- Windows 7 Security Concerns Driving Significant Fortune 1000 World-wide Enterprise Security Deals
Avecto Ltd, the leader in Windows privilege management, today announced ambitious plans for continued global expansion. The announcement comes hot on the heels of the recent release of Privilege Guard 2.7, which further extended the company's technical leadership.
"Privilege Guard has become the industry's most comprehensive solution for enabling the security principle of least privilege in Windows environments. Users are empowered with all the privileges they need to perform their role but most importantly, the risks associated with the intentional, accidental and indirect misuse of privileges are eliminated. Sales are more than triple those achieved in the first nine months of our last financial year, and we have secured a number of contracts where the license sales of Privilege Guard have exceeded 100,000 desktops. As a direct result, we are expanding our foot-print both in North America and Europe with multiple new hires," says Tony Bolland, CEO at Avecto.
A key part of the expansion plan is the recent move to larger office space in Andover, MA. This expansion is led by VP/ Director of the Americas, Joe L'Italien, who has an extensive and proven track record in building successful sales teams and software companies.
"After evaluating many options we chose the town of Andover, Massachusetts as the best location for our rapidly expanding needs. Privilege Guard has been very well received by large organizations in the aerospace, financial, healthcare, federal and state government sectors as well as other industries here in the US and Canada.
Organizations upgrading to Microsoft's Windows 7 have had a very positive impact on our business. This high level of growth has driven our requirement to add more new hires to our team. This level of expansion ensures Avecto continues to provide customers with the world class service and support they have come to expect,"comments Joe.
