Customers, Partners and Analysts Gathering to Discuss Growing Problem of Machine-Generated, Rogue Email and More

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sendmail customers and prospects have less than a month to register for Sendmail's annual International Messaging Infrastructure Summit being held in Washington, DC, November 8-9, 2012.

"This year's summit promises to be one of crucial importance for large, regulated and government organizations with aging messaging infrastructures—especially those that are looking to move to the cloud," said Sendmail President & CEO Glen Vondrick. "Reigning large among our discussions will be the quietly growing epidemic of email-enabled applications that have already begun to bring organizational communications and systems to a stand-still when not properly addressed."

The problem of machine-generated email, which Sendmail estimates makes up half of all email, was highlighted in a new email-to-cloud migration survey commissioned by Sendmail and conducted by Osterman Research. In it, nearly half of all large organizations report having more than 500 of such applications and systems generating customer care, system monitoring utilities, scheduled batch jobs and other emailed messages. These large build-ups of email-generating applications are creating critical security, compliance and other risks—including total shut-down of communications and business processes—that can rear their head at anytime, but especially during poorly planned cloud migrations.

Presenters at Sendmail's International Messaging Infrastructure Summit will include Sendmail messaging experts, customers, partners and a keynote by Michael Osterman of Osterman Research.

The International Messaging Infrastructure Summit 2012 will be held at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center, Washington, DC. Click here to register and learn more about the conference.
