Avecto, the leader in Windows privilege management, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list recognizes companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology.

Avecto was selected as an emerging software vendor based on the innovation and rapid channel adoption of Privilege Guard, its industry-leading solution that enables the security principle of least privilege in Windows environments. Avecto has built a strong channel partnership program featuring industry-leading resellers, systems integrators and consulting organizations to deliver the benefits of least privilege management to its customers worldwide.

"Solution providers are always looking for new and innovative technology to solve business problems for their customers. As this industry has shown, today's emerging vendor can be tomorrow's Cisco, Google or Facebook and getting ahead of technology can help a VAR grow their business and differentiate their offerings," said Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, Everything Channel.

Avecto Privilege Guard is the industry's most comprehensive solution for enabling the security principle of least privilege in Windows environments. Privilege Guard eliminates the need to assign admin rights to users and allows enterprises to dynamically assign these rights to applications, tasks and scripts. Privilege Guard enables users to log on to Windows desktops and servers with minimal rights while empowering them to perform their day-to-day role, leading to increased security, simplified compliance with industry regulations and reduced support costs.

"Avecto is honored to be selected by CRN as an emerging software vendor," said Paul Kenyon, chief operating officer at Avecto. "This is a testament to the company's rapid growth and the industry's need for a reliable solution for managing admin rights to achieve least privilege for their Windows environments. We look forward to helping organizations across the globe deploy secure and compliant desktops and servers and leveraging our strong channel program as a key factor in achieving that goal."

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2004 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.
