May 2009 by Marc Jacob
Sendmail, Inc. announced a newly-published Butler Group Technology Audit has commended its Sentrion processor product line for offering maximum flexibility to organizations. The highly-regarded European analyst firm concluded that Sendmail Sentrion message Processors are solutions that are worthy of a closer examination.
Of the many product functions highlighted in the report, Butler lays particular emphasis on the benefits of Sendmail’s three protection layer approach: first an external protection layer to stop unwanted mail, accept valid mail as well as provide simple routing and delivery; then an internal policy layer to inspect messages and provide data leakage protection; and, finally, a management layer for internal policy enforcement and message routing.
“By contrast to many of its competitors, Sendmail Sentrion Message Processors provide features across a wide range of functionality,” said senior research analyst Sue Clarke, author of the report. “In supplying its appliances in a number of configurations, Sendmail provides maximum flexibility to organisations, enabling them to select the option that is most appropriate to their requirements.
Its policy enforcement capabilities make it an ideal solution for organisations in regulated industries that have strict compliance requirements,” she added.
The Technology Audit highlights the benefits of using Sentrion solutions for large enterprises that have multiple e-mail systems. Sendmail takes a holistic view of the e-mail infrastructure which enables enterprises to streamline and modernize complex legacy messaging infrastructures at both the external and internal layers.
“It is a privilege to be recognized by a leading analyst firm like Butler Group,” said Ian Emery, VP sales EMEA for Sendmail. “Our sales growth, which has doubled over the past 24 months, continues to be extraordinary given the current economic climate demonstrating how our customers really appreciate our value proposition of high return-on-investment through modernization of messaging policy, routing and delivery infrastructures.”
