Kerio Control


Unified Threat Management Without Complexity

Protect your network from viruses, malware and malicious activity with Kerio Control, the easy-to-administer yet powerful all-in-one security solution.

Kerio Control brings together multiple capabilities — including a network firewall and router, intrusion detection and prevention (IPS), gateway anti-virus, VPN and content filtering. These comprehensive capabilities and unmatched deployment flexibility make Kerio Control the ideal choice for small and mid-sized businesses.

Network Firewall, Router and Leading-Edge IPS

Preserve the integrity of your servers with deep packet inspection and advanced network routing capabilities — including simultaneous IPv4 and IPv6 support. Create inbound and outbound traffic policies, restricting communication by specific URL, traffic type, content category and time of day.

Kerio Control’s IPS adds a transparent layer of network protection, with Snort-based behavior analysis, and a regularly updated database of rules and blacklisted IP addresses from Emerging Threats.

Advanced Sophos Gateway Antivirus

Keep viruses, worms, trojans and spyware from infesting your network with integrated Sophos Gateway Antivirus.

The optional Sophos Antivirus service scans all web and FTP traffic, email attachments and downloads, automatically updating itself with the latest virus definitions.

Industry-Leading Web and Content Filtering

Selectively block, allow or log access to 141 categories of web content with Kerio Control Web Filter. Keep bandwidth-hogging traffic like streaming video off your network or block peer-to-peer networks. Keep your users from visiting malware sites that are known to contain viruses and spyware or to engage in phishing or identity theft.

The optional Kerio Control Web Filter service limits legal liability, protects your network and boosts user productivity by limiting user access to dangerous or inappropriate sites or those that just plain waste time.

Unmatched Quality of Service

Easily prioritize and monitor network traffic to guarantee high-speed transmission for the most important traffic types. Internet Link Load Balancing optimizes Internet access by distributing traffic across multiple links. Kerio Control monitors link availability, and automatically disables or re-enables links to ensure continuous Internet access.

Kerio Control QoS gives you fine-grained control over how much bandwidth each type of network traffic can consume. Cap lower priority traffic by setting a bandwidth maximum, or guarantee high priority traffic by assigning a minimum. Kerio Control also uses Internet Link Load Balancing to distribute Internet traffic across multiple links.

Productivity-Boosting Usage Reporting

Get detailed usage reporting with Kerio Control Statistics. This component lets managers and admins view the Internet activity details of individual users — from a list of all sites visited and when, to the specific search terms users enter on search engines and regular websites with search capabilities. Use these granular usage insights to refine traffic-shaping rules, monitor employee performance, and more. Best of all, these highly granular reports can automatically run on a schedule and be emailed to you, ready for your review — no need to actively pull reports each week.

Secure VPN

Link headquarters to remote users and branch offices — even third-party firewalls — securely and easily. Secure your client-to-site and server-to-server connections with Kerio’s proprietary VPN client, which requires no configuration, is user-friendly, and provides a high performance network connection. Or, use industry-standard IPsec to use standard VPN clients, such as those preloaded on mobile devices, and to allow VPN connections to pass through non-Kerio firewalls and routers.

Unparalleled Simplicity

Handle all administration and configuration activities from a customizable web-based console — no matter the deployment option you choose.

Manage anytime, anywhere from your desktop or tablet. Monitor system health and network traffic. Quickly and securely access security settings, manage users and bandwidth, and set traffic policies from an intuitive interface. Automatically back up your custom settings to secure cloud-based storage via integration to Samepage or to FTP.

Flexible Deployment

Bring secure operations to any IT environment, now and going forward.

Kerio Control deploys as a software appliance, a virtual machine, or a performance-optimized hardware appliance. It supports your organization’s IPv6 strategy, whether you’re transitioning from IPv4 or use both protocols. And you can use your favorite SNMP tools to monitor Kerio Control’s status.
