Pertino is currently available on Windows, Mac, Linux (beta), and Android (beta) with network plans starting at 10 devices for $29/month, or $290 annually. Customers can change plans anytime, as they grow.

"The IT value-chain is rapidly shifting from hardware to cloud and software, allowing companies of all sizes to become more agile, competitive and adaptive to social and economic trends that affect their business," said Todd Krautkremer, vice president of marketing for Pertino. "Being selected as a finalist for the Tech Trailblazers awards underscores the role that software-defined and cloud-based networks and Pertino will play in shaping a more secure and productive future for SMB organizations."

Tech Trailblazers is a global awards program recognizing technological and commercial innovation and entrepreneurial excellence. Pertino was named as a finalist in the networking category alongside Aryaka, Qwilt, Racktivity and StackDriver. The winners will be determined by public voting and a judging panel, with voting set to begin in early December.
