Endpoint security company Avecto has today announced the launch of its new cloud-based management platform, iC3.

Centered on Avecto’s award-winning Defendpoint software, the Intelligent Communication, Coordination and Control (iC3) platform will provide highly scalable, cloud-based management initially hosted in Windows Azure.

With the introduction of iC3, and the existing Group Policy and ePO Editions, Avecto’s clients can choose the most appropriate management platforms for their environment.

Mark Austin, Co-CEO and Co-founder of Avecto commented: “In addition to providing cloud- based management for Windows and Mac devices, both on and off the corporate network, iC3 will be at the center of our vision for endpoint security.

“Our future roadmap will unveil some exciting capabilities that will enable Defendpoint’s proactive approach to endpoint security to be enriched through iC3, by providing intelligence back to the endpoints.”

Avecto is exhibiting at RSA Conference in San Francisco, February 29 – March 4. For more information on Defendpoint or iC3 please visit Avecto at booth S745 or www.avecto.com.
