Pinup: Pertino Brings Cloud Networks To Small Businesses

Computing hardware is expensive. No matter what type of virtual activities you are involved in, shelling out money for the hardware side of things has always been part of the process of getting things working successfully. Having powerful software is definitely a good thing; however, without the hardware to run it on, it is about as useful as a trapdoor on a lifeboat.

However, cloud-startup, Pertino, is set to change all of that.

Pertino was first launched in September of 2011 and is located in Los Gatos, CA. Pertino was founded by Craig Elliott, former Apple executive, Scott Hankins, former Director of Engineering at Blue Coat Systems, Andrew Mastracci, Architect and Michael Cartsonis, who has since left for employment with Contrast Security. Pertino has raised close to $30 million, from venture firms like Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners.

As Craig Elliott, CEO of Pertino Networks, puts it “The cloud and ‘as-a-service’ delivery models have transformed the IT landscape from a computing, storage and application perspective while, at the same time, the network paradigm has changed little. As a result, networks that once enabled businesses now constrain them when it comes to harnessing the disruptive capabilities and economies of the cloud. Pertino Networks was founded to radically simplify and alter the economics of business networks by bringing them into the cloud era.”

Pertino’s services are geared primarily towards smaller businesses that do not have the resources or manpower to develop and maintain the network they need with a hardware solution. Chief areas where this is seen are:

Connection

Pertino delivers fast, LAN-quality connections between all of the devices in your company. Not only are these connections completely hardware free, they also require no advanced configuration to set up. These connections are also fully equipped with 256-bit encryption, which ensures that all your data stays safe, no matter where it is stored.

Security

In addition to the aforementioned encryption, Pertino also includes several other layers of protection. One example of these layers is authentication at the device and user levels, which safeguards your network from access by unauthorized devices and people.

Optimize

Pertino uses only top-tier data centers, providing the same level of performance whether your employees are local or in another part of the world. Pertino also identifies where the accessing employee is and uses the closest data center to ensure no degradation of performance. Traffic itself is also optimized, which locks data into the shortest and clearest paths to and from the Pertino network.

Manage

Pertino’s cloud management console allows you complete access and control over your entire network, all in one easy-to-use location. No matter what type of activities you need to complete, such as update policies, manage users or just monitor performance, it can easily be performed by using the Pertino interface.

Having the capabilities of a powerful network is an excellent way for a small business to develop and grow their company in as short a time as possible. By using Pertino’s services, your company can enjoy the stellar growth possibilities all companies strive for.
