Founded in 2011, Pertino had an inspired vision for reinventing networking for the cloud era, and in the process, being a catalyst for democratizing IT for small-to-medium businesses. Globalization, cloud-enabled IT, and growing demand for always-connected people, devices, and things is affecting businesses of all sizes -- making the "outside network" as critical as the inside one. Pertino is a revolutionary cloud network engine that enables any business to build a simple and secure cloud-based network in minutes that connects people and IT resources from anywhere on the planet. Since Pertino is delivered as a subscription-based service, there is no hardware or upfront investment required. To achieve this breakthrough, Pertino's software platform combines the power and pervasiveness of the cloud with Software-defined Network (SDN) and virtualization technology, and a social-inspired user management paradigm. The company is headquartered in Los Gatos, Calif. and is funded by Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
