13th Annual Stevie® Awards Recognizes Avecto for its First-of-its-kind Endpoint Security Software, Defendpoint

Avecto, an innovative technology business specializing in endpoint security, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the 2015 American Business Awards. The company earned the prestigious nomination for its Defendpoint security solution, which was recognized in the "New Product or Service of the Year - Software - International Data Protection and Security Solutions - Less than 100 Employees" category.

In an enterprise landscape riddled with advanced threats, organizations recognize that securing their endpoint is a top priority. The challenge is finding a solution that takes a proactive stance to protecting corporate data, without impacting the user experience.

Avecto's Defendpoint is an integrated endpoint security suite for preemptive 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 (OS), software environment and user data from unknown threats:

  • Defendpoint's Privilege Management module provides a solid security foundation, allowing all users to run with standard accounts, while at the same time ensuring they have the freedom to remain productive.
  • Defendpoint's Application Control module adds a crucial second layer to the security stack, taking control of the business software environment and applying simple rules to manage trusted applications and blocking the unknown.
  • Defendpoint's Sandboxing module complements patching and anti-malware strategies, adding a vital last line of defense against attacks that originate online while keeping users free to safely use the Internet.

"As malware becomes more sophisticated, enterprises are recognizing that they must think smarter about endpoint security, building it from the ground up and layering defenses, rather than relying on singular solutions that are marketed as next-gen panaceas," said Andrew Avanessian, VP at Avecto.

Avanessian continued: "The difficulty to date has been finding a solution that effectively layers all these essential security measures, without hindering freedom. We are proud to be this enterprise solution and very honored to be recognized by the American Business Awards for our revolutionary approach to endpoint security."
