  • Eliminate the risk and cost of connectivity or threat protection downtime with High availability/ fail-over protection. With High availability, if a crash or failure occurs the second machine jumps into action immediately.

Detect threats, block viruses, control traffic and more

Kerio Control is a software product for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are looking for a comprehensive solution for their security needs. With Kerio Control, businesses gain:

  • An advanced firewall that connects you to the internet – letting you control what traffic is enabled or blocked
  • Intrusion protection that monitors traffic for threats and delivers anti-virus protection
  • Industry-leading web content and application filtering, for even more communications control
  • A secure virtual private network (VPN)

Why security is so important for SMEs

Security is a vital and often missing element for SMEs. According to one Verizon survey*, 43 percent of cyberattacks in 2019 targeted SMEs, forcing 22% of those companies to immediately cease operation.

Your Router + Firewall to connect securely to the Internet

  • Configure your firewall with easy-to-use traffic rules, controlling in- and outbound communications by URL, application, traffic type and more

  • Intrusion detection and prevention using the Snort system constantly monitors inbound and outbound network communications for suspicious activity. Log or block the communications depending on the severity

  • Prevent viruses, worms, Trojans and spyware from entering your network. Kerio Control goes beyond just checking files for malicious code; it scans your network traffic for potential attacks

Connect your organization with a secure VPN

  • Create secure, high-performance server-to-server connections between your offices running Kerio Control with an easy-to-setup VPN technology

  • Or, you can create a secure VPN connection to a remote office that doesn’t have Kerio Control deployed, using industry-standard VPN protocols

Manage your valuable bandwidth

  • Prioritize and monitor network traffic to guarantee high-speed transmission for your most important traffic types. Cap lower priority traffic by setting a bandwidth maximum or guarantee high priority traffic by assigning minimum thresholds

  • Distribute Internet traffic across multiple links with Internet Link load balancing, automatically disabling and re-enabling links to ensure continuous Internet access

  • Protect your network from bandwidth-hogging web and application traffic such as streaming video or by blocking peer-to-peer networks

  • Manage or block access to 100+ continuously updated categories of content and applications with the optional Kerio Control Web Filter w/ application awareness

Easy to deploy and manage

  • Kerio Control may be deployed as a software appliance, a virtual machine, or as a hardware appliance with three options:
    • NG110 – perfect for small businesses, remote and home offices
    • NG310 – the choice for small businesses planning for growth
    • NG510/NG511 – ideal for mid-sized businesses

  • Access security settings, manage users and bandwidth, and set policies from a customizable web-based interface on your desktop or mobile device

  • Manage multiple Kerio Control deployments through a centralized web interface

Next-generation firewall capabilities

Kerio Control brings together next-generation firewall capabilities -- including a network firewall and router, intrusion detection and prevention (IPS), gateway anti-virus, VPN, and web content and application filtering.

Simple and secure VPN

Link headquarters to remote users and branch offices securely and easily. Kerio’s own VPN tunneling with dead-simple setup requires minimal configuration, and provides a high-performance network connection. You can also use industry-standard IPsec/L2TP for connectivity from mobile devices or third-party firewalls.

Productivity boosting usage reporting

View individual users’ Internet activity, refine traffic-shaping rules and more with automatic, detailed reports from Kerio Control Statistics sent to your email inbox.

Use insights from reporting to limit legal liability and improve productivity by blocking access to sites, applications and content categories or limiting it to specific time of day, users/user groups and user locations.

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.

Administer quickly and easily - anytime, anywhere

Keep your users from visiting malware sites that are known to contain viruses and spyware or to engage in phishing or identity theft.

Intrusion prevention system
