Auvik, founded by Morin, Alex Hoff, and David Yach, develops cloud-centric software that allows MSPs and IT professionals to manage third-party networking hardware from Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and numerous other companies.
Auvik originally positioned its software for MSPs, but the company has expanded its base to all types of IT teams — including corporate IT departments. The company previously raised $15.6 million in Series C funding in May 2018.
In a prepared statement about the Great Hill investment, Auvik’s Morin said:
“Network management should be easier. That has been Auvik’s rallying cry since 2011 when we set out on a quest to give IT professionals, and the organizations they support, something better – something faster and easier. By partnering with Great Hill Partners, a growth investor with deep domain experience and expertise, and our continuing investor Celtic House Venture Partners, we are confident that we will be able to accelerate our impact and bring reliable IT solutions to IT professionals everywhere.”
Added Drew Loucks, a managing director at Great Hill Partners:
“Auvik has a truly innovative approach to ITOps and has developed powerful software that IT teams not only enjoy using, but is essential to their operations. We have been very impressed with the company’s customer satisfaction rating and reputation and we believe the team is well positioned to capture a significant portion of the evolving market moving forward.”
