Ziften Making Its Presence Known

ziftenSoftware innovation, proven solutions and an experienced team: this is how one can describe the Austin, Texas-based Ziften Technologies, a private firm that is changing the software industry one program at a time.

Its software permits companies and organizations to achieve end-to-end visibility and control of devices across the Windows operating system, the cloud features and mobile gadgets.

Since its foundation in 2009, Ziften has established a few technology firms, which have experienced incredible growth and have increased shareholder wealth through the means of successful mergers, acquisitions and IPS.

For the past four years, the company has received acceptance in the commercial community due its solutions through product launches and gaining new clients involved in the energy, media, retail and public industries.

Because of this, Fayez Sarofirm & Co. is depicted as one of the most important investors in Ziften. It was recently announced that it invested an additional $5 million into the company to help broaden the reach of Ziften’s solutions.

“Market drivers such as BYOD are causing IT to look for new solutions that offer manageability and intelligence across all enterprise clients, from the desktop to the cloud and beyond,” said Charles Leaver, CEO of Ziften Technologies, in a statement. “We are pleased that our investors are providing us the financial resources that will enable us to build upon our first-to-market achievements and accelerate our technology leadership in the fast-moving enterprise client management space.”

Ziften was added to the list of fastest-growing private technology firms in the city of Austin. In part because of its experience and knowledge of security and application performances, Ziften has been approved dozens of patients and still has 11 patents pending.

The company has grown so much that it has an additional location in the nation of France. Most of its success can be attributed to the highly-qualified ocean of talent, which has assisted in the unprecedented growth that has been attainted thus far.

Mark Obrech is the founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Ziften. He has 11 patents in the area of behavioral malware detection, process classification and system efficiency. Meanwhile, Leaver maintains more than three decades of experience as an entrepreneur, senior executive and advisor in the IT, mobile and media sectors.

Ziften has several technology collaborators, global outsourcing partners and resale channel cohorts.  These affiliations have been imperative for Ziften because they have contributed so much to the company’s various solutions and have brought original concepts to achieve its aims.

Recently, Ziften announced a new strategic partnership with Optimal2, a Sweden-based software asset management and information management specialist.  This latest step will aid Ziften to increase its presence in Europe.  Ziften also has added a broad network of value added resellers, distributors and solution providers.

Leaver explained in a news release that the collaboration would allow it to offer solutions throughout the continent of Europe and the dedication, hard work and excellence presented by Optimal2 would be the best route to take.
