LiveRamp and Epsilon Partner to Protect Publishers and Brands from Impact of Third-Party Cookie Deprecation
LiveRamp (NYSE: RAMP) announced today a partnership with global advertising and marketing technology company Epsilon that enhances user privacy while enabling publishers to boost revenue, and brands to leverage addressable inventory.
LiveRamp's Authenticated Traffic Solution (ATS) enables publishers to connect first-party user data with LiveRamp's consistent identity framework, to allow advertising on authenticated inventory in a privacy-forward manner. ATS enables addressable inventory without third-party cookies or mobile identifiers, enabling marketing to real people across Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and other browsers on LiveRamp's pseudonymous identifier, RampID.
PubLink is powered by Epsilon's identity solution, CORE ID, and uses a publisher's hashed authentication data to create a privacy-safe identifier that represents a site visitor and can be utilized downstream by advertisers for messaging specific consumers. Now, ATS publishers can enable PubLink within ATS and transact on Epsilon's CORE ID interoperably with RampID to make their authenticated inventory available to additional advertisers and demand-side platforms. Brands using LiveRamp can continue activating on Epsilon Digital using RampID to access authenticated inventory programmatically.
Enabling PubLink within ATS lets publishers recognize more authenticated consumers without cookies, unlocking additional revenue-generating inventory and delivering a more personalized ad experience. Most uniquely, leveraging PubLink and RampID within ATS allows publishers to connect to advertiser demand from Epsilon Digital, which services both Epsilon's global brand clients and those of its parent company, Publicis Groupe.
Additional benefits for publishers adopting both PubLink and ATS include:
Travis Clinger, SVP, Activations and Addressability at LiveRamp, said: "Facing a complex macroeconomic climate and big-picture shifts like signal deprecation, publishers must be dynamic and prioritize sustainable, forward-looking strategies. Publishers can leverage authenticated identity to better monetize their inventory, and LiveRamp's partnership with Epsilon connects their authenticated inventory with even more advertiser demand. I'm thrilled to continue our commitment to interoperability by now supporting Epsilon's PubLink with ATS in addition to The Trade Desk's UID 2.0 / EUID and Google Display & Video 360's PAIR via an add-on module."
