Block the threats that can
bring down your network


High availability

With high-availability, if a crash or failure occurs your second Kerio Control machine jumps into action. Users see no drop of service.
You have no vulnerability exposure.

  • Acquire and install a second, same Kerio Control appliance or virtual machine
  • A single software license will cover the two pieces of hardware
  • Customers configure the second device as a clone of the active one
  • Configuration settings are easy-to-do and take minutes
  • Once configured, the two devices connect through a synching port and all rules and routing are replicated and kept up-to-date between them.

Intrusion prevention system

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.

  • IPS in Kerio Control
    Kerio Control, a Unified Threat Management solution, incorporates a signature based packet analysis architecture known as Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IPS), which transparently monitors inbound and outbound network communication to identify suspicious activity.
  • Server Security
    In many deployments, servers are placed behind the firewall, and only those services being hosted can receive connections. Depending on the type of service hosted (e.g. SQL server) the firewall may not have the ability to inspect the actual conversation taking place between a client and the server.
  • Adding the IPS layer
    Keeping server software updated is critical to protecting server applications from this type of threat. Application vendors regularly update their software to patch security vulnerabilities.
  • Mitigating the effects of Trojans, Worms, Spyware and other Malware
    Aside from the exploitation of available services to vulnerable applications, there are other ways to exploit an operating system. One of the more common approaches used by an attacker is to piggyback an application on top of free software.
