Avecto Named a Finalist in Info Security Products Guide’s Global Excellence Awards

Defendpoint Earns Prestigious Industry Recognition for Best Security Software

Security software company Avecto announced today that it has been named a finalist in the Info Security Products Guide 2015 Global Excellence Awards. Its Defendpoint solution was recognized for Best Security Software, the second consecutive year that Avecto has been named a finalist in this category.

The Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

Defendpoint is an integrated endpoint security suite for proactive defense in depth. The first of its kind, it uniquely combines the technologies of privilege management, application control and sandboxing to protect the operating system, software environment and user data from advanced threats.

It empowers employees to be free, without compromising corporate security. Complementing existing patching and antimalware strategies, it offers strength and depth across both desktops and servers as a holistic solution to endpoint security.

"As malware becomes more sophisticated, businesses can no longer expose their endpoint to vulnerabilities, or rely on reactive security solutions for a quick fix, said Andrew Avanessian, Avecto EVP of technology and consultancy services. "With Defendpoint, we've layered three powerful technologies that work in tandem to drive greater defense in depth across the corporation, while empowering users to unlock productivity."

Andrew concluded: "We are thrilled to be recognized as part of the Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards for the second year in a row. It validates our commitment to helping our customers create a proactive and comprehensive security strategy, without compromising on user freedom."
