Guardian 8 Corporation Signs On Platinum Event Services, Inc.

Leading Dallas Area Security Provider to Offer Pro V2 Enhanced Non-Lethal Devices

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Guardian 8 Corporation, the wholly owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), a leading provider of enhanced non-lethal (ENL) defense technologies, today announced that it has signed on Platinum Event Services, Inc. in Dallas, Tex., to add the Pro V2 device to its security offering.

Platinum is a prominent provider of security staffing, event and crowd management services, as well as sophisticated electronic video surveillance services, to Fortune 500 and regional companies, organizations, concert and entertainment venues, sporting events and commercial and government properties, throughout the U.S. Platinum provides services to some of the largest venues in the U.S., which include AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium), Texas Motor Speedway, State Fair of Texas, Houston's Minute Maid Park and The Sixth Floor (JFK) Museum. In addition, Platinum offers a sophisticated menu of security services, including consulting, security technology and security staff training. Platinum selected the ProV2 for its low-risk, layered defense response to incidents and enhanced incident reporting.

"The risk associated with our security officers carrying firearms is significant and insurance policies which cover private security companies like ours are very expensive," said Platinum President Joe Mata. "In order to keep our costs competitive and reduce risks, we decided to upgrade our protection profile with Guardian 8's enhanced non-lethal defense technology. I am proposing the Pro V2 to each and every client we have, as the Pro V2 significantly reduces our risks in protecting a client's property, and reduces our clients' risks as well, yet adds significant layers of protection." Mata added, "Until now, an unarmed security officer was only equipped with a night stick on his duty belt. With the Pro V2, our officers have instant communication to a supervisor and security command center, electronic documentation and recording of the incident, and the ability to defend themselves and deter an incident with a targeted OC stream."

"We are very pleased to add Platinum to our growing list of clientele," said Steve Cochennet, Guardian 8 President and CEO. "Professional security companies, particularly those working in high occupancy public venues, such as Platinum, provide vital protection services to hundreds of thousands of spectators every year and are one of the largest verticals in our business. We are excited to see adoption of the Pro V2 gaining momentum in this professional security space."

Guardian 8 will showcase the Pro V2 in Indianapolis, July 8-10, at NCS4.com.
