Today Kerio Technologies released Kerio Control 8.5, increasing security with two-step verification, while adding numerous usability improvements.

“Kerio continue to enhance security, without compromising simplicity,” said Henk Olivier of Ozone IT, the Kerio African distributor.

“In this release, it has added important and sophisticated security features that can be easily applied into any network with little or no disruption to business operations.”

Kerio Control’s introduction of two-step verification allows businesses to improve the security of remote access to network resources by requiring a time-based one-time password (TOTP) in addition to user credentials. Business owners will be reassured that network resources remain secure even if passwords land in the wrong hands.

New Service Discovery forwarding in Kerio Control 8.5 adds flexibility and simplicity to the network configuration. Remote users can now browse, locate and connect with devices such as printers, file servers, and scanners from different networks or Kerio VPN tunnels.

Kerio also makes it easier to manage installation and upgrades of the Kerio VPN client via a new installer package that allows deployment through third party tools such as Apple Remote Desktop or FileWave.

With an expanded set of email notifications in Kerio Control 8.5, administrators are able to keep informed of important network events and system status. A single check box during installation enables the most vital system alerts.
