  • Pixalate, a global ad fraud protection, privacy, and compliance analytics platform, announced the opening of its new Singapore office to expand its local presence and partnerships in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

    Alvin Ling, a Singapore native with 20+ years of deep technical expertise pioneering digital advertising innovations in the region, will lead Pixalate’s APAC team as Vice President of Sales and Operations.

    “Advertising fraud is a global concern, posing an ever-evolving threat that continues to grow in size, scale, and sophistication,” said Jalal Nasir, CEO of Pixalate. “We are thrilled to launch our 3-D anti-fraud technology and operations in APAC to ensure the safety and security of our partners.”

    To serve the regional market, Pixalate provides an MRC-accredited Analytics platform with ad fraud protection tools and local client support – including APIs for developers. Many APAC countries have intensified their efforts to combat sophisticated ad fraud, as both ad spending and IVT (invalid traffic, including ad fraud) have increased in the region.

    Pixalate’s latest ad research shows:

    • At 30%, the Q1 2024 mobile app IVT rate for APAC is the highest in any global  region.
    • APAC open programmatic CTV ad spend increased 43% year-over-year in Q1 2024, and the corresponding IVT rate reached 29% for the same time period. 

    Pixalate partners include several of the biggest global brands based in the APAC region, including Pangle, the ad network of TikTok for Business owned by Bytedance. Pangle recently announced that it had upgraded its mobile ad platform with Pixalate’s Third-Party Content Risk Assessment to, “deliver unparalleled brand safety and media transparency for global advertisers.”

    “I am honoured to lead the growth of Pixalate’s APAC team and partnerships at a crucial inflection point for the region,” said Ling. “Our unparalleled technology tools and exceptional team are uniquely positioned to serve the market’s needs at a time when the industry’s heightened emphasis on a more white-boxed global fraud protection solution and supply path object verification has spurred strong demand for greater transparency and improved traffic quality.”
