Avecto Ltd, the leader in Windows privilege management today announced the opening of a new, larger DACH regional office with effect from 1st December 2012. The new office, located in München is a direct result of growing demand for the company's award winning Privilege Guard technology from within the region.

"As malware becomes more and more intelligent the threat landscape changes, which means taking a layered approach to security can pay dividends. The potential and demand for Privilege Guard across Europe is proving to be enormous, and we plan to fully capitalize on this." says Paul Kenyon, EVP Sales at Avecto "Our expansion is additionally fueled by some impressive customer wins during 2012, and the continued growth of our global partner network. We have recently added both sales representatives and pre-sales consultants to our DACH team, this combined with the addition of new partners to our channel program has driven the need for larger office space to be aquired now rather than in the New Year."

The Avecto team continues to grow under the leadership of Karsten Specht and the newest members of the Avecto Channel program include:

  • perinova IT-Management GmbH- is a highly experienced IT Project Management company who provide strategic advice and support to help organizations securely manage their IT infrastructures. Perinova has regional offices in Stuttgart and Zurich.
  • MKW- is a leading supplier and distributor of hardware and software components in Switzerland with an expertise in IT security.

"Effectively managing user activity across any IT estate is becoming more and more complex in the light of ever changing mandatory and regulatory compliance. As a result we see the addition of Avecto's Privilege Guard technology to our portfolio as an essential component in helping organisations achieve that compliance." Says Holger Aich, Product Manager at perinova.

With effect from 1st of December, Avecto's new DACH regional office address is Avecto Ltd, Wappenhalle Business Center, Konrad-Zuse-Platz 8, 81829 München
