Sitescout makes real time bidding available to developers and entrepreneurs. Seculert releases V2.0 with new features. Plus: Heroku Platform API OAuth in Public Beta.

Sitescout Makes Good Impression on Advertisers and Publishers

Sitescout provides a variety of tools inside three components of campaign management, reporting, and audience management tools to advertisers. Now, its real time bidding is being made widely available through its RESTful API.

CEO Paul Mokbel notes that the API was launched to give advertisers the tools to create RTB-powered products:

"SiteScout has always been about empowering marketers, agencies and advertisers, with an accessible programmatic ad buying platform. Our customers were asking us if they could build apps on top of our RTB platform, such as niche-specific DSPs targeting specific market segments. In launching the API, we're creating a richer marketing ecosystem and democratizing RTB infrastructure by making it available to developers and businesses of all sizes around the world."

From container ads to impression recycling, from advault to automatic revenue tracking, Sitescout has a platform to manage your campaigns. More information on the API is available from Sitescout's API page and further documentation. Using predictable URIs, responses are JSON with CSV as an option.

Seculert V2.0 Elastic Sandbox and Other New Features

SeculertJust days ago our own Eric Carter covered the release of Seculert's API, that provides malware data to devices and security apps. Now Seculert has announced a major new version release with 2.0.

As Seculert's CTO Aviv Raff pointed out in the press release, one new feature has particular significance, the "elastic sandbox" (which isn't the kind every 4 year old dreams of having...):

"Our Elastic Sandbox is a natural progression for our cloud-based SaaS solution; continuing our dedication to research, intelligence and protection from malware and advanced threats. It is the only truly 'elastic' sandbox available that allows malware to evolve over long periods of time, and not just run for a couple of minutes."

Now out of beta, the sandbox is part of Seculert's advanced threat protection solution that detects previously unidentified malware.
