Scout24 Media makes advertising business even more secure

Scout24 Media, the digital marketer of Scout24 AG, has introduced a risk management system for digital suppliers with the American provider The Media Trust in order to make the advertising business with third parties on their online marketplaces even more secure and to further optimise the high security and data protection standards of the Scout24 Group. 

Munich, 11. September 2018 –

"Thanks to our collaboration with The Media Trust's risk management platform, we have a complete insight into the third-party code that runs through our platforms," says Vaughan Belhamine, Vice President Product, Scout24 Media. "The platform allows us to be at the forefront of the basic data protection regulation and to take a proactive role to ensure that we only work with providers who comply with the GDPR rules".

"Online marketplace operators with ambitious growth targets such as Scout24 are focused on winning customers and securing their digital assets," says The Media Trust CEO and founder Chris Olson. "A single platform that enables them to prevent web-based malware, demonstrate compliance with a growing number of consumer privacy laws, and evaluate the quality of ads will help them effectively manage their digital risks.”

Scout24 Media, through The Media Trust, has introduced continuous, customer-side scanning of its ad tags on four digital marketplaces: AutoScout24, FinanceScout24, ImmobilienScout24 and TruckScout24. As soon as violations or suspicious activities occur, the Scout24 team receives a notification and works with The Media Trust to resolve problems with third parties. Scout24 Media is thus continuously improving GDPR compliance on its online platforms.s
