Windows 7 Adoption Driving Business Growth at Avecto
Manchester (UK) and Boston (USA)
Avecto, the world leader in Windows Privilege Management, today
announced that the increasing migration of organizations to Windows
7, is a key driving factor for boosting year end results upward by
200% on 2010.
Tony Bolland, CEO said "Organizations of all sizes, ranging from
SMEs to large corporations employing over 450,000 people, now rely
on Avecto's Privilege Guard technology to empower users, reduce
operating costs, achieve compliance and strengthen security.
According to IDC research published in 2011, shipments of new
Windows 7 licences will rise to over 109M in 2012. With our
Privilege Guard technology we are enabling customers to deliver the
least risk, least cost Windows 7 desktop environment. These
latest year end results underpin our strategic plans for rapid
growth as we respond to increasing market demands."
In 2010 Gartner research* predicted that with the approaching
end of Windows XP support in 2014, organizations should treat the
rollout of Windows 7 strategically to advance the security of
managed desktops and web browsing.
The impact of this adoption trend across North America, means
that this region alone now represents over 60% of the company's
turnover. To both underpin and sustain this growth, during
2011 Avecto invested heavily in product development with Privilege
Guard 3.0 scheduled to launch in early February. Additionally
Avecto has undertaken a substantial recruitment programme during
2011 in North America, with key new hires now responsible for
managing specific industry verticals, and in Europe new regional
offices are scheduled to open in Germany during the first quarter
Bolland continues, "Our strategy for growth is closely linked to
the escalating need to better secure Windows environments.
Privilege Guard continues to exceed market expectations, and our
new, deeper and more collaborative alliances with industry giants
such as HP, CSC, Citrix and McAfee, have helped propel us into a
world leading position for Windows Privilege Management."
