Sendle, the most affordable delivery service built for small business, has beefed up its portfolio of shipping services designed to help small businesses succeed with the launch of Sendle Three-Day Guaranteed. This new, expedited shipping service offers small businesses a reliable, cheaper option to United Parcel Service (UPS) for fast, national package delivery. Proving that affordable shipping does not have to be slow, small businesses throughout the U.S. can now take advantage of Sendle’s expansive national network for even more efficient package deliveries that save them more time and money.
With Sendle Three-Day Guaranteed, all small businesses can now get their goods picked up from their doorstep and delivered in three business days or less to wherever they need to go in the U.S. – with no extra fees or contracts. There is also no minimum pick-up quantity required. If a Sendle package isn’t delivered within three business days, Sendle will refund the small business the cost of the delivery – no questions asked. The Sendle Three-Day Guaranteed service includes tracking and $150 cover, and is 100% carbon-neutral at no extra cost.
“Small businesses deserve more choice and fairer pricing when it comes to parcel delivery. That’s why Sendle is leading the charge to shake up the logistics space by delivering quick, reliable, and cheaper shipping services tailored specifically for small business. Today, we are proud to introduce a game-changing alternative to UPS that is guaranteed to get goods delivered in three days or less, at an unbeatable price,” says James Chin Moody, Sendle CEO and co-founder. “We are on a mission to liberate small businesses from the burdens of logistics, allowing them to focus on what truly matters. By unlocking precious time while saving them some money, we’re empowering small businesses to thrive. This is just the beginning – you can expect to see even greater innovations from us as we relentlessly fight for the success of small businesses.”
Complementing Sendle Saver, the company’s best value shipping option, and Sendle Preferred, which offers delivery in one to five days, the new Three-Day Guaranteed service provides the same, easy and reliable service Sendle’s small business customers have already come to love – and now at an even faster pace. Sendle handles the end-to-end journey of every parcel shipped, offering dedicated customer service by real people, as well as a powerful online dashboard where customers can track and reschedule their deliveries, and more.
“Brush Club operates in the sustainability sector and fast and reliable deliveries are integral elements of our brand promise. Customers value our commitment not just to their dental health, but also to the environment. A crucial part of that commitment is ensuring we deliver their sustainable dental kits in a timely and reliable manner,” says Santiago Martinez Oropeza, CEO and founder of Brush Club. “Sendle understands that small businesses like ours have to work fast. And now, with their Three-Day Guaranteed service, we can promise delivery times and keep them, and that builds trust with customers, sets us apart in a competitive market, and greatly enhances our customer retention.”
Small businesses can sign up for fast, more affordable shipping now
Sendle Three-Day Guaranteed starts at $4.59 and small businesses in the U.S. can immediately sign up and start using the service at sendle.com. “Sendle’s new Three-Day Guaranteed Service will benefit us and our customers – especially with our refill option taking off,” says Yvette Nathalie Brown, celebrity tea tender and founder of Tshikovi Tea House. “Our customers can refill their orders by sending their canisters back to us, and the sooner we get them back, the sooner we can refill them. Faster and more affordable shipping means our customers won’t run out of their favorite teas and our business can continue to grow with increased customer retention.”
The new Sendle Three-Day Guaranteed service is also available as an option to shipping and e-commerce platforms through Sendle’s new Digital Partner Program (DPP) that was also announced today. More information about Sendle’s new DPP can be found online.

Safe Security, the AI-Driven Cyber Risk Management company, announced today that it has joined the Center for Threat-Informed Defense (Center), operated by MITRE Engenuity, as a Research Sponsor. This partnership will enhance the organization's ability to develop resources to protect against cyberattacks through its unique approach to public interest collaborative research and development (R&D).
"We are proud to announce our partnership with the Center as a research sponsor and are excited to share our expertise to drive cybersecurity innovation," said Vidit Baxi CISO and Co-founder at Safe Security. "The Center promotes the co-development of new tools, techniques, and strategies to address challenges in today's highly vulnerable ecosystem. This program allows us to contribute and support global community engagement efforts in understanding and communicating cyber risk. Alongside industry members, we can better articulate and mitigate cyber risks, prioritize specific threat-informed actions to prevent breaches, ultimately contributing to the advancement and improvement of cyber defense."
In 2019, MITRE Engenuity was established as a subsidiary of the MITRE Corporation amid a noticeable shift in R&D investments moving towards the private sector. Recognizing that vital industry investments may become overwhelmed in the conceptual phase without proper guidance, the subsidiary aims to ensure effective implementation through nurturing and radical collaboration. Operating within the dynamic cybersecurity landscape, MITRE Engenuity brings together experts, organizations, and investors in a non-competitive environment to foster generational impact for the public good.
SAFE's research collaboration will build on the MITRE ATT&CK® framework, forming the foundation for a threat-informed defense approach to counter the latest techniques leveraged by today's most advanced threat actors. The Center also works to provide defenders with a deep understanding of adversary tradecraft and advances in developing countermeasures to prevent, detect, and mitigate modern threats by identifying trends in attacker behavior that can inform the threat intelligence community.
Using its AI-fueled cyber risk cloud of clouds platform for predicting and preventing cyber breaches, SAFE evaluates the efficacy of cyber controls by automatically mapping common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) and cyber controls across the kill chain using the MITRE ATT&CK and D3FEND frameworks. This approach enables CISOs to visualize and assess cybersecurity. Predictive data models co-developed with MIT empower CISOs to translate the bits and bytes of cyber risk into dollars and cents, allowing them to communicate these risks to the board effectively and all risk stakeholders.
SAFE delivers a data-driven, real-time solution for measuring, managing, and mitigating cyber risk. It gives organizations an aggregated view of enterprise security risk by collating disparate cyber signals for single visibility across their attack surface, technology, people, and third parties. SAFE is dedicated to working with the Center in its continuous efforts to make meaningful contributions to the cybersecurity community, enabling organizations to move from a reactive state to a predictive posture to understand the likelihood of different cyber risk scenarios.
"The Center for Threat-Informed Defense serves as a hub for top-tier security teams worldwide to collaborate on identifying and resolving the most pressing challenges confronting cyber defenders," said Jonathan Baker, Co-Founder and Director of the Center for Threat-Informed Defense. "We are thrilled to have Safe Security on board as we strengthen our collective understanding of adversary behaviors and our ability to thwart cyber attacks."
About The Center for Threat-Informed Defense
The Center is a non-profit, privately funded research and development organization operated by MITRE Engenuity. The center's mission is to advance the state of the art and the state of the practice in threat-informed defense globally. Comprised of participant organizations from around the globe with highly sophisticated security teams, the center builds on MITRE ATT&CK, an important foundation for threat-informed defense used by security teams and vendors in their enterprise security operations. Because the center operates for the public good, outputs of its research and development are available publicly and for the benefit of all.

Lookout, Inc., the endpoint-to-cloud security company, today announced new Windows and macOS endpoint agents for its Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution, Lookout Secure Private Access, that facilitate the full replacement of overextended virtual private networks (VPNs) with cloud-delivered security. Businesses can now fully realize the benefits of a zero trust architecture while dramatically simplifying network design. According to Gartner, at least 70% of new remote access deployments will be served mainly by ZTNA instead of VPN services by 2025 – up from less than 10% at the end of 2021.1
Early ZTNA products offer only limited traffic forwarding capabilities. Legacy VPN solutions, on the other hand, support an expansive set of protocols and complex use cases, making full VPN replacement impractical in many enterprise environments. IT security teams are often forced to run both ZTNA and VPN architectures simultaneously in support of certain legacy applications, such as VoIP phones. This constraint leads to a complex network design that's costly to operate and maintain.
Lookout's new endpoint agents for Windows and macOS facilitate the full transition to zero trust architecture with support for traffic steering at both the network and application levels. When deployed in conjunction with cloud-delivered Lookout Secure Private Access, IT security teams can now fully replace the myriad of use cases supported by legacy VPNs, taking full advantage of the benefits a Zero Trust Architecture offers.
The core principle behind Zero Trust is “never trust, always verify.” All users and devices are considered potential threats and must be continuously verified and restricted to only the resources needed to complete a required task. VPNs, on the other hand, take an all-or-nothing approach to connectivity by allowing users to authenticate only once and roam freely throughout the network thereafter. This full network-level access sets the stage for lateral attacks. If a bad actor, or malware, can make it past the VPN, they have full access to all applications and sensitive data on the corporate network.
Lookout Secure Private Access with Windows and macOS endpoint agents provide important security benefits, including:
Unparalleled visibility into private application traffic: IT security teams can better understand how their users interact with private applications, with visibility up and including actual data accessed.
Advanced Data security: The agent helps facilitate the use of advanced data security controls for private enterprise apps, including our data loss prevention (DLP) and enterprise digital rights management (EDRM).
Granular traffic steering to meet heterogeneous environments: The agent can be configured to steer traffic to specific destinations, based on user, device, and location. This helps to ensure only authorized users have access to sensitive data.
Enhanced user experience with multi-tunnel traffic steering: The agent steers traffic to one of Lookout's many cloud-edge locations distributed worldwide, providing the shortest path between the user and the enterprise.
Highly available redundant multi-path routing: The agent leverages our globally distributed Cloud Security Platform to offer end users a highly available security service edge (SSE) experience by leveraging advanced path selection and routing algorithms.
Consistent zero-trust enforcement with integrated endpoint security: The agent continuously monitors endpoint posture when integrated with endpoint protection platforms (EPPs), OS security centers and other endpoint security products.
“For more than two decades, VPNs have been the go-to technology for enterprise remote access. While their effectiveness has declined as applications have shifted to the cloud, the alternatives have been limited because of the myriad of complex use cases they support," said Sundaram Lakshmanan, Chief Technology Officer, Lookout. "Now, with the introduction of Windows and macOS endpoint agents on our Cloud Security Platform, Lookout facilitates full VPN replacement while filling inherent security gaps in these legacy architectures."
Lookout, Inc. is the endpoint-to-cloud cybersecurity company that delivers zero trust security by reducing risk and protecting data wherever it goes, without boundaries or limits. Our unified, cloud-native platform safeguards digital information across devices, apps, networks and clouds and is as fluid and flexible as the modern digital world.
