Leading Global Security IT Vendor Taps IQ Intelligence Suite to Measure Cross Channel Performance

Needham, MA – April 15, 2013 - Cross channel marketing attribution software provider Visual IQ today announced that Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of security and threat management solutions, has selected it as their marketing attribution management provider. Kaspersky Lab will use the company’s IQ Intelligence Suite to measure cross channel marketing performance and optimize marketing spend across its online channels.

Visual IQ’s robust attribution management solution determines how much fractional credit should be given to each marketing touchpoint that contributes to a conversion. By implementing the IQ Intelligence Suite, Kaspersky Lab will be able to allocate media dollars more efficiently across all their paid and earned digital channels, including online display, email, paid and organic search, affiliate marketing, social and more. Through its actionable recommendations, the platform will ultimately help Kaspersky Lab drive incremental conversions and revenue.

“Understanding the impact each marketing initiative has on others is critical to our success,” said Tom Hubbard, Director of Digital Marketing, Kaspersky Lab. “As we continue to grow and diversify our global marketing portfolio, we needed an attribution solution to ensure we are investing effectively and efficiently across channels. Visual IQ was the clear choice because of the sophistication of its solution, its global experience and its best-in-class optimization algorithm.”

Kaspersky Lab will utilize both the IQ Envoy and IQ Sage product modules to manage marketing data and incorporate attribution recommendations into their online media buying and planning efforts. The company, which operates in close to 200 countries and territories across the globe, will first utilize the IQ Intelligence Suite in the United States offices and then expand globally.

“For large enterprises like Kaspersky Lab that are managing different marketing efforts out of multiple countries, the IQ Intelligence Suite makes it easy to unify cross channel, disparate data,” said Manu Mathew, CEO and co-founder of Visual IQ. “We pride ourselves on helping organizations maximize their marketing spend, and we’re thrilled Kaspersky Lab has recognized the value of our products.”
