Avecto is referred to as pioneer by Gartner
In the latest Gartner report, which was published October 2017 – ” Reduce Access to Windows Local Administrator with Endpoint Privilege Management” – Avecto is mentioned several times as a pioneer within the EPM-market.

The following statements from the report may be helpful in a discussion with existing and new customers.
• “Reducing access to local administrator rights is one of the best things you can do to improve Windows security. However, balancing access restrictions with user experience is a challenge that many businesses fail to get right” – Gartner.
• “Organizations should exercise the principle of least privilege for local administrative access. When an application or service requires administrative privilege, the end user should log on as a standard user, and privilege should be elevated according to policy.” – Gartner.
• “Endpoint privilege management (EPM) technologies combine application control and privilege management to ensure that only trusted applications run, and they run with the lowest possible privilege”- Gartner.
• “Access to local administrative rights should be removed from the majority of users in an organization if tighter security is to be achieved.”- Gartner.
• According to Gartner, “Removing administrator rights from end users and running as a “standard user” can provide a significant amount of protection from Malware, as well as operational compliance benefits.”
• “Avecto is a pioneer in the EPM market.” – Gartner
