Sendmail releases new version of message processing platform

Allows enterprises to create SMTP backbone with a hybrid infrastructure using hard appliances, virtual appliances, blade servers and cloud services

By CBR Staff Writer

Sendmail has released a new version of Sentrion Message Processing Engine – Sentrion MPE 4.0, which are available in virtual appliance (Sentrion MPV), hard appliance (Sentrion MP), blade server (Sentrion MPQ), and as a SaaS (Sentrion Cloud Services).

The new message processing engine is developed by combining a new centralised interface framework with optimised reporting and monitoring which is expected to help enterprise IT messaging teams to enhance their messaging infrastructures and improve the efficiencies of their SMTP email backbone.

According to Sendmail, the new message processing engine features and benefits include: centralised reporting and data aggregation with on-demand, template-driven reports, and customisable report execution; system and application monitoring of the entire MPE, including hardware, OS and all MPE components; and full configuration version control for tracking and managing all system configuration changes.

Sendmail said that the Sentrion is designed as a platform for SMTP email infrastructure which can be extended by adding email security applications from Sendmail or other third parties through the milter interface. Sentrion applications are used at the Gateway for inbound protection from spam, viruses, denial-of-service attacks, phishing attacks and other malware.

In addition to the inbound protection applications, Sentrion provides outbound protection applications for Data Loss Protection (DLP), regulatory compliance such as GLBA and HIPPA, and encryption. It can also be used internally for policy and directory-driven email routing, the company said.

Greg Shapiro, VP of engineering and CTO of Sendmail, said: “Sentrion’s architecture and numerous deployment options give enterprises the flexibility to create a highly efficient SMTP backbone with a hybrid infrastructure using hard appliances, virtual appliances, blade servers and cloud services.”
