LONDON, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
MindLink, leading provider of secure Chat Enabled Collaboration (CEC) tools has announced it raised US$1million in its recent funding round.
The London-based software firm which delivers highly secure messaging & collaboration tools for global enterprises will use the funding, drawn from both existing as well as new investors, to boost its aggressive expansion plans predominantly within the Financial Services vertical and beyond.
Justin Forrest, MindLink CEO says: "In the last quarter alone, MindLink has signed up two of the world's largest investment banks as well as a number of smaller financial services firms who will be using MindLink to collaborate and share sensitive and confidential financial information, safe in the knowledge that it is fully compliant and secure. We are also enjoying considerable success within the legal community and most recently began working with one of the leading cyber security firms."
The new funding will help MindLink to significantly accelerate its business growth development plans. This will be delivered via more extensive, worldwide sales & marketing activities, improved support of its growing global customer base, greater investment in building a strong reseller channel and further expanding its engineering capabilities to stay ahead of client and market needs.
Justin Forrest, MindLink CEO continues: "MindLink has a clear head start in terms of experience in the collaboration & chat space and the profile of our blue chip clients. It is more than just 'team messaging', it is about connecting the entire firm (and that can be thousands of users) in an efficient, secure & compliant manner. It is now time that we take MindLink to the next level. We have a great team in place and collectively we are committed to cementing our leadership position as one of the most secure and advanced messaging applications available on the market today. Watch this space."

MindLink is way ahead of the competition with very unique functionality, and indeed the appetite and acceptance of the technology has never been greater."
