Pushfor, a London, UK-based secure messaging and content sharing platform for businesses, raised £1.2m in pre-Series A funding.
Backers included NT Asset, c12 Ventures and Metdist Limited. In conjunction with the funding, Kenneth Ng and Stephen King will join the board at Pushfor.
The company intends to use the funds to expand into new markets – particularly North America, Asia and India, increase sales and marketing and develop its product roadmap.
Led by John Safa, founder, Pushfor has created a secure content sharing and instant messaging platform that pushes, controls and tracks the distribution of any content type or size, automatically showing that content to fit any device. Its patented technology ‘pushes’ information to users, letting them view the content without physically sending it to them. Security and viewing permissions can be applied along with geo-location tracking. Users have access to the content without the need of the authoring software on their device. Content can be removed by the originator at any time. If an unauthorized recipient tries to screenshot or download the content, viewing rights are pulled, so it can no longer be viewed.
According to a note, Pushfor will be undertaking a Series A funding round in Q1 2017.
