Secure file sharing tool maker Lockbox has closed a $2.5 million round of financing to enable the company to execute its product roadmap, increase investment in sales and marketing, and expand its key sales, support and operations staff.

The round was led by new and existing investor groups from the United States, Australia and Asia.

On May 14, Lockbox announced the company’s entry into the U.S. market and launched the Lockbox Client Portal, a private and secure file-sharing product designed for accountants and other financial service businesses. Lockbox Client Portal was built to allow information to be shared with multiple parties simultaneously for secure and private collaboration.

“Businesses that have stayed away from the cloud in the past are excited by the global opportunities that Lockbox technology has opened,” said Lockbox chief executive Peter Long. “The close of our seed round is another sign of our incredible momentum over the past few months—signing new partners, customers and expanding the business.”

This fall, Lockbox plans to launch an iPad and iPhone app, as well as other product enhancements.
