and accountability, and allows them to further promote trust and assurance in the online advertising marketplace."
