We have two speakers this month!
Mat Thomas - Kerio
Kerio are mostly known in the Small Business Specialist Community for their email server – Kerio Connect but they also have firewall, online collaboration and VOIP products.
Matt will spend some time introducing Kerio and their products to the group before giving a technical demonstration of a product of the groups choice.
Kerio Technologies, Inc. first entered the Internet security market in 1997 with its popular and well-respected WinRoute Pro product family. WinRoute's favorable reputation for ease of use, reliability and great performance propelled the company's initial success. Throughout its history, WinRoute has received recognition from worldwide IT press, industry experts and technology web portals, as a trustworthy yet affordable alternative to firewall/router appliances.
Kerio Connect is an all-in-one messaging and collaboration server, combining email, calendaring and collaboration features with integrated anti-virus, powerful anti-spam, built-in archiving, automated backup and an easy to use administrative interface.
Kerio Control, a unified threat management solution, delivers comprehensive protection and maximum performance for networks ranging from simple to complex. Multi-faceted security, including certified firewall, intrusion prevention, VPN services, Anti-virus, and Web Filter, protects the network from a wide array of evolving threats. Kerio Control offers more hardware scalability than traditional security appliances, and gives administrators the option to install on Windows, as a Software Appliance for bare metal, or in virtualised deployments.
Kerio Operator is an IP PBX system tailored for small and medium sized businesses. Kerio Operator simplifies deployment and integration of a phone system into an existing IT environment, while providing ease of use for both the client and the administrator.
