ZEDO Selected for OTA Honor Roll for 4th Year

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

ZEDO, INC., the leading independent advertising technology partner for publishers, has announced it has been selected for the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) 2015 Online Trust Honor Roll for the fourth year in a row. This honor demonstrates exceptional commitment to data protection, privacy and security in an effort to better protect customers and brands from the increased threats of cybercriminals and abusive privacy practices.

OTA, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works collaboratively with industry leaders to enhance online trust, completed comprehensive audits analyzing more than 1,000 domains and privacy policies, including approximately 100,000 web pages and more than 500 million emails for this report. The composite analysis included over two-dozen attributes focusing on 1) site & server security, 2) domain, brand, email and consumer protection and 3) privacy policy and practices. In addition to the in-depth analysis of their web sites, Domain Name Systems (DNS), outbound emails, and public records were analyzed for recent data breach incidents and FTC settlements. Key sectors audited include the Internet Retailer Top 500, FDIC 100, Top 50 Social Sites, IoT Top 50 as well as OTA members.

We are proud to once again recognize ZEDO for its leadership and commitment to working with peers, the industry and competitors to embrace consumer protection and embrace their right to privacy, said Craig Spiezle. ZEDO plays an incredible important role in the advertising supply chain helping increase the integrity of online advertising.

ZEDO strives to make security and privacy of its customers data a top priority. stated Roy De Souza, ZEDO CEO. We fully support the OTAs Data Breach Guidelines, and we also adhere to industry guidelines for data protection.

Nearly 1,000 companies comprise the Honor Roll, including ZEDO. The report indicates that company size and/or sales are not true measures of the level of security and privacy a company implements. All companies are equally evaluated by the same criteria regardless of size. We have seen large e-retailers with significant sales fail to make the Honor Roll; conversely we have seen small to mid-size companies taking top grades, said Spiezle.

Started in 2005 as an effort to drive adoption of best practices, the objectives of the Honor Roll are to 1) recognize leadership and commitment to best practices which aid in the protection of online trust and confidence in online services, 2) Enable businesses to enhance their security, data protection and privacy practices, 3) Move from compliance to stewardship, demonstrating support of meaningful self-regulation, and 4) Promote security & privacy as part of a companys brand promise and value proposition.

Being named to the 2015 Honor Roll is a significant effort considering only 30 percent of the 1,000 web sites evaluated made the Honor Roll, distinguishing themselves by safeguarding data via best practices in three categories: domain/brand protection, privacy and security. Conversely, a nearly 70 percent didnt qualify for the Honor Roll .

We are honored to be recognized for the measures we take around security and responsibility for our customers, said De Souza. We feel an enormous responsibility to provide protection and security for our customers.

ABOUT The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) is a member-based, non-profit representing the global internet ecosystem – including the public and private sectors. OTAs mission is to develop and advocate best practices and public policy which mitigate emerging privacy and security threats while enhancing online trust, innovation and the vitality of the digital economy.
