Flexible Deployment & Administration
Whether using a bare metal ISO installation, virtualised infrastructure, or Kerio Control Box hardware appliance, all deployments easily scale as needs change. With simultaneous support for IPv4 and IPv6 traffic, organisations can securely begin preparations for the inevitable move to IPv6. VLAN support brings greater flexibility when managing large networks. IT admins have complete access to securely configure Kerio Control from anywhere via a web browser - even from an iPad.
A Complete Security Service
Kerio Control features integrated Sophos Anti-Virus and Kerio Control Web Filter as additional security services for maximum protection. Real-time operation of the integrated AV engine allows administrators to specify critical web and email protocols to be scanned, ensuring maximum security against the latest viruses, spyware, software vulnerabilities and other malicious code.
The Kerio Control Web Filter web content filtering service blocks 141 categories of web content that may have an adverse effect on both the productivity and security of the network. Administrators can prevent users from visiting websites that are known to contain malicious content, including viruses, spyware, Trojans, or web pages that engage in phishing attacks or online identity thefts. Kerio Control Web Filter is flexible enough to block users or groups from websites or categories during business hours, but can grant access during lunch for example.
Intrusion Prevention System
The IPS engine transparently monitors inbound and outbound network communication to identify suspicious activity. Protects servers behind the firewall from unauthorised connections, typically originated by an Internet bot or hacker trying to exploit an available service. Daily IPS Blacklist updates provide quick response to the rapidly evolving source of threats. Works in tandem with the firewall and content filtering capabilities to prevent malware on the network.
Network Analysis & Reporting
Kerio Control Statistics, the built-in statistics and reporting module, provides detailed statistical and graphical reports on employee internet usage activity. With access to on-demand online reports and automated daily, weekly or monthly email reports, IT and business managers can immediately uncover hidden productivity losses, security risks, or potential legal liability issues stemming from misuse of IT resources.
VPN Remote Access
Kerio Control VPN and IPsec VPN provide unlimited VPN tunnels for both site-to-site and client-to-site scenarios, and offers both persistent and on-demand modes with cross-platform flexibility. Connect multiple branch offices into a single manageable network and give remote workers a reliable secure tunnel with device native IPsec VPN or license-less VPN clients for Windows, Mac and Linux. Scan VPN traffic with integrated anti-virus. Supports standard encryption algorithms: SSL for the control channel (TCP) and Blowfish for the data transport (UDP).
Bandwidth Management & QOS
Kerio Control empowers IT admins to fine-tune bandwidth management rules to guarantee bandwidth for high-priority network traffic types (like VoIP or video conferencing) and restrict bandwidth for low-priority network traffic types. Create rules by user/group, specific protocol, DSCP value, and more. Monitor bandwidth usage with real-time traffic charts. Use multiple connections simultaneously with automatic link load balancing and maintain Internet uptime with active/passive or active/active failover.
