Before there was Boltive, there was Ad Lightning which served as the name of our company since it was founded in 2016. Ad Lightning continues to be the name of our flagship product—the most comprehensive ad quality software available.
As we grew in new areas like privacy, our company name changed to Boltive. Our name has changed but our service has not. Clients can expect the same level of exceptional service that earns us a Net Promoter Score (NPS) consistently in the top 1% of software companies.
The root word bolt carries two meanings: tight security and lightning intensity. We securely and intensely safeguard the internet from malware, offensive content, heavy ads and privacy violations. Boltive reflects our values of trust, accountability, and world class service.
Making sure consumers don’t see your ads is just as important as making sure they do. In a new privacy-oriented world, data sharing can create liability more often than data theft does. As new privacy regulations continue to emerge, and as new audience targeting solutions continue to roll out, brands are facing a sea change.
Boltive is your secret shopper for privacy violations and audience solution effectiveness. We simulate your users’ journeys on the web, capturing and aggregating real ads being served in real time, to deliver the key insights you need to keep your consumer data—and your brand reputation—safe.
With hundreds of competitors now in the market, trust and transparency have become competitive differentiators for leading AdTech platforms—and it’s never been more important.
Studies show that 28% of all ads on the internet are bad. Boltive gives Platforms customizable solutions to ensure these bad ads don't impact your customers, while insuring the revenue and delivery aren't impacted. From pre-flight checks to real-time analytics, set yourself apart from the competition by setting a new standard for accountability and protection for the industry.
Publishers understand the importance of delighting consumers and earning their trust. You invest significant effort in your user experience, delivering fast page loads and an easy-to-use consumer privacy program. But in the Wild West of digital advertising, it’s easy for things to go wrong.
Bad actors inject malware that drags down your page performance, hurting revenue and harming your consumers. Shady partners siphon your data. Boltive gives you the tools you need to monitor ads in real time, block bad actors, and audit for privacy compliance and data leakage among your partners, putting control back in your hands.
