Cloud SDN Provider Pertino Enters General Availability
Microsoft’s public cloud platform Azure continues to add functionality for Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Software defined networking provider Pertino has entered into General Availability worldwide. Pertino’s Cloud Network Engine replaces traditional VPN and network appliances with cloud-based services that can be deployed in a few clicks. Targeted to SMBs, the public beta launched early last year. The company landed more than 5,000 free and paid customers during that time.

“Our Cloud Network Engine has evolved significantly during public beta," said Craig Elliott, CEO and co-founder of Pertino. "Today we have a business-ready cloud networking service that reaches across four continents, supports all modern computing platforms with Android in beta and iOS on the way, and we’ve introduced the first set of apps for our AppScape network services app store.”

Pertino enables workforce mobility and the usage of personal devices for SMBs, by making secure, private networking within budgetary reach. Three devices are free, with paid plans starting at $29 a month. The company raised a $20 million Series B in March of last year.

The company has also hired two executives Bharath Rangarajan as vice president of product and Ritch Haselden as vice president of inside sales. “Bharath and Ritch bring proven talents that will be instrumental to building on our early product leadership in SDN-powered cloud networking and revving-up sales,” said Elliott.
