What is Kerio Control?


Kerio Control is an easy-to-use firewall system with enterprise-level features and functionality.  This includes an anti-virus gateway as well as an intrusion-prevention system.  It also includes advanced features such as web filtering and web application filtering as well as quality of service and bandwidth management capabilities,  

Today’s workforce is becoming increasingly more mobile and dispersed. As a result, it is an absolute necessity that secure VPN connectivity be provided by any firewall manufacturer.  Unlike many of our competitors, Kerio does not charge for VPN functionality.

No other firewall has as many flexible deployment options as Kerio Control.  You can purchase our hardware boxes; you can install an ISO file on bare metal; or, you can install a VMware or Hyper-V virtual appliance.

World Lung Cancer Day (August 1st ) Commemorates, Celebrates, and Supports Those Impacted by Lung Cancer

GLENVIEW, Ill. (July 29, 2016) – On World Lung Cancer Day on August 1, the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST), alongside members of the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS) commemorates, celebrates and supports those impacted by lung cancer. FIRS joins the grassroots efforts of the lung cancer community to raise awareness about lung cancer and its global impact, creating an educational movement of understanding lung cancer risks as well as early treatment around the world.

Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, accounting for 1.8 million new cases in 2012, and is responsible for nearly one in five cancer deaths according to the World Health Organization. Lung cancer claims more lives yearly than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 224,390 new cases of lung cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2016, accounting for about 14% of all cancer diagnoses in the United States alone.

World Lung Cancer Day 2016: Honor, Unite, Inspire highlights the many risk factors to be aware of in order to detect lung cancer at the earliest stage possible. While most understand that smoking is the single greatest risk factor for lung cancer, other lesser known risk factors include environment and genetics. Environmental exposure to radon, asbestos, arsenic, beryllium and uranium have all been linked to lung cancer. The risk of lung cancer also increases with a history of cancer in another part of the body, age, family history, radiation to the chest area and lung diseases like COPD.

The initiative also aims to shed light on key symptoms and screening options. Symptoms include change in mucus, chest or back pain, coughing up blood and difficulty swallowing. Tests that may be used to diagnose lung cancer include chest X-rays, CT and PET scans, bronchoscopy and needle biopsies. If you are a current or former smoker and over age 55, you may be a candidate for a low- dose CT scan screening that can offer early detection of lung cancer, potentially at its earliest stages.

“Treatment options for lung cancer have significantly advanced over the past few years and survival rates are increasing. We’re hopeful the World Lung Cancer Day efforts will help to continue to raise awareness of risks and increase early detection for the best possible outcomes,” said Dr. Gerard Silvestri, President-Elect of the American College of Chest Physicians.

More than 70,000 global FIRS members have united in support of World Lung Cancer Day, including member organizations: CHEST, Asociación Latinoamericana del Thorax (ALAT), the American Thoracic Society, the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology, the European Respiratory Society, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease and the Pan African Thoracic Society.

Patients, families and caregivers can download free educational resources and learn more about lung cancer, risk factors, screenings and treatment options by visiting http://www.chestnet.org/WLCD.

About CHEST
CHEST is the global leader in advancing best patient outcomes through innovative chest medicine education, clinical research and team-based care. Its mission is to champion the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of chest diseases through education, communication and research. CHEST serves as an essential connection to clinical knowledge and resources for its 19,000 members from around the world who provide patient care in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. For more information, visit chestnet.org.

About the Forum of International Respiratory Societies
FIRS is an organization consisting of the world’s leading international respiratory societies working together to improve lung health globally: American Thoracic Society, CHEST, Asociación Latinoamericana De Tórax, Asian Pacific Society of Respirology, European Respiratory Society, International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases and the Pan African Thoracic Society. The goal of FIRS is to unify and enhance efforts to improve lung health through the combined work of its more than 70,000 members globally.

Cloud: The New Secret of Success for MSPs

If you are a Managed Service Provider or an IT Solution Provider, I encourage you to read this white paper on the advantages of cloud-based solutions.

Some highlights:
  • Cloud solutions offer reliability, scalability, capacity, focus, and competitive advantage to your customers.  
  • Cloud offerings are not only growing fast, but they are proving to offer substantially higher profit margins for resellers and MSPs vs. on-premisise products.
  • Customers will choose partners based on trust and ability to grow as the need arises.
  • As customers adopt cloud services, there's a clear opportunity for MSPs to resell, provision, and manage these services.
  • Cloud offers opportunity for MSP's to act as an "Outsourced CIO" as the in-house technology team becomes more strategic.
  • MSPs need to decide if they are in the business of "building" or "selling".  Most MSPs lack the capability to "build", so they'll rely heavily on key vendors. 
  • A blended approach (cloud + on-prem) is recommended for MSP's rather than exclusivity one way or the other.
  • Early traction should come from existing customers.
  • Customers still value the local partner/MSP who can provide training, consultation, and issue resolution.
  • MSP's should focus on managing the customer experience, not just the technology.

San Jose, Calif, July 12, 2016 – Today Kerio Technologies released Kerio Connect 9.1, strengthening its messaging and collaboration solution for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) with new presence status, chat features and more.

“In this release we’re making it even easier for SMBs to communicate," said Heather Paunet, VP Products of Kerio Technologies. “New presence status and integrated chat enables users to easily check the availability of their contacts and gives them the option to respond to a communication quickly, in real-time if they're 'Online', but if their status is set to 'Do Not Disturb', they can send an email.”

The latest release also adds many user productivity features including remembering selected messages when sorting, searching or switching folder, time stamp (as well as date stamp) in email list and many user experience improvements.

"We are always looking for ways to make business communication smarter," said Mirek Kren, CEO of Kerio Technologies. "By helping users process their communications efficiently, spending less time managing their inbox, we are helping SMBs work more productively."

Kerio Connect 9.1 also includes more domain based configuration capabilities, making it easier to configure various settings individually for different domains. Each domain can be allocated a separate email address for archiving and each domain can have a separate storage quota, with notifications being sent when the quota limit is almost reached.

With deployment options for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and VMware, Kerio Connect 9.1 is ready to run in virtually any cloud or on-premises environment. Cloud-hosted Kerio Connect is available from Kerio partners worldwide. On-premises Kerio Connect starts at $465 for five users. For more information, please visit www.kerio.com/connect.

Attention Georgia Drivers: Order Your Lung Cancer Awareness License Plates Today!

The state of Georgia provides its drivers the first – and only -specialty license plate in the country specifically dedicated to lung cancer awareness. Drivers in Georgia can alert fellow motorists that lung cancer matters!

The plates are available exclusively through The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund. Georgia drivers can learn more and begin the process of getting theirs at LungCancerLicensePlate.org.

The license plate is sponsored by The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund, a non-profit based in Atlanta that raises awareness and research funds for the number one cancer killer in the world.

"My mother, Joan Gaeta, died of lung cancer after a three-and-a-half year battle," says Tina Pink, a VP of Fundraising for the Gaeta Fund. "She was most passionate about raising awareness and fighting the stigma of the disease. This plate is a big step in that direction. I know she would be very proud!"

Mrs. Pink's sister, Theresa Andretta, VP of Operations, concurs. "Lung cancer kills more people than the next five cancers combined! Yet, it receives the least amount of funding. We have no choice but to raise awareness and to fight the stigma. These plates are a great way to do that."

The $25 plate manufacturing fee, payable to The Joan GaetaLung Cancer Fund, helps them support ground-breaking research through the AddarioLung Cancer Medical Institute.

ABOUT THE JOAN GAETA LUNG CANCER FUND
The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund was created in the fall of 2007 as The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Foundation by her husband and children to raise awareness of the disease, to educate the public, and to be an advocate for research. They also strive to eliminate the stigma of lung cancer and to support survivors and their loved ones in their local community.
In July of 2010, they re-launched as The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund benefiting the Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute. Their ultimate goal remains the same: “to eradicate lung cancer.” By partnering with one significant research initiative, they can make a much greater impact in wiping out lung cancer. http://www.forjoan.org

ABOUT THE ADDARIO LUNG CANCER MEDICAL INSTITUTE (ALCMI)
ALCMI was established in 2008 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization with the ultimate goal of significantly impacting survival by directly catalyzing and accelerating discovery of new and more effective treatment options for all lung cancer patients. Presently, ALCMI has 13 academic and community medical centers in the United States and Europe closely collaborating on cutting edge research initiatives. http://www.alcmi.net
