Zumigo raises $6M to expand secure payment transactions

Zumigo Corporation has announced it has closed $6 million in Series B financing led by new investor Intel Capital.

The funding will be used to expand its business operations and accelerate new product development and customer roll-outs to meet growing global demand, including investments in sales and marketing.

Hank Skorny, Vice President and General Manger of Intel Services, said: “In an increasingly connected world, mobile, cloud, security, location and commerce are fundamental to any services strategy, with their best-in-class commerce fraud solution, we see Zumigo as a leader in this space.”
