Avecto, the leader in Windows Privilege Management has been acknowledged as 'one to recognise' in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league table of private tech (TMT) companies for their continued strong growth in the privilege management sector.

Avecto was commended for their continued strong growth over the last three years, which is a direct result of its innovative privilege management solution, Privilege Guard. As the sophistication of privilege escalation malware continues to evolve, Windows desktops that run with full administrative rights continue to put organisations at real risk of infection. This fact was acknowledged earlier this year by one of the world's largest banks, who have now rolled out Avecto's solution to almost 500,000 of their desktops and laptops.

Founded in 2008, by Mark Austin and Paul Kenyon, Avecto has developed the leading Windows Privilege Management solution, which many of the Fortune 500 companies depend on. "Over the last four years the team at Avecto have developed the most comprehensive and scalable enterprise privilege management solution on the market. We continue to innovate and push the boundaries in this space, with a new release due out next quarter, which will further strengthen our market leading position," says Mark Austin, CTO at Avecto.

"This latest accolade comes hot on the heels of our selection in the Red Herring Top 100 Europe earlier this year, and we are delighted to achieve such recognition," says Paul Kenyon, COO at Avecto. "The consistent and strong growth we have experienced is a result not only of the market leading solution we provide, but also the people behind our business and our close relationships with our partners. I am confident we are poised for some spectacular growth and success as we move into 2013."

Update: Privilege Guard is now Defendpoint
