Sendio Revamps Partner Program

Irvine-based Sendio, which develops email security appliances, said today that the firm is restructuring its partner program in an attempt to expand its channel. The firm said it has switched over to a tiered program, which will reward its top partners with dedicated engineering support, deployment support, quarterly onsite visits, and a seat on the firm's advisory board. Sendio develops email appliances which require human confirmation--sender verification--before delivering an email from a new email sender, which reduces the amount of spam sent to email users. The firm is venture backed by Athenian Venture Partners, and also included Vicente Capital Partners, Shepherd Ventures and Momentum Venture Management, and raised a $3.0M funding round last month.
