WEBINAR: Rethinking Identity and Access Governance in a World of Change and Complexity

Organisations and the environments they operate in are more complex than ever and they are also experiencing unprecedented change. Budgets are shrinking, cloud computing and SaaS present compelling options, attacks are on the rise and regulations continue to impact operations.

It is more critical than ever to understand Identity and Access strategythe access your users have and what they are doing with the access they have been granted. Knowing who has access to what, why they have the access, when they got the access, etc. are all required, but this information resides in the business rather than IT.

Discover how empowering your users to manage and review their access can help you mitigate risk, ensure compliance and reduce overall costs.

Kerio Gives Customers Access to a Scalable and Headache Free Email Experience with Kerio Connect 8

 

Kerio

Kerio Technologies have launched a new cloud service infrastructure for its partners and customers.

Although Kerio previously enabled its channel partners to host Kerio Connect on their own hardware using the SaaS model, this marks Kerio’s first major push into true, hosted infrastructure services. The first Kerio Cloud offering will be the company’s flagship product, Kerio Connect 8, a messaging (email) and calendaring server.

Unlike cloud email solutions such as Microsoft Office 365 or Google Apps, Kerio offers its customers a private cloud experience, which in turn allows them more control over their own data.

“Pundits have touted cloud services and predicted the demise Scott Schreiman CEO Kerio Technologiesof on-premise solutions for a few years now,” said Scott Schreiman, CEO, Kerio Technologies. “While customer data suggests that onsite servers are still very popular, we think Kerio Cloud is the most secure and flexible solution for the IT guy that is looking for an alternative, but is still evaluating the cloud. Our private cloud not only eliminates the need for partners to carry the hardware burden, it allows them to focus their energy on adding value instead of worrying about the availability of email services.”

The way it works: Kerio Cloud is a hosted infrastructure service that allows Kerio partners to resell Kerio “Software as a Service” to their end customers, eliminating the need to purchase and maintain their own server environments. Kerio will provide its partners with private virtual machines running Kerio Connect 8 in the cloud with some basic configuration. The Kerio partner will take it from thereWalter Huff Huff Technologies, acting as the primary administrator and support contact for their clients.

“We have long offered Kerio Connect as an alternative to Exchange and Google Apps,” said Walter Huff, president of Huff Technologies, a Kerio preferred partner in Jacksonville, Florida. “As email has moved to the cloud, I was anxious to participate in the Kerio Cloud beta program, and after testing with my clients, I can report that the reliability, security and ease of administration rivals any other email service on the market.”

Kerio Connect 8 features the new Kerio Connect client, which is a completely redesigned Webmail experience that has been rebuilt from the ground up to deliver the performance and experience users expect from a modern web application. Email, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes are fully functional in the Kerio Connect client.

In addition to this new cloud offering, Kerio Connect 8 continues to be available as an on-premise server solution and through our existing SaaS hosting partners.
