STERLING, VA, – September 4, 2014 – Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services and analytics, today announced a partnership with Comscore, Inc.

The partnership builds on Neustar PlatformOne’s already robust capabilities and comprehensive partner ecosystem and enhances its ability to provide marketers with the visibility needed to measure and optimize digital campaigns.
The integration of Comscore vCE’s MRC accredited metrics into PlatformOne™ will allow Neustar customers to more accurately measure ad viewability and the duration of ad engagement.
