Its clients include Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group and Japanese computer company Fujitsu Ltd.
Zerto raised $130 million to date, from investors including Menlo Park-based IVP (Institutional Venture Partners), Battery Ventures, USVP, and 83North.
Zerto employs 700 people, half of them in its Israeli research and development center, with additional offices in the U.K. and the Ukraine. The company is now in the process of setting up a support center currently being built in China.
