Integration of products and services begins immediately, with TowerData clients gaining access to FreshAddress’s SafeToSend® and SafeToSend+ email verification, hygiene, and monitoring services, the most powerful and accurate offering available, while FreshAddress clients will benefit from the over 1 billion monthly signals fueling TowerData’s Email Activity Metrics to help further clean and protect their customer databases. Together, the companies will leverage their ever-growing data assets to continue adding features to their global Email Verification and Deliverability services, expanding coverage of Identity Matching and Email Intelligence services, and accelerating their Fraud Prevention program.

“We’re excited to be joining forces with TowerData, a company we’ve partnered with since their early beginnings,” said Bill Kaplan, “Our two businesses have successfully helped companies and nonprofits maximize their engagement, revenues, and profits through email for over twenty years.” By combining our platforms, data assets, and expertise, we will be able to provide our clients with the best tools for protecting and enhancing their email databases through real-time APIs, automated FTP, and via self-service portals.”
