New version! - Kerio WinRoute Firewall is no longer just a network firewall. New features added in versions 6.x and 7.0 make the software a complex tool combining features for local network security, remote network access as well as user Internet access control and monitoring. The name Kerio Control is derived from the user access control feature.
Kerio Control 7.0 brings the following improvements:
- Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IPS/IDS) - Kerio Control now integrates one of the most top used intrusion detection and prevention systems — Snort. This system enhances security provided by the firewall and makes Kerio Control a UTM solution (Unified Threat Management).
- MAC address filtering - This new module in the firewall enables network traffic filtering by physical addresses (MAC addresses) of network devices. Filtering of physical address helps for example prevent users from undesirable connections to the network or get around the firewall traffic policy by changing IP address of their device.
- New licensing policy - Licensing policy for Kerio Control has been changed. Now it is possible to purchase licenses for customized number of users.
