Gabriel Dewitt presenting

Publishers and ad tech vendors can restrict how ad creative behaves via sandboxing or SafeFrames, an IAB-developed form of sandboxing that sets rules for an ad’s behaviour.

Sandboxing “puts ads inside a protective container so they can’t misbehave on a publisher page,” explained Gabriel DeWitt, VP of product and tech ops at Index Exchange.

The technology operates on a continuum. Depending on how the code is written, sandboxing can restrict an ad’s behaviour a lot or just a little.
