Cloud Networking Startup Pertino Secures $20M

Mar 7, 2013

Cloud Networking Startup Pertino Secures $20M March 7, 2013 Follow agoldfisher Pertino, which develops software for managing wide area networks over the cloud, has raised $20 million in a Series B round led by new investor Jafco Ventures, with Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners also participating. The company was founded in 2011 by a team, many of whom were formerly with networking appliance company Packeteer. Pertino raised nearly $9 million in a Series A deal from Norwest and Lightspeed in April 2012. PRESS RELEASE PERTINO RAISES $20 MILLION FOR ITS CLOUD NETWORK SERVICE First Mover in SDN-Powered Cloud Networking Will Use Funds to Expand Platform and Go-to-Market Strategy Los Gatos, Calif. – March 7, 2013 – Pertino, a company reinventing networking for the cloud era, today announced it has raised $20 million in Series B funding. New investor Jafco Ventures led the round with participation from existing investors, including Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners. After a successful limited availability launch last month that generated significant customer momentum, Pertino will use new funds to continue executing against its software-defined network (SDN) cloud platform vision and building out its go-to-market strategy. This latest round of funding brings Pertino’s total amount raised to $28.85 million. The investment from Jafco Ventures validates Pertino’s position as a leader in the movement to reinvent networking for the cloud era, and a first-mover in bringing SDN-powered wide-area networks (WANs) to the masses. Pertino joins Jafco’s impressive portfolio of cloud and network security companies such as Reputation.com, Huddle, FireEye, and Palo Alto Networks. “One of the things that attracted us to Pertino is the fact they have built a cloud-based solution leveraging the most innovative and disruptive technology to hit networking in a decade – SDN, and they’re delivering it in a practical and consumable way to an underserved global market,” said Jeb Miller, general partner at Jafco. “Disruptive technology and a massive global market opportunity, coupled with the pedigree and experience of the executive team makes Pertino an ideal portfolio company for us.” Globalization, the rise of cloud services, an increasingly mobile workforce, and the proliferation of mobile devices are trends that are all converging on small-to-medium businesses today. As a result, SMBs are becoming more dependent on WANs than ever before but the cost and complexity of traditional network technology is proving to be a barrier. With Pertino’s cloud network engine, businesses of any size can build a secure, cloud-based network in minutes with no hardware, expertise, or upfront investment required, enabling employees to connect to IT resources from anywhere in the world just as easily as they do in the office. “SMBs comprise almost half of IT spending worldwide, yet a significant number of these organizations struggle with having the resources to deploy new technology and applications,” said Craig Elliott, Pertino co-founder and CEO. “By leveraging the cloud and SDN technology to radically simplify networking, Pertino is poised to unlock a massive opportunity and Jafco’s SMB and business development experience in Asia will help us realize it.” Pertino announced limited availability of its cloud network engine service last month, after concluding a successful betaprogram within the Spiceworks IT community that resulted in over 250 customers deploying and testing their own Pertino cloud network. Since then, the number of deployed customers has grown to over 700. Now available worldwide, Pertino allows customers to build a free network for up to three members with three devices each, and then pay only $10 per member per month as they grow. Pertino previously raised an $8.85 million Series A round of funding co-led by Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners in April 2012. About Pertino Founded in 2011, Pertino has 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. However, traditional wide-area networks have not kept pace. Pertino’s revolutionary Cloud Network Engine enables any business to build a simple and secure cloud-based network that connects people and IT resources from anywhere on the planet. No new hardware. No expertise. No upfront investment. To achieve this breakthrough, Pertino has developed a software platform that combines the power and pervasiveness of the cloud with Software-defined Network (SDN) and network virtualization technology, and a social-inspired user management paradigm. The company is venture funded and headquartered in Los Gatos, California. For more information or to try Pertino for yourself, please visit pertino.com .
