EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sendmail, Inc. announced today the availability of email management and security products designed to assist enterprises with the smooth and secure transition of their email systems to cloud-based services as well as address the ongoing security, compliance, and IT risk management challenges posed by business email in the cloud over time.

"More enterprises are beginning to evaluate the various cloud email systems and services that are available, such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps for Business, including Gmail," said Gregory Shapiro, VP, Cloud Enablement & CTO. "The potential cost savings benefits for migrating on-premises IT solutions to the cloud are clear, but for larger globally distributed organizations, there are a myriad of security, compliance and management risks that require hybrid email management solutions that work hand-in-hand with the cloud-based email service."

According to Gartner Research*, "many organizations are contemplating moving email to the cloud, largely based on the assumption that cloud email is inexpensive, mature and widespread.  The decision to move email to the cloud, however, is far more nuanced and complex than it might initially appear." Sendmail's new Sentrion Cloud Applications and Services were specifically designed to address the various challenges of cloud-based email regardless of configuration.
