Avecto, a leader in Privilege Elevation and Delegation Management software, has been awarded Gold status in the 9th annual Golden Bridge Awards. Avecto’s Defendpoint software was recognized for Innovation in Privilege Access Management.

The prestigious Golden Bridge Awards acknowledge the world’s best in organizational performance, innovation, products, and services.

Commenting on the award win, Mark Austin, co-CEO and co-founder at Avecto said: “This is the third time Avecto has been recognized by The Golden Bridge Awards, either for our innovation or our business growth, but to take Gold for innovation in PAM is high reward indeed.

“Our development teams are constantly innovating and improving our Defendpoint software to ensure it continues to lead the field. It combines privilege management and application control in a single agent, enabling all users to work under a standard user account while providing highly effective application control that is simple to manage”
