MANCHESTER, United Kingdom & BOSTON & MUNICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Avecto, the market leader in privilege management software, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, named Avecto’s Privilege Guard a Silver winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the Identity Management category. Avecto has now been recognized by the prestigious guide two years in a row (2012, 2013), underscoring its leadership in the least privilege management arena.
The esteemed Global Excellence Industry Awards recognize distinction in every facet of the security industry including products, best companies and people behind the successes. The selection process involved more than 50 judges evaluating the Identity Management category finalists, which in addition to Avecto, included other notable organizations within the sector.
The Avecto Privilege Guard solution was selected as the Silver winner amongst this competitive field of entries, in part, because its technology was developed for Windows based desktop and server users that comprise some of the largest and demanding organizations in the world. Avecto’s solution enables organizations to strike the elusive balance between user productivity, security and compliance with a combination of application elevation, application control, end-user messaging and a complete auditing and reporting framework for all Windows-based systems. Privilege Guard can be used to grant privileges to applications, or users. In turn, Avecto’s least privilege approach enables a productive work environment that is not burdened with excessive lockdowns.
“We are delighted to gain a silver award for the second year in a row, especially given the broad range of organizations that were in the running. This is a testament to the dedication and technical expertise of our entire team,” said Paul Kenyon, Avecto co-founder and EVP of Sales. “Enterprises are under immense pressure to empower users with the flexibility they need to perform their jobs, without compromising security.
