PSafe Partners with the Golden State Warriors
We recently moved headquarters to San Franciso and are celebrating with an exciting, new partnership. The dfndr brand is going to high places.
PSafe Technology began as a small Brazilian startup 8 years ago with a mission to secure users online experiences and only one Android app on the market, PSafe Total.
Fast forward a few years later, our team has grown to over 150 staff worldwide and PSafe Total underwent a brand makeover, becoming “DFNDR Security”, which catapulted to first-class status, having been downloaded 130 million times and awarded with 100% scores in antivirus detection by the third-party AV-TEST Institute.
Not to rest on our laurels for long, last year we ambitiously expanded our suite of dfndr apps. Let’s just say life got very productive around here and changed rapidly.
These spurts of growth made us realize our scrappy startup has transformed into a global, multi-platform company and it was time to take our brand to global heights.
One of the most exciting changes was to move the PSafe Technology headquarters from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to San Francisco, California in 2017.
Once we settled into new digs, the call of community became strong. PSafe is full of innovators, so it only makes sense to immerse ourselves in this dynamic city of innovators and invest in the local community.
We searched far and wide, remained patient, and can finally say with elation the right partnership arrived.
This partnership also coincides with the global rebrand of our suite of dfndr apps. We’ve matured over the past 8 years so our new look is modern, fresh and fun.
Without further delay, it’s time for the BIG announcement!
We’re pleased to announce the dfndr brand is now a proud partner of the Golden State Warriors basketball team!
You’ll be seeing more of us during the rest of the 2017-18 season, and throughout the 2018-19 season as well.
Since San Francisco takes pride in their local heroes, the Golden State Warriors, we thought it was fitting to bring our brand mascot, Rio, from Brazil to the new home base. After all, It’d be wrong to leave our special guy behind. Picture him as your hero and protector, infusing your mobile phone with “superpowers” to fight against hackers or battery drain.
The connection between the Golden State Warriors and dfndr is the perfect union of brand integrity and principles.
Where Can You Catch Us and the Golden State Warriors?
We’ll be on your smartphone screens during home games. You can easily find a link to our dfndr vpn app after connecting to the Oracle Arena WiFi.
It’s wise to add privacy protection anytime you connect to public Wi-Fi. A VPN, or virtual private network, acts as an encrypted tunnel to hide all your online activities from snoops or hackers.
Think of it as having the superpower to be “invisible”, which means your phone is safe and your social shares are private as you snap or record the court action in real-time.
And don’t forget to look at the video board in the center of the arena — you might see us greeting you or sharing some important tidbit.
You’ll also see our spiffy new brand logo on the stanchion arms of each basketball net exactly where Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry make those epic plays against their opponents.
“Being part of the Golden State Warriors, a beloved symbol of the Bay Area, is a well-aligned partnership for the dfndr brand,” said Marco DeMello, CEO, and founder of PSafe. “Both of our teams adhere to and cultivate the same values of excellence, loyalty, and trust. We look forward to supporting these exceptional champions during the basketball season.”
We hope you’re excited about this partnership as much as we are. We’ll be sharing game highlights on our social channels as the basketball season progresses, so stop by Facebook or Twitter to say ‘hi”, or maybe we’ll see you courtside too. 🙂
