Kerio Adds Web-Based Statistics Reporting and 64-bit OS Support to Its ICSA Labs-Certified Firewall Software, Kerio WinRoute Firewall

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Kerio Technologies today launched a new version of Kerio WinRoute Firewall that runs on 64-bit versions of the Windows OS and includes a new Statistics and Reporting module to provide a comprehensive overview of network and user activity.

In the past year, major OEM vendors started shipping higher quantities of server systems with 64-bit processors by AMD or Intel, which require 64-bit versions of Windows. Kerio WinRoute Firewall can now run on these systems, giving value-added resellers and network administrators more flexibility on how they can deploy their solution.

"Customers want to invest in the top of the line hardware that will support future changes to the applications they are running," says David Wagner of ASC Systems in Las Vegas. "Kerio WinRoute Firewall will be an easier sell now that it supports the same boxes people are buying today for their other networked apps."

The new version 6.3 also introduces StaR -- the Statistics and Reporting module -- that automatically analyzes network data and presents the underlying network traffic and usage patterns in an easy-to-read graphical format. It also reports on individual user traffic, with links to websites visited, or breaks down surfing by category when combined with the optional IBM Proventia Web Filter.

"There are a lot of great log analyzers that work with Kerio WinRoute Firewall," shared John Wu, product marketing manager at Kerio, "but those tools are designed for IT administrators. With StaR, detailed network usage diagrams can be output to a browser so that even the least technical business manager can understand how users are accessing the Internet and where bottlenecks are occurring."

Kerio WinRoute Firewall is a network security software package that provides gateway anti-virus scanning, web content filtering, VPN services and access policy management. Its full-featured Administration Console allows system administrators to remotely manage with much greater utility than the simple web interfaces found in most firewall appliances. Integration with Active Directory simplifies setup for existing Windows networks.

Kerio WinRoute Firewall and Kerio VPN Client run on Windows 2000/XP/2003 and Windows Vista and the built-in Kerio SSL-VPN supports Internet Explorer 6 and 7, Firefox 2 and Apple Safari 2.
