Nine good reasons to protect your network with GFI KerioControl

Flexible deployment

Deploy KerioControl as a software appliance on your own hardware, a virtual appliance in an existing VMware environment or a turnkey hardware appliance. KerioControl software and a hardened OS are packaged into a single bare-metal ISO image. This flexibility lets you custom spec your own hardware while avoiding conflicting applications and vulnerable system services. All hardware appliances include Kerio Antivirus and KerioControl Web Filter.

Next-generation firewall capabilities

KerioControl is an all-in-one Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution providing comprehensive next-generation firewall protection of your network and data. KerioControl includes a next-generation firewall and router, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IPS), gateway anti-virus, VPN and web content and application filtering.

A simple and secure VPN

Link headquarters to remote users and branch offices securely and easily. KerioControl has its own VPN tunneling with dead-simple setup. It 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.

Usage reporting that boosts productivity

KerioControl Statistics lets you track the internet and application activities of individual users – whether it’s a list of all the sites they’ve visited, or even specific search terms they enter on search engines. These granular insights can help you refine traffic-shaping rules, monitor employee performance and more. The reports can automatically run on a schedule and be emailed to you, so there’s no need to pull reports each week.

Unmatched Quality of Service (QoS)

KerioControl QoS gives you fine-grained control over how much bandwidth each type of network traffic can consume. Easily prioritize and monitor network traffic to guarantee high-speed transmission for the most important traffic types. Cap lower priority traffic by setting a bandwidth maximum or guarantee high priority traffic by assigning a minimum. KerioControl also uses Internet Link load balancing to distribute internet traffic across multiple links.

Easy administration – anytime, anywhere

Stay in control of all your Kerio deployments from anywhere using MyKerio – a customizable web-based console on your desktop or tablet. Manage multiple KerioControl deployments through a complimentary centralized web interface that provides consolidated system information, automatic configuration backup, status monitoring, system notifications and complete remote configuration.

Industry-leading web, content and application filtering

The KerioControl Web Filter lets you allow, deny or limit the applications, websites and internet services that users can access. It continually updates its list of thousands of applications and more than six billion web pages – placing them into more than 140 categories. Keep bandwidth-hogging traffic off your network and stop users from visiting sites that may contain viruses and spyware. The filter is included in the KerioControl hardware appliance and as an add-on when KerioControl is deployed as a software or virtual appliance.

An advanced Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

The KerioControl IPS adds a transparent layer of network protection designed to accurately identify and block attacks, while maintaining an optimal level of network performance. It protects servers behind the firewall from unauthorized connections and keeps users from downloading malicious content or malware. The IPS features Snort-based behavior analysis and a regularly updated database of rules and blocklisted IP addresses from Emerging Threats.

High availability

With high availability, if a crash or failure occurs your second KerioControl machine jumps into action. You have no vulnerability exposure, and your users see no drop of service. Without high availability, a prime device failure often leads network administrators to put a simple router in place to re-establish connectivity – which can lead to productivity losses and vulnerability exposure.
