Harris Corporation, Sendmail to Create Email, Messaging Cloud

Harris Corporation, Sendmail to Create Email, Messaging Cloud - top government contractors - best government contracting eventHarris Corporation announced today its agreement with Sendmail, Inc. to jointly develop and launch an email and messaging cloud service for commercial enterprises and government organizations.

Using Sendmail’s Sentrion Message Processing platform and Harris’ Trusted Enterprise Cloud and Cyber Integration Center, the two companies have designed an enterprise-grade email and cloud infrastructure secure and reliable enough for mission critical workflows.

“In today's online world, when your email stops working so does your business,” said Rich Plane, head of solution development and delivery for Harris’ cyber integrated solutions division. “While it makes sense to run email in the cloud, it is a mistake to run email in a cloud you can't trust.”

According to Harris, system configurations and on-boarding procedures have been finalized for their cloud email service and are working with a number of large commercial organizations and federal agencies on deployments.

“Security, computer-generated email systems, multiple encryption requirements, regulatory compliance, policy enforcement, deep content scanning, data loss prevention and high-volume outbound mail are but a few of the challenges enterprises face when moving email to the cloud,” said Jim Seaman, vice president of federal and systems integrators for Sendmail. “The joint Sendmail Harris messaging cloud system provides a platform and a toolkit for enterprises to overcome these challenges and deploy an email system they can trust.”
