TMCnet recently had a chance to catch up with a few of Interop’s exhibitors and vendors at Interop in Las Vegas. Kerio and TMCnet’s CEO, Rich Tehrani (News - Alert) talked with James Gudeli, VP of Business Development for Kerio, to see what’s going on with their organization.
Kerio Technologies provides Internet solutions that allow businesses to communicate securely and simplify IT for small businesses. Kerio considers themselves as an alternative IT company that is fully functional yet simple to deploy, two key needs for SMBs.
The company has been busy in the headlines recently, as their Connect 7.4, the latest version of its messaging server, has been optimized for iPad interface, making it easier for IT managers to perform administrative duties anywhere.
For SMBs, this could prove as a useful tool for troubleshooting right on the spot.
Kerio’s CEO, Scott Schreiman, was named a Top Influencer in the SMB space by SMB Nation. The SMB 150, a collaborative effort between SMB Nation and SMB Technology Network, is the SMB technology channel's annual list of its 150 most influential members, and Schreiman joins a group of esteemed colleagues who were chosen during a two-phase voting process.
They offer four different solutions for SMBs that speak to a variety of needs, all of which are easy to deploy and use without hassle.
Kerio Connect, Kerio Control, Kerio Operator, and Kerio Workspace all provide different solutions, from messaging to advanced e-mail, VPN to bandwidth controls, file sharing to collaboration, and even the ability to improve communication at a low cost.
The company offers on-demand webinars, so that users can hop on at any time and gain access to a full knowledge base with tips, tricks and more.They strive to be cloud-friendly, particularly in an era where cloud computing is fast becoming the number one technology.
“Definitely making sure that we are cloud-friendly with our software products is important. The other big elephant in the room these days is ‘bring your own device’, which is something of a personal goal for us for years,” said Gudeli. “Supporting popular smartphones and devices like the iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad and Android have been both a big part of the client-side products.”
