Endpoint security software firm Avecto has reinforced its Scandinavian credentials after awarding Swedish IT security specialists NSEC with Premier Partner status.

The strategic alliance builds on a partnership via Nordics distributor Inuit AB that was first established in 2013. NSEC's new Premier Partner status adds further direct links between the organizations and reflects the extensive work NSEC has carried out for enterprises using Avecto technologies.

The enhanced status also allows NSEC to be more competitive when selling Avecto technologies. Avecto's Defendpoint is the first endpoint solution to combine privilege management, application control and sandboxing - freeing users from IT limitations while increasing security.

Paul Kenyon, EVP at Avecto said: "NSEC has an unrivalled reputation in the Nordic markets for IT security. We've already got a great working relationship and we're looking forward to building on that further.

"From an Avecto perspective, this strategic partnership strengthens our grasp on Northern Europe and will be a huge contributor to our future growth."

NSEC is a leader in the information security space and constantly looking for the best, new and cutting edge technologies to bring to the Nordic region.

Kent Magnusson, CEO at NSEC said: "Avecto is a unique vendor that leverages increased security combined with operational efficiency enhancements and one of very few security vendors that can actually generate a ROI. This is a strong message in a world with an ever growing number of threats."
