Pompey are delighted to welcome TotalAV on board as the club’s new Back of Shirt Sponsor.
The local award-winning antivirus protection company have signed a two-year deal to partner with the Blues.
Their logo will appear on the back of all home, away and third shirts worn by the team, as well as replica kits.
Billy Thomas, CEO of TotalAV, said: “It’s always been something we've wanted to do, but never thought we would have the opportunity.
“Where a number of us grew up as Pompey supporters, it really was a no-brainer when we heard about the vacancy.
“We are really excited about the sponsorship and look forward to working closely with the club.”
Anna Mitchell, Pompey’s Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We are thrilled to welcome TotalAV on board as the club’s new Back of Shirt Sponsor.
“They are an innovative, forward-thinking business and, we feel, a great fit for Portsmouth Football Club.
“It is a partnership that we feel will benefit both parties, as well as our passionate supporters, who will be able to benefit from a number of great offers over the next couple of years – and hopefully beyond.”
Pompey fans who have already bought 2020/21 kits will be able to have the TotalAV logo printed on the back of their shirts, with details to follow in due course.
"We are really excited about the sponsorship and look forward to working closely with the club.”
Launched in 2016 and located in Segensworth, Fareham, TotalAV are one of the fastest-growing antivirus security suites globally, developing an industry leading software that prevents even the most advanced cyber-crime attacks.
With a core team of just 45 employees, TotalAV has achieved multiple company milestones and has been awarded certifications from leading industry platforms such as Microsoft, AppEsteem, Virus Bulletin, AV-Comparatives and AV-Test.
As for the office, culture plays a key role and we are about as far from corporate as it gets. We prefer shorts and flip-flops to suits and ties, and the office has been designed to supply multiple sport breakout areas, including access to a pool table, dartboard and an outdoor basketball court.
The TotalAV software itself has become award-winning, with the ability to warn users of scam phishing emails, provide extensive virus protection, and protect customer data effectively with anti-spyware and anti-ransomware capabilities. We are now noticed for our renowned 100% WildList malware detection.
In addition to the antivirus protection, TotalAV offers a full security suite of more than 22 tools, which have been built into an exclusive package, discounted for all Pompey supporters. This includes features such as Safe Browsing (VPN), an Ad Blocker that removes unwanted browser adverts, personal Data Breach alerts, a Password Vault to store passwords securely and a Safe Site Browser Extension. All available through the all-in-one application, making the complicated world of cybersecurity safer and easier to understand.
In 2019, the industry saw cyberattacks on smartphones increase by 50% year on year. Therefore, TotalAV has continued to develop and strengthen the level of protection we offer, across the fast- changing digital landscape. Compatible with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac devices, the software is able to protect all major personal use devices, as well as the ability to share additional licenses with friends and family members.
The team have worked incredibly hard and we are so excited to have the opportunity to showcase the brand locally and support our local team.
