We’re constantly on the lookout for the best tools to protect our business, especially since we stream the most prominent sporting events yearly to tens of millions of people worldwide. GeoGuard far exceeded our expectations during our recent tool evaluation testing. We are now delighted to be working with GeoComply as a new partner,” said Sandeep Tiku, Chief Technology Officer at DAZN.
