Guardian 8 Personal Defense Product Earns Innovation Nomination

Company Prepared to Accept Orders at ASIS 2012 Expo This September in Philadelphia

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH) (PINKSHEETS: GRDH), developer of the innovative "G8 Pro V2" defense device, announced today that the company's device has recently been nominated for a "Security's Best" award from the security industry's professional association, ASIS. Guardian 8 received its first ASIS Accolade in 2011 for its first generation device and was one of only 10 companies to earn the coveted designation among a field of over seventy other nominees.

Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet commented, "Our latest innovation centers around the Layered Defense aspects of the security guard's duties and we're thrilled at the prospect of receiving our second accolade in as many years of attending ASIS." Cochennet added, "The G8 Pro V2 is a direct result of collaborating with our target market and developing mission-specific features to serve their desire to reduce risk. As a result, we're anticipating an abundance of orders to develop in September and then complete our order fulfillment in the fourth quarter."

In the interval between last year's accolade and this year's nomination, Guardian 8 has strengthened its management team by appointing a number of recognizable industry leaders to its board of directors. Kathy Hanrahan, former President of Taser International, and Corey Lambrecht, formerly of Smith & Wesson, are among the talented people added to the team. Mrs. Hanrahan recently accepted the post of Interim CFO.
