Founded in 2007, Gizmox is a company founded by former Microsoft executives. Gizmox aims to empower the standard Internet browser so that it can support rich, data-intensive applications in a standard environment without the need for client plug-ins and built-in security. Gizmox helps companies create mobile apps using HTML5. The company has raised $7.5 million in funding and has appointed Eugene Kuznetsov as their CEO.
Citrix has bought Zenprise for an undisclosed amount. Citrix will integrate Zenprise into their mobile suite of products which include GoToMeeting, ShareFile, and Podio. Since many customers are now bringing their own devices to work, Citrix is able to use Zenprise to connect employees through one common platform. This way employees can keep all of their devices, apps, and data in one place.
Today Citrix announced their investments in Graymatics and Gizmox. Graymatics is a cloud platform that does content-based for video and digital media. Gizmox is the developer of Visual WebGui, a platform for mobile and cloud delivery.
