Cloud-hosted desktop provider Dizzion raised another hefty round of funding as it looks to add staff and expand its desktop delivery capabilities. The company has capitalized on the growth of remote workers and cloud computing across industries.
Previous investors Grotech Ventures and Access Venture Partners led the $6.4 million Series A1, with Point B Capital and Correlation Ventures also participating in the round. Dizzion has raised just over $10 million to date. The new funding also brings a new board member, former ViaWest chairman and CEO Roy Dimoff.
“Dizzion is addressing a colossal shift in the workforce toward remote employees, cloud computing and application integration—and it’s not an easy transition for most companies,” Dizzion CEO Steve Prather said in a statement. “We are committed to providing the only virtual desktop that eliminates the complexity of traditional desktop management while addressing endpoint security and compliance risk, and we want to thank our investors for sharing in this vision.”
Founded in 2011, Dizzion provides companies with remote desktop management, allowing users to increase productivity by accessing services on any device while maintaining security. The company claims to have grown more in the last six months than in all of 2015. Clients range from AARP to outsourcing service TELUS International. It also partners with channel partners like ViaWest and CarrierSales.
The funding will help Dizzion grow, both in employee count and its number of partnerships. Plans also include refining the remote desktop system to better service highly sensitive businesses in the healthcare, financial services and insurance industries, along with improvements for outsourced workers.
