HUDSON, NH - Savant Protection today announces the appointment of Paul Paget as CEO. Paul comes to Savant from Core Security Technologies where he was CEO and led the company for five years from its startup phase to market leader in the enterprise security assurance space.
"I am pleased to be joining Savant at this critical stage of growth," said Paget. "Ken Steinberg and his team have established key early customers, attracted investment, won several important industry awards, and are looked to for thought leadership on security subjects. We are well poised to significantly ramp this company and achieve a leadership position in an emerging segment of security."
Savant enables IT organizations to regain control of their environment by controlling which applications can run on each workstation, server or device. Savant's distributed model can lockdown systems and stop all unauthorized software from running, whether it is shareware, unlicensed software or malicious code. Under the guidance of IT, Savant can prevent unwanted applications that bog down systems, compromise security and create risk in an organization from running.
"There are an unlimited number of attack vectors that can compromise devices. Yet, there are a finite number of applications that have been authorized. In order to protect personal information, credit cards, and financial data, application control technologies are a good complement to existing signature-based defenses." said Mike Rothman, President of analyst firm Security Incite. "Paul Paget is a good fit for Savant, given his experience in growing start-up security companies."
