San Mateo, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

Drawbridge, the leading cross-device technology company, announced that Nielsen has analyzed a portion of the company’s probabilistic Connected Consumer Graph™ against a third-party sample of known user login data. The Drawbridge-commissioned analysis, conducted over a one-month period, found that the Drawbridge model was 97.3% accurate in indicating a relationship between two or more devices. The company also announced the availability of its cross-device reach of more than one billion consumers across three and a half billion devices to third-parties for the first time outside of its own Cross-Device Platform, including publishers, marketers, site personalization businesses, and attribution measurement solutions among others. This democratizes digital identity and cross-device capabilities at comparable scale and accuracy to closed social platforms and web portals. This reach is up to four times larger than other cross-device technology providers, without the limitations of user logins or other personal data.
Per this recent test, which had a 10.3% match rate with the third-party sample data used by Nielsen for the analysis, it was determined that Drawbridge connects devices to consumers 97.3% of the time.
“When validating the accuracy of probabilistic solutions, it’s important to consider the match-rate of the solution’s sample compared to that of the third-party ‘truth set’ sample,” said Andrew Feigenson, Managing Director, Digital, Nielsen. “Tests of this nature provide marketers another means to evaluate consumers’ continuously-evolving behaviors across devices.”
Drawbridge’s Connected Consumer Graph is a people-centric, probabilistic identity solution that provides marketers with visibility into how consumers interact with brands across devices along the path to purchase, without using sensitive information such as a name, phone number, email address, or login handle. The Drawbridge Connected Consumer Graph includes over 225 million consumers in the United States, enabling marketers to reach an estimated 80% of US consumers. In addition to the reach in the US, over 40 million consumers in the UK, 38 million consumers in France, 50 million consumers in Germany, and a significant number of consumers in Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region are represented in the graph.
“Savvy marketers desire to understand their consumers’ behavior and paths to purchase, especially in the context of multi-device touchpoints,” said Drawbridge CEO Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan. “But today there are a limited number of social networks and search platforms that offer cross-device reach at scale, and those are all closed, walled-garden environments. We’ve put significant effort into completely rebuilding our technology to focus on consumers, not just devices. We are pleased with the results of Nielsen’s third-party analysis of our graph’s accuracy. We are solving a customer experience problem by democratizing accurate cross-device identity at scale for the first time.”
Armed with accurate cross-device information at scale, marketers can gain greater insights into their customers and learn how to best engage with them in order to drive better results.
Drawbridge provided Nielsen a portion of its Connected Consumer Graph, including predicted mobile device identifiers linked to web browser identifiers. Over a one-month period, Nielsen evaluated these predictions against a third-party “truth set” that links mobile to browser via email address logins. Nielsen’s analysis compared Drawbridge’s prediction with the third-party panel and found that Drawbridge’s Connected Consumer Graph correctly indicated a relationship between two or more devices 97.3% of the time.
