Sendmail Extends Sales Distribution to Latin America and the Caribbean

Company Partners with CLAdirect to Increase Sales in the Growing Region

EMERYVILLE, Calif.--()--Sendmail, Inc., the leading provider of reliable and secure email and messaging infrastructures, today announced it has signed CLAdirect, a proven distributor of IP networking solutions in Latin America and the Caribbean, as a sales distribution partner for the region. Effective immediately, Sendmail’s suite of hard appliance Sentrion® Message Processors and its recently announced Sentrion® Cloud Services™ solution will be available to enterprise customers in the fast growing region via CLAdirect’s sales and support organization.

Latin America is experiencing rapid technology growth, with an Internet market increase of 30.9 percent in 2008, according to IDC. As enterprise organizations adapt to meet the new demands of the region, they are recognizing that the increase in managing enterprise messaging complexities makes early UNIX and open source initiatives ineffective and costly to maintain. Point solutions for anti-virus and anti-spam filtering are also not meeting the rapidly growing needs for the more critical email-backbone functions, such as data loss prevention, directory-driven message routing and content policy enforcement. CLAdirect’s distribution of Sendmail’s external protection and internal policy management solutions meets these evolving messaging needs by offering increased efficiencies with considerable return-on-investment due to the cost savings gained from modernizing the messaging infrastructure.

“We are experiencing increased demand for our unique messaging infrastructure products in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Stephanie Nevin, vice president of marketing and business development, Sendmail. “CLAdirect’s distinct market knowledge in the area and experience in selling complex technology solutions will help them be a successful channel partner for Sendmail in the region. This agreement is a natural extension of our global efforts to deliver appliance-based products, applications and services that enable Global 2000 and large enterprise corporations to modernize their messaging infrastructures.”

“We are pleased to join with Sendmail as their newest solution provider and channel partner in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Alberto Gross, president, CLAdirect. “Sendmail is a leader in the messaging industry and their team of Messaging Architects has invaluable insight into the pain points of enterprise corporations seeking to cut operating expenses, improve the agility of their messaging systems and gain significant return-on-investment. It’s a terrific opportunity to have a collective CLAdirect sales force represent Sendmail and we look forward to helping build their customer base in this advancing region.”
