The article reports on the $3 million received by Sendio in a second funding round led by Athenian Venture Partners. The funding brought the five-year-old e-mail security startup's funding total to $9 million. The investment is at least the second venture capital (VC) cash injection of an enterprise security company in the last few weeks. Irvine, California-based Sendio markets an email security appliance that attempts to take the guesswork out of spam filtering. The company said it will devote much of the new funding to sales and marketing.
