Endpoint security software firm, Avecto has announced phenomenal growth in North America with revenue up 67% in the region year on year.

The company, with global headquarters in Manchester, England significantly expanded its operations in North America with the relocation of its office from Cambridge to larger premises at Assembly Row, Somerville. The move allowed Avecto to create more jobs, with headcount across North America up 75% in the past 12 months.

The latest results have been supported by huge demand for Avecto’s Defendpoint security software, the first and only software of its kind to combine the core capabilities of privilege management, application control and content isolation to stop cyber attacks. Avecto’s software protects over 8 million end users, including many of America’s biggest brands.

In December 2015, Avecto secured a $49m minority investment from JMI Equity, a growth equity firm based in Baltimore.

Paul Kenyon, co-founder and co-CEO of Avecto said:

“From day one we knew how important it was to establish a footprint in North America.

“We feel like we’re really just at the start of our journey here and over the next few years we have even more ambitious growth plans. A significant part of this will be continued investment in our people and in growing our talented US workforce as we take the benefits of Defendpoint to even more organizations.”

Avecto is actively recruiting in America with a number of open positions available to view at avecto.com/careers.
