ObserveIT's software enables companies to monitor employee and user activity, perform behavioral analytics, enforce policies, and conduct digital forensics. Originally founded in Israel in 2006 by Gaby Friedlander and Avi Amos, ObserveIT is currently headquartered in Boston. The company's main research and development center in Tel Aviv employs 70 of the company's 150 employees. The company has clients in almost 90 countries, according to its statements.



The company intends to use the funding for product development, to bolster up its sales and marketing team, and also to hire additional employees for its Israeli center. Due to the expected increase in employees, the company intends to move its local offices in October to Alon Towers, a high-rise in central Tel Aviv.
