SkyGiraffe, an Israeli end-to-end enterprise mobility platform that enables organizations to mobilize line-of-business systems, has closed a $6 million Series B financing round. The investment was led by SGVC with participation from Trilogy Equity Partners, and also included angel investments from enterprise mobility and security veterans including Heroku Founder and CEO James Lindenbaum, Parse Founder and CEO Ilya Sukhar, and Lookout Founder and CTO Kevin Mahaffey.
The latest funding will be used funding to expand the capabilities of SkyGiraffe's platform among other initiatives. To that end, the company has announced expanded functionality to provide a single, secure endpoint for developers to build on top of the SkyGiraffe platform, enabling read and write access from enterprise applications such as SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and ServiceNow.
SkyGiraffe is headquartered in Menlo Park, California and has its development center in Ramat Gan, Israel. The company was founded by CEO Boaz Hecht and VP R&D Itay Braun and has raised $10.5 million to date including the latest financing round. Previous investors included 500 Startups, Microsoft Ventures, Trilogy Equity Partners and angels.
SkyGiraffe provides developers with the full, secure access to the backend data on top of which they need to build applications. The REST endpoint can be integrated into popular third-party front-end applications like Slack, Office365, Skype, and Google Sheets.
SkyGiraffe has open-sourced the code, which can be accessed via GitHub.
Hecht said, "Optimizing business processes in the mobile era depends on secure, scalable data access for applications. SkyGiraffe's platform provides customers with a competitive advantage in solving this issue to execute on their mobility strategies at unprecedented speed and scale."
