Zluri raises $10 million

SaaS management platform Zluri has raised $10 million in a Series A round of funding led by MassMutual Ventures with participation from existing investors, Endiya Partners and Kalaari Capital.

Founded in 2020, the San Francisco-based startup helps organizations discover, manage, optimize, and automate their SaaS applications from a single dashboard. For example, Zluri’s platform can monitor user usage, helping companies save money if they are paying for multiple licenses that aren’t being utilized. It can also help with discovery of SaaS applications – the startup claims to have the most comprehensive application discovery engine in the industry.

Zluri plans to use the capital to further strengthen its product’s capabilities, as well as growing its presence in core markets in Asia and North America.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mass Mutual Ventures as our new partner through this Series A funding. Over the last 12 months we have seen global adoption of SaaS Management Platforms increase at an accelerated pace. Our rapid growth in the category can be attributed to our product innovation and unparalleled customer support. We have made significant investments into our one-click automation engine, which helps IT Teams streamline and automate workflows across the organization thus helping them manage, optimize and secure their technology stacks effectively. We will continue our investments to extend our lead in this space and the current round of funding will help us further accelerate our global growth and product innovation.” – Ritish Reddy, cofounder, Zluri.
