Written by Lisa Chaikin on . Posted in Achievements

PMA logoGrosvenor House Hotel once again played host to the 8th annual Performance Marketing Awards. This year more than 300 entries were submitted with a final 25 awards presented to a room of over 900 performance marketers by Comedian and Actor, Hal Cruttenden.

An evening of great food, plentiful drink, obvious catch ups and the natural competitiveness sets the tone for an evening of fun, friends and nail biting. Thankfully Affiliate Window took the Award for Network Innovation for MyAW; (the Google Chrome extension tool for publishers) and the public voted for Industry Choice of Network Partner (seven times winner in total).

Every single partner of the network, from publisher to advertiser; staff member to agency should feel proud of their part in this achievement and we thoroughly enjoyed celebrating as much with all of you,” says Adam Ross, Chief Operating Officer of Affiliate Window

In addition, BT and AWin received Highly Commended for Best Managed Affiliate Programme and The Technology and Telecoms Award. EE in conjunction with AWin and MEC also scooped a High Commendation for Best New Entrant.

The full list of winners can be found in the Book of the Night.

Congratulations to every participant for another successful year.

Affiliate Window Launches New Website

The Affiliate Window website has undergone several transformations since the company’s launch in 2000.

For this latest iteration, we have gathered as much feedback from our clients and partners as possible, and incorporated some interactive elements allowing users to quickly and easily identify the information that interests them the most.

The site uses response design to ensure it can be viewed on all operating systems, browsers and devices and is optimised for mobile and high definition tablets.

We wanted to create a seamless user journey with single click accessibility to our interface for existing clients, as well as providing a clear and concise means of relaying all necessary information for new publishers and advertisers looking to enter the performance channel.

We hope visitors find the content simple, attractive and digestible. Please view our website by clicking here. As always, we welcome your feedback so please get in touch and let us know your thoughts.

Heartbleed Update

Written by Lisa Chaikin on . Posted in Network News

As you may know, there was recently a discovery of a very serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, which is used by many organisations, including Affiliate Window, to secure content on the internet. This has been named the heartbleed bug.

This bug could allow an attacker to read some limited parts of the memory of the remote server, which can include the SSL keys – the secret data that ensures your connections are kept secure and encrypted.

Unlike many companies, Affiliate Window employs advanced cryptography techniques to ensure that even if an attacker had managed to steal these secret SSL keys, the attacker would not be able to use this to decrypt other users connections, so your data continues to be protected.

In order to ensure that in the unlikely event someone has stolen our SSL keys, they would be unable to use them, we are working with the global certificate authorities to replace these keys with new ones, and revoke the old ones.

No action from your part is required, and please be reassured that your data continues to be protected.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
