Cyveillance provides both ValueClick Media and Commission Junction with real-time content monitoring to deliver early warning of potential violations of the networks' publisher terms and conditions. In addition to monitoring thousands of URLs within both networks for objectionable content, Cyveillance monitors millions of domains across the Internet for instances of ad tags appearing on unapproved sites. Furthermore, the monitoring and collecting of data is fully automated, enabling ValueClick Media and Commission Junction to increase their proactive approach in protecting advertisers.


"Cyveillance is a strong complement to our internal network monitoring systems, providing another layer of security and giving advertisers further assurance of our commitment to protect their brands online," said Tom Vadnais, chief executive officer of ValueClick, Inc.
