Mark Austin, co-founder and CEO at Avecto said: "With Microsoft setting a target of 1 billion devices to be migrated by 2017, it’s clear that Windows 10 will be a dominant force in the years to come.

"With an increasing number of organisations contemplating a move to Windows 10, we’ve experienced an uplift in the number of customers asking us to support them in their migration. The addition of Windows 10 support to Defendpoint provides a consistent approach to managing privileges and applications across all Windows endpoints, while sandboxing all web based threats."
