Gizmox was founded in 2007 by a group of entrepreneurs with prior success in the development and marketing of infrastructure products, some from executive positions in Microsoft. The company aimed at empowering the standard internet browser in such a way it could support rich, data-intensive applications in standard environment (native HTML5 for example), without the need for client plug-in and with built-in security. Today, with the expected shift of enterprises from local PC deployment to the post PC era, Gizmox presents the safest, shortest and most efficient path from local deployment to consuming those applications via the web on dynamic platforms such as the private and public cloud and via mobile devices or tablets.
Gizmox targets its unique patent pending solution to organizations that use data-intensive rich applications on a daily basis and need to allow remote, distributed access to their core business systems without compromising the data security and their original desktop richness user interface.
In order to allow simple and easy shift to Gizmox’s Visual WebGui platform, the company provides tools for creating new applications and/or for moving existing local client/server applications to secured HTML5 browser based applications.
Gizmox offers its core development tools with open source code and invites enterprise developers to download the tools and develop applications at their will. Since its inception Visual WebGui has achieved over 1,000,000 downloads and a remarkable number of over 35,000 applications are in production at first tier organizations such as SAP, IBM, Siemens, Visa, Sony, Xerox, Williams, Israel Aerospace Industry, Texas Instruments, banks, and government and military institutions. In addition, Hapoalim bank, Discount bank, Leumi card, Jerusalem bank, Maccabi HMO and many other major organizations in Israel are using VWG mobile platform for their secured-by-design consumer application accessibility.
The company has formed strategic alliances with Microsoft and Citrix which is also among Gizmox’s main investors. The alliance with Microsoft includes the addition of various Gizmox products in the Visual Studio marketplace, while the alliance with Citrix conveys a joint R&D for the future release of a new shared product line to be marketed by both Citrix and Gizmox.
The company operates out of its Israeli headquarters and its US office. Along with its several R&D supporting centers around the globe the company employs tens of people.
