Virtual Appliance Benefits

Sendio Virtual Edition is ideal for companies that have adopted or are moving to a VMware environment. All of the benefits of virtualization can be realized with Sendio’s virtual appliance including:

  • Quick setup — a virtual appliance deploys in just minutes by simply loading into your VMware environment, including VMware Server or VMware Infrastructure.
  • Cost savings related to infrastructure simplification: Reduced hardware, power, cooling, and space requirements.
  • Reliability, backup and disaster recovery: Snapshots of an entire environment can be easily taken and restored at any time leveraging VMware’s infrastructure management tools.
  • Deployment and scalability: New virtual servers can be rapidly deployed on existing hardware.
  • Change management: New versions and configuration changes can be tested in a zero-risk environment using a snapshot of the production environment.

Sendio Virtual Edition™ Deployment Guidelines

The benefits of Sendio:

  • Sendio is the first line of email defense. Unwanted emails never hit your mail server.
  • No annoying Junk emails.
  • Users maximize day-to-day productivity because they only receive emails from members of their email community and no others.
  • No annoying false positives. Messages are never held or quarantined due to elaborate message content filters.
  • Full Anti-virus protection

How Sendio email protection works

  • Inbound email for your domain is cut over to Sendio via a DNS MX record change.
  • Outbound email is routed via a Smarthost or relay setting in your mail server through Sendio and out to the Internet.
  • A user’s email community self-manages via simple automatic invitations to new inbound senders who can easily join your community.
  • Users and Administrators can also manually import email community members (customers, suppliers, etc.) to Sendio from CRM systems and other contact databases.
  • Automated senders of phishing, malware, and spam will never get added to a user’s email community.
  • When a user sends an outbound message through Sendio those recipient email addresses are automatically added to the user’s email community.
  • Anti-spoofing technology (DKIM, SPF) provides extra protection against malicious senders to your domain.
  • Sendio always keeps an up to date snapshot of valid email addresses for your organization via an LDAP sync to your onsite LDAP directory.
