Pertino Raises $20 Million

Pertino, the start-up that figures its software-defined WANs can reinvent cloud-era networking for the masses, has raised $20 million in B series funding led by new investor Jafco Ventures with existing investors Norwest Venture Partners and Lightspeed Venture Partners kicking in.
The new round brings Pertino’s total VC take to $28.85 million and may take it through to break-even.
The company means to use the new money to execute against its SDN cloud platform vision and build out its go-to-market strategy.
Pertino’s widgetry has been in limited availability since its launch last month. Jafco thinks Pertino, which is focused on SMBs, is delivering a disruptive technology in a practical and consumable way to an underserved global market.
