REDWOOD CITY, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Impermium, the leading
defender against account hacking, account compromise, and malicious
user-generated content for web sites, and ImageVision, the pioneer
in automated content safety for images and videos, today announce a
strategic partnership to protect businesses from dangerous and explicit
user-generated content. This partnership provides a comprehensive
solution for businesses experiencing online abuse by leveraging
Impermium's expertise in identifying malicious user behavior and
ImageVision's expertise in images and video.
"The past several years have brought an explosion of photo and video
sharing online. Unfortunately, they've also brought a rise in illicit
image and video-based user-generated content," says Steven W. White, CEO
of ImageVision. Brands marketing themselves online face an increasingly
visual audience they must engage with via social media and smartphones.
ImageVision brings a leap forward in moderation technology by filtering
illicit user generated photos and videos in�real time. "ImageVision is
the perfect complement to Impermium's behavioral social spam engine
because of our deep, rel-time analysis of image content," says White.
"Impermium is now able to provide businesses with complete online
protection. Our proven technology is extremely effective at stopping
abusive and malicious user behavior, and we are thrilled to bring on a
partner with specific expertise in illicit visual content," says Mark
Risher, CEO of Impermium. "When accounts are hacked, or fake accounts
are created, criminals use them to publish a wide variety of dangerous
and malicious content. Our combined offering enables Impermium to ensure
that all bases are covered for our customers."
With incidents of malicious content and online abuse rapidly increasing
across the Internet, this strategic partnership benefits both businesses
and their customers by providing the preeminent defense against
offensive content. Outbreaks can have a lasting impact on user
engagement, SEO and page rank, brand reputation, and ad revenue; with
its joint solution, Impermium and ImageVision provide reliable defense
against these fast-growing problems.
