The funding will be used to expand Zumigos’ business operations as it accelerates new product development and customer rollouts to meet growing global demand, including investments in sales and marketing.
“In an increasingly connected world, mobile, cloud, security, location and commerce are fundamental to any services strategy,” said Hank Skorny, vice president and general manager of Intel Services. “With their best-in-class commerce fraud solution, we see Zumigo as a leader in this space.”
With the rampant growth of mobile usage, the industry is seeing growing adoption of mobile networks and applications to secure and enable commerce, whether conducted in physical stores, on tablets and laptops, or on mobile phones. Zumigo has been working with major financial institutions globally to enable and secure payment transactions and help retailers and consumers prevent fraud. The announcement follows the news that Wells Fargo has also invested in Zumigo. Zumigo is one of the inaugural members of the Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator, a new program for innovators whose technology ideas in payments, deposits, fraud operations and other fields could shape future customer experiences in financial services.
“We are seeing a plethora of new security, financial and other applications that will utilize Zumigo’s products,” said Zumigo Founder and CEO Chirag Bakshi. “This new financing validates our direction and success, and will accelerate growth in our core business of providing mobile location and identity products to financial organisations and enterprises alike.”
