INDIANAPOLIS – September 20, 2018 – DEFENDERS, a leading provider of residential security and smart home solutions and ADT’s only Premier Provider, reached a major milestone this week by helping protect its two millionth family.

Since being founded by Dave and Jessica Lindsey in 1998, DEFENDERS has grown into ADT’s largest partner, with more than 2,800 team members in 159 locations nationwide. In recent years, DEFENDERS has been recognized as one of Indianapolis’ fastest-growing private companies.

“My wife Jessica and I started this company 20 years ago in a spare bedroom of our Indianapolis home, barely installing 15 systems in a month. I never imagined that just two decades later our company would be protecting its two millionth family. I am beyond proud of our DEFENDERS team members and their dedication to keeping families, homes and neighborhoods safe,” said Dave Lindsey.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate DEFENDERS’ 20th anniversary than by reaching this incredible milestone,” stated Jim Boyce, President and CEO of DEFENDERS.  “We believe businesses don’t grow, people do. With that growth comes a strong commitment to making sure bad things don’t happen to good people.  It is a privilege to provide peace of mind and protection to millions of people across the United States.”
