Defendpoint software completes UK reseller's portfolio

Global security software company, Avecto, has announced ITB as the most recent addition to its channel partner program.

This partnership means that ITB can now offer a more comprehensive security package to its customers with the inclusion of Avecto's recently updated Defendpoint v5.0 software, which will help customers to achieve least privilege overnight.

ITB is a leading independent supplier of IT security infrastructure, professional services and managed services, with a focus on IT security. The business will now offer Defendpoint to its substantial customer base that spans the healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and consumer sectors.

Avecto Defendpoint solution will complement ITB's existing suite of security software from the likes of McAfee and Barracuda. This means that ITB will benefit from offering a complete solution for businesses looking to strengthen their cyber defenses before GDPR comes into force next year.

Matthew Hibberd, co-owner at ITB, said: "We have seen increased demand for an all-in-one security solution, which includes access rights management. Avecto is the industry leader in privilege management, and so it was the obvious final piece of the jigsaw. The product complements our existing suite of security technology, allowing for seamless integration. This means that our customers can now implement the most effective security solutions faster than ever."

Ben Audley, vice president at Avecto, commented: "Businesses understand that protecting their data is paramount, especially as they prepare for GDPR to come into force next year. But many don’t realize that security is simple, as long as they invest in the right software.

"ITB is dedicated to offering a fully-rounded security solution to its customers, and together we are helping more organizations protect themselves from modern and evolving threats."
