A year and a half ago we launched the AeroFS Private Cloud to bring secure collaboration to traditional enterprises. Our goal is to bring “consumer grade” collaboration tools to large enterprises with strict security, compliance, and data sovereignty requirements.
Over the past 18 months we have had an incredible adoption with our users, reinforcing and proving our own beliefs that there is a huge need for secure collaboration platforms. Large household names in finance, telecom, automotive, IT, and many other industries have signed up to become customers. Some of them started with deployments of just 50 users and now have well over 1,000. Others immediately realized the need and signed up for larger accounts.
As we have interacted with more and more companies, we also learned of more of their needs around collaboration in the enterprise. The $10M Series B we’re announcing today, led by Avalon Ventures and NHN Investment, will be used to address many of these needs, while also allowing us to reach even more customers and enter new markets.
We are excited about the future of AeroFS, and we are excited for the road(map) ahead.
I’d also like to take a moment and thank our users and customers. Without you, we wouldn’t be here today. It truly is a pleasure working with all of you.
Thanks for sharing in our ride so far!
