Kerio Technologies UK, a leading provider of Internet security and messaging software for small to medium-sized businesses, has recently launched Kerio WinRoute Firewall 6.1 and Kerio MailServer 6.1. Both popular products have been further developed thanks to feedback from partners and customers.
With Kerio WinRoute Firewall 6.1, the new integrated Clientless SSL VPN allows remote employees and business travellers to access internal company file servers using only an Internet browser. Users can browse the file directory, upload and download files and create directories. With the built-in McAfee Anti-Virus option, Kerio WinRoute Firewall 6.1 also checks every file being transferred over Clientless SSL VPN for viruses.
Kerio MailServer 6.1 adds Sender Policy Framework (SPF) email domain authentication and a dual anti-virus scanning option to its existing arsenal of virus and spam-fighting tools. The new Spam Repellent feature effectively fights off 60% to 70% of spam and viruses before they reach the mail server by inserting a delay in the SMTP handshake, which causes a virus or spam-sending zombie to give up the connection attempt.
Kerio MailServer also simplifies email, contact and group calendar management to provide improved collaboration. It is the mail server of choice for many smaller companies looking to use a secure alternative to the other groupware offerings on Windows, such as Microsoft Exchange. Kerio MailServer 6.1 reinforces its commitment to Mac OS X users with support for Tiger and the addition of synchronisation with Apples Address Book and iCal applications, as well as improved integration with Microsofts Entourage groupware client.
Mahmood Chaudhri from the London based reseller, Datrix, confirms Kerio MailServer provides businesses with all the features they require, on the operating system of their choice and all at a more competitive price. We have recently tested Kerio MailServer 6.1 and as we would expect from Kerio, the functionality and look and feel just keeps on improving.
Joe Weisz adds, Many resellers are now realising that they can wrap their services around these popular products, so there is a great profit generating opportunity.
