Impermium and ImageVision Partner to Protect Businesses Against Dangerous and Explicit User-Generated Content

Impermium, the leading defender against account hacking, account compromise, and malicious user-generated content for web sites, and ImageVision, the pioneer in automated content safety for images and videos, today announce a strategic partnership to protect businesses from dangerous and explicit user-generated content. This partnership provides a comprehensive solution for businesses experiencing online abuse by leveraging Impermium’s expertise in identifying malicious user behavior and ImageVision’s expertise in images and video.

“The past several years have brought an explosion of photo and video sharing online. Unfortunately, they’ve also brought a rise in illicit image and video-based user-generated content,” says Steven W. White, CEO of ImageVision. Brands marketing themselves online face an increasingly visual audience they must engage with via social media and smartphones. ImageVision brings a leap forward in moderation technology by filtering illicit user generated photos and videos in real time. “ImageVision is the perfect complement to Impermium’s behavioral social spam engine because of our deep, real-time analysis of image content,” says White.

“Impermium is now able to provide businesses with complete online protection. Our proven technology is extremely effective at stopping abusive and malicious user behavior, and we are thrilled to bring on a partner with specific expertise in illicit visual content,” says Mark Risher, CEO of Impermium. “When accounts are hacked, or fake accounts are created, criminals use them to publish a wide variety of dangerous and malicious content. Our combined offering enables Impermium to ensure that all bases are covered for our customers.”

With incidents of malicious content and online abuse rapidly increasing across the Internet, this strategic partnership benefits both businesses and their customers by providing the preeminent defense against offensive content. Outbreaks can have a lasting impact on user engagement, SEO and page rank, brand reputation, and ad revenue; with its joint solution, Impermium and ImageVision provide reliable defense against these fast-growing problems.
