What I like the most about Kerio is that I can use the software appliance as a solution, so if the hardware fails for any reason then I can quickly replace it with hardware that I have in stock.All of the features of Kerio Control are equally good. Most valuable to us are the firewall rules, the intrusion detection system, and IP address features.The most valuable feature is to provide users with the ability to log in to the portal page, keep track of their data usage and perform bandwidth management.The flexibility of the system, the capacity to provide the right level of security, and the ability to be integrated into different kinds of infrastructures are the most valuable features.The statistic feature enables us to better use bandwidth management. We monitored the use by mobile, type of application, department, and by users. The bandwidth was solid. Our internet speed is optimized for our research.Kerio has improved my organization's security.Technical support is good. They respond right away.It has helped our organization with testing.

My advice is to use your own hardware, and do not use theirs.There is a yearly upkeep fee.The pricing is in-line with our expectations in terms of the quality that we get for it.It's very affordable.The price is inexpensive.Pricing is good, but the licensing took a lot of time.Search and compare.
