Zerto, setting the standard for protection, recovery and migration of data in cloud and virtualized data centers, today announced it has secured a $50 million Series E financing led by IVP and has achieved a fourth consecutive year of 100%+ sales growth.

The round also included participation from all current investors: 83North, Battery Ventures, Harmony Partners, RTP Ventures, U.S. Venture Partners, and Mark Leslie who also serves on Zerto's Board of Directors. Sandy Miller, General Partner from IVP, will serve as an Observer on the Board of Directors.

The round brings Zerto's total financing to over $110 million, and will allow Zerto to continue the momentum it has built with 2,200 customers spanning financial services, healthcare, insurance, legal and education, and a channel network of 250 cloud service providers and 900 resellers.

Zerto's global success is evidenced by 2015 highlights including an award-winning product launch, new geo penetration, key technology partnership activities, and industry and business accolades:

"Zerto's business growth, strong team, execution track record, and proven ability to address a market need by simplifying data center operations motivated IVP to add Zerto to our portfolio. We look forward to supporting the ongoing success of Zerto as they redefine the business continuity market as being far more than an IT insurance policy, but one that opens many doors for their customers' future growth." -- Sandy Miller, General Partner, IVP

"IVP's success stories are a veritable ‘who's who' in the technology and digital sectors, and we are honored to become part of their rich heritage of marketplace disruptors. We look forward to executing on our singular vision of creating data center products that transform IT in ways that help them pursue new opportunities for business success." - Ziv Kedem, CEO, Zerto
