Who we are

Avecto was founded by entrepreneurs Mark Austin and Paul Kenyon, who shared a vision of stopping cyber attacks, without stopping employee productivity.

As they developed Avecto's endpoint security software, their vision quickly became a reality as the company experienced phenomenal demand across the globe. Now protecting over 8 million endpoints at some of the world's largest brands, the company has three offices and a growing network of channel partners facilitating its continued success.

  • "We take a unique approach to stop cyber attacks by being proactive on the endpoint. Importantly, we make the user experience a positive one so strong security does not come at the expense of usability."

    Mark Austin, Co-CEO
  • "Our people are our strongest asset and we work hard to retain our dynamic and innovative culture. It's this, and the proven strength of our unique software that keeps us a step ahead."

    Paul Kenyon, Co-CEO
