AppSense raises $70m investment from Goldman

UK technology firm AppSense has raised $70m (£43m) in investment from Goldman Sachs.

Pete Perrone, a managing director at Goldman Sachs, will join the company’s board of directors as part of the deal.

AppSense is the market leader in “desktop virtualisation,” a technology that allows users to easily multi-task between devices, facilitating working from home or over multiple offices. It also allows cost reduction for enterprise use.

Perrone said: “With the increased mobility of the workforce and the need to be able to access information from any device, Goldman Sachs sees a clear demand for user virtualisation solutions.

“AppSense’s strong customer traction, history of innovative solutions in desktop computing, and the record growth it has experienced over the past two years further solidified our decision to invest in the company.”
