OREANDA-NEWS. October 02, 2015. Amobee, a leading global marketing technology company, announced today that it has been listed as number one on the Mobile Seller Trust Index (MSTI), an independent quality ranking based on the evaluation of 125 supply-side platforms with in-app mobile inventory.

Leading ad fraud protection firm, Pixalate, released the MSTI to provide clarity on how supply quality in mobile should be assessed. The MSTI analyzed more than 5 billion impressions based on five factors: reach, general invalid traffic (GIVT), sophisticated invalid traffic (SIVT), transparency, and precision and availability of location data.

Amobee received the index's highest rating of an "A" in the crucial areas of GIVT, SIVT, transparency and location, scoring the highest ranking with an overall score 93, placing Amobee as number 1 out of 125 supply-slide platforms, including businesses who specialize only in mobile.

Mobile advertising continues to be critical to marketers, with mobile ad spending in the United States expected to reach nearly \\$29 billion in 2015, accounting for 49 percent of overall digital ad spend, according to eMarketer. In-app mobile ads represent more than 70 percent of the overall mobile advertising industry. Based on Pixalate's findings, fraud accounts for 38 percent of in-app mobile ad inventory, creating a significant industry-wide issue.

"We created the Mobile Seller Trust Index to help the industry identify the most trustworthy Mobile Ad Platforms to work with, and we congratulate Amobee on achieving a top tier ranking," said Jalal Nasir, CEO, Pixalate.
