NewSpring, a family of private equity funds providing growth and expansion capital, announced today that NewSpring Growth, the Firm’s dedicated growth and expansion stage fund, has led an $18 million investment into TenFour. Proceeds will be used to accelerate growth through continued investment in sales and marketing and product development.
Founded in 1998, TenFour operates the first IT network infrastructure utility, a model that is transforming the industry and positions IT organizations to drive their digital vision and prosper in today’s Digital Age. TenFour virtualizes all IT network infrastructures in the global enterprise beyond compute and storage—from routers, switches, and firewalls to phones, WiFi, cameras, and IoT devices. The Company is advancing new approaches to deliver and consume IT that drive business value, enhancing agility, reliability, performance, and security at lower cost. TenFour also provides transitional network monitoring, repair, and administration services to facilitate the evolution from traditional models to a virtualized infrastructure model. The Company is headquartered in Morristown, NJ.
“We are extremely pleased to have the support and expertise of NewSpring. They share our vision for the future of the IT industry and the consumption model that will dominate the market in the next five years. Their investment allows us to build on our market reputation for delivering frictionless IT infrastructure and accelerates growth and adoption of TenFour’s model so that more enterprises can take advantage of these advancements in the market,” said Bruce Flitcroft, Founder and CEO of TenFour.
“TenFour has developed a truly unique end-to-end solution for delivering IT Network Infrastructure and is quickly emerging as a leader in a large, thriving industry,” said Brian Kim, NewSpring Principal. “Customers have been thrilled with the Company’s ability to simplify and improve their IT network performance and we’re excited to be working with Bruce and the team as they continue to build on that reputation.”
As part of the transaction, Brian Kim will join the TenFour Board of Directors.

It is a less complicated model for IT that positions IT leaders to redefine their resources and drive business priorities.
