Bringing Cyber Safety to Esports

Norton Gaming Sponsors the Largest Regional Online Esports Tournament, 2021 Razer Invitational – North America

Norton Gaming has teamed up with 2021 Razer Invitational – North America, combining Cyber Safety with the ultimate esports tournament for gamers. 

Last year, the competition drew 60,000 esport athletes and 24 million viewers worldwide. Great participation from players to viewers!  

Norton Gaming is part of Norton, bringing together expertise in security with a focus on gamers and providing protection for stellar game play. We signed on as the sole, premier sponsor of the month-long competition because our ambition is to bring Cyber Safety to as many gamers as possible.  

As part of our sponsorship, we’ll offer every athlete in the Razer Invitational – North America a complimentary one-year subscription to Norton 360 for Gamers — now available globally —which includes security features such as a Secure VPN, Dark Web Monitoring(§) to notify you if we find your gamer tags on the dark web, PC SafeCam(1) which notifies you if someone tries to access your camera, and Notification Optimization (2), to limit the amount of notifications you receive on your PC while gaming.(3)

We think it’s smart for gamers to make Cyber Safety part of their game plan. And here’s why. Cybercrime continues to rise and target more gamers. 

Our recent Gaming & Cybercrime survey found 33% of gamers in the U.S. said their accounts were hacked, resulting in lost digital currency, digital items, progress in game, characters, and entire accounts.  

Gamers face unique cyberthreats. Our focus is to support gamers by helping them stay safe and secure while they play so the players can do exactly what they want to do — focus on winning.  

And, besides, we love gaming. 

Here’s how Khang Thai, Razer’s Senior Global Esports Lead, sees it. “Partnering with us on such an amazing event shows that Norton Gaming is committed to seeing the competitive scene grow, while allowing players to compete securely and unhindered.”  

Exactly!  

Want to check it out? The tournament runs from May 7 through June 5, with players all over North America battling it out in Fortnite, Rainbow 6 Siege, and Brawl Stars. The prize pool includes gaming hardware, up to $30,000, and a free one-year subscription to Norton 360 for Gamers for all participants
