VDI and DaaS startup Dizzion raises $6.4M in Series A1 funding

Developer and provider of cloud computing, hosting, software development and desktop support services Dizzion has announced that it has raised $6.4 million in a Series A1 funding round co-led by investors Grotech Ventures and Access Venture Partners, with Point B Capital and Correlation Ventures rounding out major investments. Roy Dimoff, retired ViaWest Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder has joined Dizzion’s board of directors. The company aims to use this funding to grow its staff (by 130 percent in 2016 and again in 2017), expand its partner program and further refine Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) technology to serve industries with some challenging workforce environments including business process outsourcing and the healthcare, financial services and insurance. Founded in 2011, Denver-based enables end users to securely access applications and data from their desktop on any device, responding to the enterprise shift to cloud and global workforce trends including third-party contracting, work-from-home programs and a greater requirement for organizations to protect data. The company caters to many sectors including insurance, financial services, healthcare and business process outsourcing. It claims that its solutions solve some of the most persistent challenges in end user computing including device flexibility, location constraints, data security, and unpredictable performance issues. Steve Prather, CEO, Dizzion said:
“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. 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.”
The company secured $3.9 million in series A funding round in January 2016 and with this funding, the total goes to $10.3 million. In the month of August, the company also collaborated with an infrastructure consulting firm ANTARA in order to offer advanced cloud solution to help the mid-sized enterprise.
