BOSTON and MANCHESTER, England, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

– Windows 7 Security Concerns Driving Significant Fortune 1000 World-wide
Enterprise Security Deals

Avecto Ltd, the leader in Windows privilege management, today announced
ambitious plans for continued global expansion. The announcement comes hot on
the heels of the recent release of Privilege Guard 2.7, which further
extended the company’s technical leadership.

“Privilege Guard has become the industry’s most comprehensive solution
for enabling the security principle of least privilege in Windows
environments. Users are empowered with all the privileges they need to
perform their role but most importantly, the risks associated with the
intentional, accidental and indirect misuse of privileges are eliminated.
Sales are more than triple those achieved in the first nine months of our
last financial year, and we have secured a number of contracts where the
license sales of Privilege Guard have exceeded 100,000 desktops. As a direct
result, we are expanding our foot-print both in North America and Europe with
multiple new hires,” says Tony Bolland, CEO at Avecto.

A key part of the expansion plan is the recent move to larger office
space in Andover, MA. This expansion is led by VP/ Director of the Americas,
Joe L’Italien, who has an extensive and proven track record in building
successful sales teams and software companies.

“After evaluating many options we chose the town of Andover,
Massachusetts
as the best location for our rapidly expanding needs. Privilege
Guard has been very well received by large organizations in the aerospace,
financial, healthcare, federal and state government sectors as well as other
industries here in the US and Canada.

Organizations upgrading to Microsoft’s Windows 7 have had a very positive
impact on our business. This high level of growth has driven our requirement
to add more new hires to our team. This level of expansion ensures Avecto
continues to provide customers with the world class service and support they
have come to expect,”comments Joe.
