MarTech Interview with Amnon Siev, CEO, GeoEdge Sudipto GhoshMay 29, 2019, 4:45 pmMay 29, 2019 Amnon Siev is the CEO at GeoEdge, the premier provider of ad verification and transparency solutions for online and mobile advertising ecosystem. Prior to his current role, Amnon was the VP of Product Management at GeoEdge.Amnon has been part of the Internet and IT industries for more than 16 years working in a variety of leadership roles in Product Development and Management. Amnon’s expertise is in the internet and telecom sector, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to Startups, where he specializes in introducing new solutions to the marketplace.Amnon has a B.Sc. degree in Engineering from Ben Gurion University and an MBA in Finance and Marketing from the NYU Stern School of Business. Tell us about your role and journey into technology. What galvanized you to join GeoEdge? I always found the tech industry very interesting. Growing up in Israel, I watched the Israeli tech companies as they made a huge impact on the Israeli economy and built the start-up nation ecosystem. I knew this is the place I want to be.After completing my MBA at NYU in New York City, I have been developing products and growing Sales of Enterprise technology vendors first at telecommunications and then internet companies.We founded GeoEdge in 2010, and for me it was all about the great team. I was inspired by the fast pace environment and the rapid innovation cycles in this industry.Our goal at GeoEdge is to make the Internet safer for kids and adults all over the world, so they won’t be exposed to inappropriate content or security threats from within the advertising. I am a father of three children myself and on the personal level, I feel that this is a mission that I can relate to.It’s been an amazing journey and we’ve achieved a new high in the beginning of this year with the roll-out of real-time blocking for sexually offensive and malicious ads in the in-app environment. This SDK solution, as recently covered in MarTech Series, provides a new level of continuous protection which is necessary to fight malvertising today and in the future, and it is unique to GeoEdge.How is GeoEdge different from other Adtech platforms?GeoEdge is not an AdTech platform. It is a cyber security company that primarily is working in the AdTech industry. Our start- and end-point is to ensure a good user’s experience when it comes to digital advertising, while ensuring that publishers, app developers, and other supply-side partners maintain their revenue stream by providing their readers with a safe environment.Our prime focus is to protect publishers’ audiences from malicious and bad ads in the programmatic ecosystem. We monitor publisher’s ad inventory 24/7 to detect and block any malicious activity and quality issues in real-time, long before any damage can occur to the site/app user’s experience.With GeoEdge, publishers and app developers can stop choosing between profits and peace of mind – and instead provide their users the clean, safe and engaging experience they expect.Ahead of any other ad verification company, we are the only company that offer a comprehensive solution for detecting and blocking bad ads on web, mobile and inside applications.What sets GeoEdge apart is the fact that we’re all about providing publishers with peace of mind knowing that their users are protected. The fact that we look at user experience from a holistic approach is something that is unique to GeoEdge. Not only do we protect users against malware and malicious threats, but we also protect against threats to the user experience like sexually-offensive ads and other in-appropriate.Our advanced user protection service combines GeoEdge’s established industry leading detection with real-time blocking. We monitor every single impression to identify malicious code in real-time through behavioral and heuristic detection. Each ad campaign is cross-checked using a real-time reputation feed that is continually updated by using aggregate data from publishers.How do you prepare for the highly disruptive Digital Advertising ecosystem? We know that the malicious actors are always looking for the latest vulnerability or opportunity to exploit, so we must be diligent and stay one step ahead of their game.The real challenge in keeping ads served programmatically safe is detection. That’s why GeoEdge’s security research team, using our real-time blocking technology, works to uncover and analyze malicious patterns in order to more effectively block auto-redirects, Malvertising and other bad ads such as sexually-offensive ads.What is the current state of ad transparency and verification in the digital advertising industry? The importance of ad transparency and verification has grown over the last three or four years so that all prospective clients and partners now understand the value we deliver. That said, the challenges that remain include an arms race between malicious actors who are constantly looking for vulnerabilities to exploit and publishers and other supply-side partners who are fighting on more fronts across more channels. Publishers and platforms are fighting more vigorously and we can see the change all the time, they are making more efforts to provide a safe and professional experience for users and advertisers.This is precisely why we rely on real-time blocking, and just became the first ad security company to offer in-app real-time blocking via our SDK offering.Today, the targets for malicious ad attacks are mainly our phones, table and desktops, but in the not-so-distant future, our cars and smart home appliances will also be targeted with malicious ad attacks, and we’ll need to safeguard against that, too.Why should Publishers invest in guarding against ma/ware and inappropriate or non-compliant content or actors? First of all, because these bad and malicious ads have a big impact on their revenue.When a user visits a publisher, they’re expressing a level of trust in the publisher, and each publisher must repay that trust by providing a safe and clean user experience. But when users fall victim to a nefarious attack, whether their data stolen via a phishing ad or they’re exposed to sexually-offensive content, their experience is negatively impacted and their trust in the publisher decreases, resulting in a lower lifetime value and diminished revenue for the publisher.Advertisers also need to feel that their ads will be safe and that the advertising experience is a positive one.Today, with publishers working with more partners in a programmatic way to generate revenue, malvertisers have become more sophisticated with the ever-changing arsenal of tactics they use, creating a perfect storm. To fight this, publishers need a real-time blocking technology which is continuously updated, to ensure of staying a few steps ahead of the malicious actors.How much have business operations changed for publishers in the last few years because of malvertising and inappropriate or non-compliant content or actors? The sophistication employed by malvertisers and other malicious actors has increased significantly in the last few years, requiring publishers to be more proactive and invest in real-time blocking technology.Publishers need to be diligent in their fight against malvertisers or they risk losing revenue as well as the trust of their readers.Which marketing and sales automation tools and technologies do you currently use?At GeoEdge, our Sales and Marketing organization uses various Automation tools including Totango. Salesforce, Pardot, and of course they’re GDPR compliant.What are the core tenets of your business development model? How does GeoEdge add value to digital transformation journeys for businesses? Our business development model is based on a high touch approach. We engage with prospective customers across a broad range of touch points including in person and at events and digitally via email marketing, publications of reports and industry research, public relations and digital marketing.We add value to the digital transformation journey of our publisher and supply-side clients by providing them and their users and advertisers with peace of mind, ensuring that their experience will be safer, and free of malvertising as well as inappropriate, sexually-offensive and non-compliant content. When malicious ads are uncovered, GeoEdge’s technology replaces the offensive ad with a publisher-safe one, guaranteeing a continuous revenue stream for our publishers and supplyside partners (SSPs).How often do you measure the performance of your marketing a sales reporting?We measure the performance of our marketing analytics and sales reporting on a continuous basis because, in marketing, things can change dynamically, and we like to have our fingers on the pulse. A campaign can start strong and then taper off. Our marketing team wants to know how each campaign is performing on a daily and sometimes hourly basis to ensure that they’re delivering relevant and qualified leads to our sales organization.What are your predictions on the most impactful disruptions in marketing operations for 2018-2020? I believe messaging apps like Facebook-owned WhatsApp will disrupt marketing operations for both B2B and B2C marketers. With this development, there will be new kinds of malware and malicious codes to fight.What startups in the technology industry are you watching keenly right now? I have a pretty long drive to the office, so I’m personally interested in some of the autonomous driving technology companies like Mobileye, which will make my commute to the office much more productive.In digital marketing, I’m interested in seeing where the growth in voice/audio takes us. Will search migrate to audio? Will we read less and listen more? And what kinds of malware and malicious attacks will occur via digital audio that GeoEdge will need to contend with? And of course, autonomous vehicles, and smart home appliances will also provide new opportunities for ad-based malware.Could you tell us about an outstanding digital campaign? I really like SodaStream’s “Fight Plastic” campaign against single-use plastic bottles. This was a pretty aggressive campaign for a company that was recently acquired by PepsiCo (which sells a lot of beverages in single-use plastic) while mocking Pepsi rival Coca Cola’s classic 1970s hilltop commercial.Today, it takes a lot of intelligence and creativity to stand out above the noise, and SodaStream delivered.How do you inspire your people to work with technology? I find that my team is already inspired by working with technology. Often I hear about new apps or other technology solutions from my team. This also one of my guidelines when hiring new employees – I want them to be always curious and tech savvy. It is a key component in driving the company’s innovative abilities. This is indeed an exciting time to be working with so many amazing technologies.One word that best describes how you work.Passionate.It’s important for me to be excited and enthusiastic about what I do, so I’m passionate about GeoEdge and what we’re accomplishing. And when I recruit, I look for people who will bring their personal passions to the office.What apps/software/ltools can’t you live without? Waze, Skype, WhatsAppWhat’s your smartest work-related shortcut or productivity hack?Having a conversation. I have solved countless issues which escalated via email and messaging apps by sitting down and having a conversation.What are you currently reading? Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah HarariWhat’s the best advice you’ve ever received? To listen more than I talk. This is even more relevant for CEOs.Something you do better than others- the secret of your success?The secret to my success is making sure to spend some time every day with family and friends. It grounds me while also enabling me to re-focus when I get back to work.Tag the one person (or more) in the industry whose answers to these questions you would love to read: Demis Hassabis, a game developer who created AlphaGo, Al software which defeated the world’s best human player of the Chinese game Go.Thank you, Amnon! That was fun and hope to see you back on MarTech Series soon.

Mhow: Amid hectic campaigning Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath paid a visit to Bhimrao Ambedkar’s birthplace in Mhow and chanted ‘Jai Bhim’ slogans. The BJP also observed Ambedkar’s birth anniversary at all district headquarters. In Mhow, a cantonment town close to about 25km from Indore, Ambedkar Jayanti was celebrated in a grand style. Nath reached here with five of his cabinet ministers — Jitu Patwari, Tulsi Silawat, Bala Bachchan, Sachin Yadav and Sajjan Singh Verma — and paid tribute at the Ambedkar memorial. While Home Minister Bala Bachchan promised to safeguard the Constitution framed by Ambedkar, PWD Minister Sajjan Singh Verma said the memorial would soon be accorded national status.Mhow MLA and BJP’s state vice-president Usha Thakur also paid tribute at the memorial. BJP’s SC (scheduled caste) cell head in the state Suraj Kairo who, too, paid tribute to Ambedkar in Mhow, claimed his was the only party that followed the social reformer’s principles.Earlier in the day, Ambedkar’s grandson Yashwantrao Ambedkar said the Dalit icon’s views had a worldwide appeal and hence, propagated beyond national boundaries.He said as Ambedkar was present in the hearts of crores of people, no political party could distance itself from his ideologies.BJP’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan paid his tribute at a party event organised in the MP Nagar area of Bhopal.In Jabalpur, party’s state president Rakesh Singh accused the Congress of persistently trying to destroy the Constitution formulated by Ambedkar. “He wanted Section 370 to be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir temporarily, but the Congress, in its manifesto, has announced that it would not scrap this section,” said Singh, adding the grand old party only wanted to do away with the sedition law.Earlier in the day, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) volunteers, accompanied by a musical band, commemorated the Dalit icon’s birth anniversary at his statue in MP Nagar. “Babasaheb believed in Indian culture and was of the view that independence had no value without the sense of brotherhood and equality,” said RSS functionary Rajesh Sethi. Draped in a blue stole (the colour is symbolic of Dalit resistance) around his head, Nath said, “Ambedkar was a historical figure who offered a new direction to society.” Nath and his colleagues also sat for a ‘samrasta bhoj’ (harmony meal). ambedkar jayantibabasaheb ambedkarBJPBR Ambedkar First Published: April 14, 2019, 8:08 PM IST | Edited by: Sohini Goswami
Chennai: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Wednesday accused the income tax department of taking “autocratic and partial” action in Tamil Nadu in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections.A day after income tax sleuths along with poll flying squad carried out raids at the residence of DMK leader Kanimozhi at Tuticorin, Chidambaram in a series of tweets said, “the news,” is that nothing was found during searches in her residence. “How is it that tip off on opposition leaders alone is received (by officials),” he wondered in his tweet in Tamil. He also said, “The marker of the 2019 Parliamentary elections in Tamil Nadu is the income Tax department’s autocratic and partial steps.”Election officials had Tuesday held searches at the residence of DMK leader Kanimozhi in Tuticorin in south Tamil Nadu from where she is contesting. Authorities conducted a search at a store in Theni Lok Sabha constituency Tuesday night following inputs about suspected cash, during which police had to open fire in the air to disperse supporters of the TTV Dhinakaran-led AMMK, who objected to the action.During the raids, cash to the tune of Rs 1.48 crore allegedly stashed to bribe voters was seized.

Actress Samantha Akkineni says there was a time when getting trolled on social media started hurting her mental stability and making her rush to wrong decisions. Now she knows what to expect from trolls and does not take it to her heart. In a live interview by Rajeev Masand on Twitter, Samantha, who is married to actor Naga Chaitanya, opened up about her decision to shut down media speculation on her pregnancy recently. “It surely did affect me initially, to the extent that I was questioning my sanity. I would wake up and the first thing I would do was check for trolls,” Samantha said. “It was really hurting my mental stability and making me rush to wrong decisions. So I don’t think I have much advice or an explanation for how I really got out of such a situation. Because it just happened over time. I think now I am at a point where it’s all for fun, where I was just listening along. Now, I understand that there’s going to be trolls even before I post a tweet or upload a picture. I now know what to expect from trolls,” she added. How has life changed for her ever since marriage? “I’m suddenly carrying this mantle of ‘career post marriage’ but I don’t know how much of credit I can actually take for it. There were films like ‘Rangasthalam’ and others that I was doing before marriage and happened to become phenomenal hits,” said the actress. “So, I can’t really take any credit for this success to have come post marriage. I believe I am not getting as many films as I did before marriage. But I think that’s more because they really don’t know what to do with me. I think its more ‘I don’t know what to do with her’.”She has done about 45 films in less than 10 years. In an interview in 2015, she said that she wanted to quit films. Looking back at her career, she said: “When my first film released in 2010, it became a smash hit. I didn’t have time to adjust to the new world. I come from a very humble background; it was then when I had travelled abroad for the first time. It was all very new.” “I was drowning in a big industry that had all its clicks and this idea of beauty, which spelt how a heroine should look or how she should behave. There were already these set rules and I was just struggling to fit in. I was far from being comfortable being myself. It was all about fitting in. And I was not doing a good job at being able to handle the pressure,” recalled Samantha.”After so many years, it feels so nice to wake up in the morning and actually be able to count the positives and blessings that you have instead of going and looking at the negatives,” she added.In the interview with Masand, she also recalled why she had doubts about her stay in the industry. She said, “I was tired of being somebody who I was not. It took so long for me to let go of what I cannot be and actually get better at what I can be.”On being asked how she deals with insecurities in regard to her competition, Samantha said: “I’m all about my peers right now and about the women in the industry, like guns blazing in support of well written female characters. In fact, I will be glad to be in support of another heroine, I have no such insecurities.”Follow @News18Movies for more Oh Baby Samantha AkkineniSamantha AkkineniSamantha Akkineni and Naga ChaitanyaSamantha Akkineni Films First Published: June 21, 2019, 8:38 AM IST
Bahujan samaj partyNarendra Modiop rajbharsamajwadi party First Published: May 20, 2019, 10:51 AM IST Welcoming the decision, Rajbhar said he would continue fighting for his rights. Deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, while reacting to the development, said: “Rajbhar is not the leader of backwards but leader of his family. He became MLA because of BJP and was even made minister but all he did was drama in the name of development. The entire backward class was, is and will always be with Modi-ji.”The SBSP chief, who has been playing spoiler to the BJP’s plans in Uttar Pradesh, had declared support for the Congress candidate in Mirzapur and SP-BSP-RLD alliance candidates in Maharajganj and Bansgaon.He had also dismissed the possibility of Narendra Modi being re-elected as the Prime Minister and said India’s next PM will be “Dalit ki beti” (daughter of the Dalits). Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday sacked estranged BJP ally OP Rajbhar from the cabinet, a day after the Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) chief predicted a massive victory for the SP-BSP alliance in eastern Uttar Pradesh.Announcing the news, a tweet from Adityanath’s handle said the UP chief minister had requested the Governor to dismiss Rajbhar, the minister for backward class welfare and ‘divyangjan’ empowerment. आज #UPCM @myogiadityanath जी ने महामहिम श्री राज्यपाल को पिछड़ा वर्ग कल्याण और दिव्यांग जन कल्याण मंत्री ओमप्रकाश राजभर को मंत्रिमंडल से तत्काल प्रभाव से बर्खास्त करने की सिफारिश की।— CM Office, GoUP (@CMOfficeUP) 20 May 2019 Rajbhar had earlier resigned from the cabinet, miffed over denial of seats of his choice in the state, but it was not accepted. He fielded 39 candidates for seats in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the Lok Sabha polls that concluded on Sunday.
Veteran actor Dharmendra is the latest to troll his wife, actor and MP Hema Malini over her laughable attempt at trying to use the broom to clean the Parliament complex as part of a drive.Joining the bandwagon, Dhramendra tweeted on Sunday that his wife had so far picked a broom only in films and her feeble attempt at cleaning looked clumsy to him too. He wrote this in response to a question by a fan who asked him whether Hema had ever picked up a broom in real life. “Haan films main , mujhe bhi अनाड़ी लग रहीं थीं . मैं ने मगर बचपन में , अपनी माँ का हमेशा हाथ बटाया है । मैं झाड़ू में माहिर था । I love cleanliness.”Haan films main , mujhe bhi अनाड़ी लग रहीं थीं . मैं ने मगर बचपन में , अपनी माँ का हमेशा हाथ बटाया है । मैं झाड़ू में माहिर था । I love cleanliness — Dharmendra Deol (@aapkadharam) July 14, 2019 DharmendraDharmendra twitterhema maliniHema Malini broom First Published: July 16, 2019, 5:08 PM IST His followers could not help but laugh at the hilarity of his response.The user had commented on one of Dharmendra’s videos, in which he is showing off a newly-born calf in his farm. However, the Yamla Pagla Deewana star said that people must nevertheless try to imbibe the noble message of cleanliness that Hema has tried to propagate. “Ek paigam toh hai. Keep your Country Clean. Hema ke paigan par amal karo. My humble request to you all, feel from your soul for our New India,” he tweeted.The video of Hema half-heartedly trying to broom the roads of the Parliament complex (which happens to be one of the cleanest places in the country, as rightly pointed by former J&K CM Omar Abdullah), have gone viral ever since a news agency recently shared them, with netizens taking interesting digs at the MP and doling out incredible memes.Hema Malini is a legend, after purifying water all these years, now she is cleaning air. pic.twitter.com/dSzSS1iFaw— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) July 13, 2019But the Parliament complex is one of the cleanest places in the country, especially when the sessions are on, so what were they sweeping ? https://t.co/T4EHkzt2zz— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) July 13, 2019Follow @News18Movies for more.
The much-anticipated film Aadai featuring Amala Paul has not yet hit the screens as the first and noon shows have been cancelled due to financial issues. The publicity team of the film is hoping for the proper theatrical release later in the day. As per reports, the film hasn’t hit the theatres due to the non-receipt of the KDM. A source close to the film said that the Aadai team is trying to resolve the issue. Aadai, directed by Rathna Kumar, created a buzz after its first teaser was released. The makers have promoted the film as one of the bravest roles done by the lead Amala so far in her career. Those who booked tickets for the first show and the noon show have been offered an alternate show or refund. Fans certainly are disappointed as the wait to watch the film gets longer. Amala too was waiting for the release as she, in many interviews, said this film is the right platform for a comeback for her and that she rediscovered herself during the shooting. The teaser certainly created ripples with Amala Paul’s bold nude scene in the teaser.Follow @News18Movies for more AadaiAmala PaulRathna KumarShows Cancelled First Published: July 19, 2019, 2:33 PM IST

Chennai: An AIADMK MLA supporting rival leader T T V Dhinakaran Tuesday returned to the K Palaniswami-led ruling camp, giving a shot in the arm for the Chief Minister post the April 18 Lok Sabha polls. Another key aide of the AMMK leader also announced returning to the ruling party fold.AIADMK MLA E Rathinasabapathy, one of the three pro-Dhinakaran AIADMK MLAs who were served with notices by Speaker P Dhanapal in April for alleged anti-party activities, met Palaniswami here and later said the two other MLAs would also join him soon in returning to the ruling camp. Dhinakaran earlier suffered high-profile dessertion post the party’s drubbing in the parliamentary elections, with former aide and ex-MLA Thangatamizhselvan jumping ship to join the DMK last week.Another confidante, V Senthil Balaji, had quit AMMK earlier to join the DMK. Scores of other lower level party workers have also been leaving AMMK to join AIADMK or DMK.Another key Dhinakaran aide and former Minister Esakki Subbiah also announced he was quitting AMMK to return to the “mother organisation”, i.e AIADMK.On Tuesday, Rathinasabapathy called on Palaniswami and vowed to work for AIADMK in full swing like he had done earlier.He said he had gone “wayward”, alluding to siding with Dhinakaran, but said that party has now been “ignored” by people.”This is the true AIADMK. People have recognised this as it has the party’s symbol (Two Leaves) and that this is Amma’s true AIADMK,” he said.”I always wanted this party to remain united as I have been a long time worker. I want to succeed again and live up to the dreams of Amma (the late J Jayalalithaa). So all from that camp (AMMK) should come here,” he told reporters.Asked about deposed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala, now serving a jail term in Bengaluru for a graft case, he only said “all should remain united.”On the notice issued to him and the two others, A Prabhu and V T Kalaiselvan, he recalled that they had earlier moved the Supreme Court and obtained a stay against it.He hinted that things would fall in place since he had returned to the AIADMK, saying “we will give an explanation” to the notice.Asked about the stand of the other two MLAs, he said they also would return to the ruling party fold.Meanwhile, Subbiah told reporters in Tenkasi in Tirunelveli district that following the advice of his supporters and friends, he had decided to return to AIADMK.”Our supporters and friends said we should go back to our mother organisataion.

Our propensity to take a photo of anything and everything is really only limited by the amount of storage space we have on our phones. Even with automatic cloud backups, there will still be some photos we’d want to always have at hand, ready to show off to anyone willing to listen.And then there are the photos that we take more for documentation or reference. Photos of documents, receipts, whiteboards, and the like fall under this category. Depending on their purpose or date, you might not need to look at them again until a much later date.Using a pinch of computer vision and machine learning, Google Photos’ Assistant integration can identify these types of photos for you and suggest that you archive them. Once archived, you can reach them again later in the dedicated Archive section of the app.Of course, you don’t have to take Assistant’s word for it. You can completely ignore the suggestion or pick out those that you do think deserve to have a vacation in the Archives. It’s definitely a useful feature when you have a few dozen such documents buried under hundreds of vacation and family photos.SOURCE: +Google Photos While people love taking photos with their smartphones, not everything we capture would probably fit in what many would consider “photographs”. Thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones, it has never been easier to capture anything and everything, which means you eventually accumulate cruft in your photo albums. Thankfully, Google Photos, with some intelligent help from Google Assistant, can now suggests which of your photos you may want to archive and which ones to keep on your phone for quick access.
