Push Technology Grows U.S. Presence with More than $5 Million in Series A Funding

Push Technology, a leading provider of data distribution solutions enabling scalable and efficient Web and mobile applications, today announced that it has expanded its presence in the U.S. with a new West Coast office, backed by more than $5 million in Series A funding from Leopard Rock Capital and other existing and new shareholders.

Already, a third of Push Technology’s new business has come from its New York City office this year, so expanding to the West Coast was a natural next step in the company’s progression and continued growth. Its new U.S. headquarters in San Jose, California will be supported by new staff amid a 30 percent global workforce increase. Employees in the San Jose office will aim to grow Push Technology’s customer base in North America, promote product integrations with new, strategic U.S. partners and further existing partnerships, including with IBM.

“We are delighted at the opportunity to support Push Technology at this stage in its growth,” said Gavin Spencer of Leopard Rock Capital. “The company is helping businesses around the world ensure the performance of their apps at scale. Demand for solutions like Diffusion will only increase as data becomes more integral to consumers’ daily use of connected devices. We believe Push Technology has great potential to grow its presence, both in its industry and across global markets.”

This news comes shortly after Push Technology’s launch of Diffusion 5.0, which helps organizations achieve new levels of performance at scale for efficient application data delivery. With a new unified API, enhanced performance, high availability and easy integration with enterprise assets, the platform helps organizations get to market faster with high-performance, scalable, real-time apps and for these to be deployed across a range of mobile operating systems, networks and clients. This is especially important as consumers demand always-on connectivity for machine-to-machine (M2M) technology, over-the-top (OTT) services, Internet of Things apps and wearable devices.

“We’re already seeing growing interest in Diffusion from U.S. companies, so establishing an official presence State-side was key to capitalizing on that interest,” said Sean Bowen, CEO at Push Technology. “The Bay Area, in particular, is a hotbed of next-generation apps and new technologies, and represents a strategic opportunity for us to grow our presence in the U.S., especially as data-heavy trends like the Internet of Things, M2M and Mobility adoption continue to develop.”
