Verimatrix, (Paris:VMX) (Euronext Paris: VMX), the leader in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, today announced sponsorship of Team 7 AM as well as The Goose House, one of the fastest growing esports and gaming communities in the UK. The announcement follows the company’s recent news it was named an official partner of ESL Premiership, one of the most anticipated tournament competitions from the world’s largest esports company. The engagement also builds upon Verimatrix’s strategy to be a key player in securing live sports revenue and support new direct-to-consumer OTT models.
Jerseys for Team 7AM and The Goose House will prominently feature the Verimatrix logo while the organizations will also include Verimatrix branding on Twitch/Discord streaming events, websites, social media posts, as well as various in-tournament promotions. Verimatrix plans to offer webinar and other events that feature both organizations and serve as a venue for creating awareness around integrity in gameplay as well as cybersecurity’s role in protecting the industry’s ever-growing revenue streams.
“We are excited to announce Verimatrix as an official Team 7AM sponsor for 2021,” said John ‘WundA’ Smith-Howell, Managing Director at Team 7AM. “Corporate sponsorships are one of the most authentic ways a brand can support local esports players. We’re excited to welcome them to the team.”
“The Goose House is a huge proponent of protecting the esports ecosystem,” said David “data” Taylor, Co-Owner at The Goose House. “We look forward to helping Verimatrix become an active member-participant in our tournaments and in our community.”
“Understanding esports from the athlete, team, community and tournament point of view is critical to developing security solutions that effectively safeguard esports revenue streams,” said Jon Samsel, Vice President of Global Marketing at Verimatrix. “Not unlike the early days of the traditional sports industry, esports faces growing threats from bad actors looking to disrupt, steal and profit off the hard work of others. Stream ripping, application hacks and game cheats can impact the integrity of gameplay and destabilize the esports ecosystem. Verimatrix is excited to extend our secure delivery expertise into this fast-growing market.”
