Kerio Technologies Updates Its UTM Security Appliance for Cloud and Virtual Networks

Kerio Control 7.4 Also Gets Hyper-V Virtualization for Windows Networking Environments

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 30, 2012) - Kerio Technologies today announced Kerio Control 7.4, which adds VLAN support for easier network management of cloud, virtualized, and large environments. As corporate networks become more advanced and more stressed with employees adding their own devices, IT administrators are working hard to keep their network securely behind the firewall. Kerio Control 7.4 enables network admins to use VLANs to separate a large network into smaller, isolated segments, without incorporating additional switches or routers.

"Kerio Control 7.4 comes at a time when corporate networks are going through interesting changes. Everything from virtualization and cloud, to IPv6 has an impact on security," said James Gudeli, vice president of business development, Kerio Technologies. "We have made a great deal of investment in new features that support these advanced networks and IT environments while still meeting the needs of our legacy customers."

As Kerio Control has diverged from its Windows software version to Linux, we have created a Hyper-V software appliance so customers in Windows invested environments can still test and deploy the Linux software appliance on the Hypervisor.

Kerio Web Filter, an optional module of Kerio Control that prevents users from visiting websites that are known to contain malicious content, has been upgraded with HTTPS and embedded URL filtering. This ensures the network is not exposed by employees using encrypted Web connections or by accessing approved sites with embedded links to view inappropriate content.

A Kerio Control software server license starts at $265 USD and includes 5 users. Additional users are $26 each. Hardware appliance pricing starts at $1,000 USD for the Kerio Control Box 1110 with 5 users, which includes Sophos gateway antivirus and Kerio Control Web Filter. Kerio includes VPN clients for all users in the price. Kerio's VPN client is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Kerio Control 7.4 is available for download immediately with a 30-day unrestricted evaluation period. Visit http://www.kerio.com/control/ for more information.
