SAN FRANCISCO — ironSource (NYSE: IS), a leading business platform for the App Economy, today announced the expansion of its partnership with Samsung, as it launches on mobile devices in the Middle East and North Africa. Aura, ironSource’s solution suite for telecom operators and OEMs, is already integrated on Samsung mobile devices in more than 30 markets, including Europe, Russia, South East Asia and India, and ironSource will now be Samsung’s sole partner on newly released A-series and M-series mobile devices in over 50 markets across MENA – strengthening Aura’s footprint in the region.
