Kerio Technologies, Inc., a leading innovator in Internet security and messaging, today announced a new version of Kerio WinRoute Firewall, a Windows-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) gateway security solution. This version premieres a cross-platform Kerio VPN Client for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, addressing a growing need to provide secure VPN connectivity to the mobile workforce with diverse OS platforms.
“More than ever, SMBs require cost-effective solutions that provide comprehensive network security, ease of use, and increased mobility and reliability,” said Andrew J. Hanson, Associate Research Analyst, Security Products for IDC. “While Kerio WinRoute Firewall already provides SMBs with many features, the new version gives customers flexibility to provide secure VPN access to critical business information irrespective of the platform, by supporting Windows, Mac, and Linux environments.”
According to Sammy Aindow, Senior Consultant for leading UK reseller Jigsaw, "We are pleased that there is a new Kerio VPN client for Mac and Linux. This should open up new business opportunities for us and help boost our Kerio WinRoute Firewall sales."
“Many of our customers want to establish persistent VPN tunnels with offsite servers to ensure encrypted connectivity with their local network. The ability of the new Kerio VPN Client to run automatically as a service allows those Mac, Linux or Windows servers to instantly reconnect after a reboot,” said Jan Jezek, product development manager for Kerio Technologies, Inc. “The new VPN server and multi-platform VPN Client in Kerio WinRoute Firewall also addresses the increasing popularity of alternative OS platforms in the workplace.”
Available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, the Kerio VPN Client is offered at no additional cost to valid license holders of Kerio WinRoute Firewall 6.6.
