Pertino Networks

CEO: Craig Elliott

Pertino in September 2012 confirmed plans to release SDN technology that lets small businesses essentially build their own networks in the cloud. Todd Krautkremer, vice president of marketing, said that having no local IT infrastructure -- that is, having all or almost all of a customer's critical IT infrastructure in the cloud -- is immensely appealing to startups, which is why the company is targeting the 10-to-250 user segment.
