Dizzion Secures Series A Funding to Lead Growing End User Computing Industry

January 28, 2015

DENVER – Colorado-based Dizzion, Inc. today announced it has received $3.9 million in Series A funding from co-lead investors Grotech Ventures and Access Venture Partners with Point B Capital, Correlation Ventures and Service Provider Capital completing the investment round.  The funding will enable Dizzion to continue to expand its presence in the fast growing end user computing market, which includes Virtual Desktops and Desktop as a Service (DaaS).

Founded in late 2011, Dizzion provides industry-leading end user computing services to companies globally, including TELUS International, Delta Dental and Red Robin Restaurants. Dizzion delivers high-performance virtualized desktop environments that provide the fastest end user experience, while also being flexible and customizable for businesses with stringent security and compliance needs, such as financial services, health care and contact center companies.  In addition to providing services directly to customers, the company has nineteen reseller partners, including HOSTING, ViaWest and DTSi that bundle Dizzion technology with their core service capabilities providing customers with comprehensive outsourced IT solutions.

“Outsourcing end user computing requirements eliminates the expense and frustration of corporate desktops, which are difficult and expensive to manage, and allow sensitive corporate information to walk out of the building every day,” said Steve Prather, CEO of Dizzion. “In addition, traditional desktop computing is giving way to the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and mobile device access trends.  Because of this, companies require more flexible ways to manage and secure corporate and sensitive data such as personally identifiable information, credit card numbers and health records while allowing users the ubiquitous access they require from the device of their choice.  Dizzion helps solve these problems by creating a highly secure, virtualized corporate work environment that meets compliance standards and still takes companies into 21st century computing.

Many companies have attempted to build Citrix or VMware based Virtual Desktop environments with few having success.  Dizzion allows customers to easily benefit from the service and removes the do it yourself risk.  An added benefit of Dizzion’s cloud-delivered desktops is improved corporate productivity.  From eliminating slow boot-ups that waste employees’ time to preventing costly malware from entering a company’s environment, Dizzion’s solutions are touted by customers as a significant productivity tool.  Dizzion provides personalized service and support with trained, live account teams available 24x7x365.

“Desktop virtualization is expected to grow to a $5.6 billion industry, and we believe this market has potential to grow larger as corporate computing adapts to cloud technology,” said Joe Zell from Grotech Partners. “Dizzion detected this market opportunity years ago and has a strong leadership position, poising it for expansion in both market size and technology innovation.  The additional capital infusion will help Dizzion take advantage of its substantial market presence and further advance cloud computing into the corporate workspace, especially into particular vertical industries.

Dizzion has realized double-digit revenue growth every year since it began, and with this new investment, it plans to more-than-double its team, allowing it to serve more customers across the globe.  It will also increase its visible market presence, as well as form new partnerships with key technology leaders so it can continue to offer an innovative and comprehensive, all-inclusive service to customers.
