Ozone Information Technology Launches New Kerio Cloud Solutions to Better Support Small and Mid-Sized Businesses
Kerio Cloud infrastructure enables Value Added Resellers to build a profitable cloud communications business.
Kerio Technologies, the leading provider of communications and security solutions, announced the launch of a new Kerio Cloud infrastructure to support channel partners selling to small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs).
Kerio Cloud combines Kerio’s award-winning messaging and collaboration capabilities with an automated provisioning, billing and online tool for partners to manage customer mailboxes and settings on a secure cloud infrastructure.
“Ozone is focusing on providing SMBs and IT service providers the ability to have all the functions and benefits that large corporations have on a corporate email server, with functions such as instant messaging, mobile device access, offline backup and storage of email, calendar and contact sharing,” said Henk Olivier, CEO of Ozone Information Technology Solutions. “It is easier and more cost effective for SMBs to have cloud email services than to manage and maintain infrastructure themselves. “
Kerio Cloud is built on an SSAE 16 / SAS 70 and PCI audited fully managed private data center. Ozone has a Kerio Partner Program, where resellers can easily manage their cloud deployments, including provisioning mailboxes and options for their customers.
Kerio Cloud provides the channel community a way to build a profitable cloud communications business and quickly generate a recurring revenue stream, without the high costs, high risks, and long learning curves that come with developing a secure hosting infrastructure.
IT companies can become a partner/reseller of the product to end users and can build an annuity income revenue business.
With predictable monthly payments, smaller businesses can confidently plan monthly expenses through a choice of two pricing plans, Business and Business Pro. The Business plan starts at $4.99/month for a 10GB Kerio Connect mailbox, basic spam and virus protection, CalDAV/CardDAV/IMAP and optional unlimited email archiving. For an unlimited Kerio Connect mailbox, additional advanced spam and virus protection, plus Exchange ActiveSync, partners and customers can choose the Business Pro plan at $8.99/month.
