PubMatic’s Identity Hub offers ID management solution in face of growing privacy regulations

The ad tech company’s latest release is an ID-agnostic identity management solution for publishers that sits on top of Pubmatic’s Prebid User ID module.

PubMatic has released a new Identity Hub as part of its Prebid User ID module. The enterprise identity management solution gives publishers the ability to manage multiple IDs for each ad impression, ensuring advertisers can recognize and bid on their intended audiences.

The newly launched Identity Hub directly integrates with existing partners of PubMatic’s Prebid User ID module, including IAB DigiTrust, The Trade Desk Unified ID, ID5, LiveIntent and five other major ID solutions. The integration also offers built-in analytic capabilities to measure the incremental value of each partner ID platform.

Why we care

As third-party cookies are becoming a thing of the past in the face of privacy regulations like GDPR, and now CCPA, publishers must find new ways to connect advertisers with their targeted audiences.

“By extending open-source code from Prebid, PubMatic’s Identity Hub addresses this challenge by simplifying the use of multiple IDs in an intuitive, easy-to-manage solution,” said PubMatic Director of Product Management Ankur Srivastava.

PubMatic’s Identity Hub aims to increase publisher monetization capabilities by giving advertisers the ability to recognize and bid on their desired audiences when implementing programmatic ad campaigns.
