Kerio Technologies Launches Workspace, the Best Place for Teams to Share Files and Collaborate on Great Ideas

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Kerio Technologies Inc. today announced Kerio Workspace, a single place that makes it easy for teams to bring together documents, files, notes, discussions and multimedia content. 

"Kerio Workspace sits firmly between document management platforms and on-premise or cloud-based file shares," said Scott Schreiman, CEO, Kerio Technologies. "After more than a decade of serving the email and security needs of SMB customers, we specifically built Workspace to fill the huge gap between simple file-sharing services that offer little to promote team collaboration and complex document management products that are very difficult to use and costly to maintain."

Kerio Workspace gives teams one place to store project notes, ideas, policies, memos, files, or conversations. New team members use Workspace to get up to speed and are able to begin modifying and creating new content without having to learn or install new software or read a manual. Additionally, all team members can easily stay updated of changes in the areas that matter most to them.

Accessed via any web browser, Kerio Workspace enables teams to organize projects and content. Some teams will use it as a central repository for files with commented version control. Others will opt for a more rich experience where files play a secondary role to creating, sharing, and storing content directly on Web pages.

Because teamwork thrives on effective communication, Kerio Workspace provides News Feeds, which empower each contributor to deliberately notify their colleagues about the scope and nature of any change made. News Feeds, available through the Workspace interface or via an email alert, is similar to social networking, only it's productive.

"We have implemented Kerio Workspace as a collaboration tool used in our installation projects. The fact that Kerio Workspace enables multiple people in different locations to collaborate simultaneously on the same document from any computer with Internet access and also to keep track of all changes, is simply priceless," said Manuel Pablo Lorenzo, president, LoNet, Inc. "We don't have to send unnecessary e-mails to the participants on a project any more, the News Feed is the centralized forum that improves productivity."

Designed for teams, workgroups and SMBs, Kerio Workspace offers all the relevant functionality of an enterprise product, with none of the complexity and high cost of ownership:

  • Organize Files -- Easily upload and organize text, office files, video and more into dedicated sections, making content easier to locate, access and share. The obstacles to collaboration are lifted and tracking progress on crucial projects is simplified.

  • Share Content -- Securely share text, images, video and files with the ability to set appropriate access controls so authorized colleagues can edit the pages while others can only view them; quickly locate content via the search tool.

  • Edit Documents -- No need to download before editing a file, simply click on a file context menu to open the file in its native application. When closed, the file will automatically save changes.

  • Track Changes -- Review comments and track process from contributing team members. The news feed option gives users the ability to receive email notification of updates in real-time.

  • View on iPhone and iPad -- View Kerio Workspace on the iPad and the iPhone in an optimized for the smaller screen version, and read content everywhere the day takes you.

Kerio Workspace is currently available in 16 languages from authorized Kerio Partners and resellers. Pricing starts at $150 for a 5-user license. Additional user licenses are $30 each.
