WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/05/12 -- Viewfinity (www.viewfinity.com), the innovator of privilege management solutions, today announced that the company has partnered with e92plus Limited, a leading valued added distributor in the U.K. e92plus will distribute Viewfinity's industry leading privilege management and application control solution through its reseller partners throughout the U.K.
Under the terms of the partnership, e92plus will distribute Viewfinity's market-leading Privilege Management 4.0 to European resellers who provide solutions to secure desktops and servers, or those customers seeking a compliance-driven solution for locking down their desktop environment.
"Many times the companies you partner with are just as important as your core technology in determining your overall success in the market," said Leonid Shtilman, CEO, Viewfinity. "Our partnership with e92plus Limited gives us a very strong partner for going to market within the United Kingdom. We look forward to working with them to extend the success of our Privilege Management solution to the U.K."
The announcement follows recent Viewfinity U.K. customer wins including Aberdeen University and Oxford University Press.
Mukesh Gupta, Managing Director at e92plus, sees a clear opportunity for resellers. "A fundamental safeguard to preventing security attacks is to remove administrative privileges from the desktop, creating a least privileges environment to secure endpoints. We have seen that AV has failed with malware such as Flame, the existing OS doesn't provide for granular management and so Viewfinity offers a perfect solution to protect against threats without layer after layer of additional software."
He continues, "Since Viewfinity is the only vendor in the privilege management market with the ability to extend privilege management policies to control permissions for data, offer three deployment methods, seamlessly manage remote workers, and offer the most intuitive and easy to user GUI, we believe we have an outstanding privilege management solution for our reseller partner network and their customers."
Viewfinity Privilege Management 4.0, a compelling and major upgrade to the company's flagship product, provides enterprises with an automated approach for managing rights and privileges for standard users on Windows endpoints and servers as well as least privilege control for data. Viewfinity's new intelligent automation identifies commonly needed privileges across the entire user base within an organization and automatically aggregates privilege needs, then creates a single policy to address the common need for a collective group of users. This containment of policy proliferation results in enormous time, cost and management savings.
Viewfinity provides privilege management and application control for desktops, laptops and servers, empowering enterprises to meet compliance mandates, reduce security risks, and lower IT costs. The Viewfinity solution allows enterprises to control end user and privileged user rights for applications and systems which require elevated permissions. Viewfinity's granular-level control enables companies to establish and enforce consistent policies for least privilege Windows-based environments based on segregation of duties.
