Managed Service Complements Sentrion Message Processing Infrastructure Solutions

EMERYVILLE, California & London, UK, 17th March, 2009 – Sendmail, Inc., the leading provider of reliable and secure email and messaging infrastructures, today announced the availability of its new managed email infrastructure services with the introduction of Sendmail Sentrion® Cloud Services™. Sentrion Cloud Services provides enterprise customers with more choice, agility, control and protection by offering a cost-effective SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution to filter inbound emails for spam and viruses before they are managed and regulated by the on-premises messaging infrastructure solutions. Sendmail’s on-premises Sentrion Message Processors provide the more critical email-backbone functions such as data loss prevention, directory-driven message routing and content policy enforcement with proven high return-on-investment for large enterprises.

Enterprise customers are moving to a hybrid message processing architecture with a hosted approach to email filtering because of the significant cost savings realised by pushing commodity functions to the cloud. Just as important is the continued need to manage higher value complex message routing, delivery and content policy requirements on-premises. Messages caught by outbound or internal content controls typically should not leave the private network. The addition of Sentrion Cloud Services to Sendmail’s portfolio of messaging infrastructure solutions provides enterprise customers the choice to use Sentrion Message Processor appliances for inbound spam protection and their internal policy management layer, or the ability to architect a hybrid-hosted solution that meets their specific requirements.

Sentrion Cloud Services provides businesses an immediate return on investment by reducing the infrastructure required for managing spam on-premises. The savings are realised by requiring fewer servers at the gateway to accept inbound mail and by reducing data centre footprint, network traffic, storage costs and energy consumption.

“The current economic realities and industry shifts are causing enterprise customers to re-think their approach to managing their email infrastructure,” said Stephanie Nevin, vice president of marketing, Sendmail. “By pushing the commodity filtering function to the cloud, businesses can reduce their overall operating expenses and focus their attention on the mission-critical internal email infrastructure to ensure that the important policy and routing requirements for corporate governance, regulatory compliance and data leak prevention are handled safely on-premises.”

Sentrion Cloud Services gives enterprise customers the same level of protection from spam and viruses as the Sentrion MP™ (Message Processor) hard appliance, the Sentrion MPQ™ (Quantum Message Processor) Blade Server appliance, and the Sentrion MPV™ (Virtual Message Processor) that runs as a virtual appliance on VMWare.
