Kerio Technologies has announced a new version of its award-winning, cross-platform email and collaboration solution. As Kerio MailServer is now so much more than a mail server, it has been rebranded as Kerio Connect.
Distributed Domains - While companies often install separate messaging servers in offices located in other cities or countries for performance, security or compliance reasons, they often lose the benefits of a single collaboration server ? most notably the ability to see the availability of co-workers in other offices. Kerio Connect 7 allows companies to join their Kerio Connect servers into a single geographically dispersed cluster with servers aware of each other?s user groups, individual user?s availability, shared contacts in Global Address Lists, or shared resources such conference rooms. Complete Web Administration - Complete and easy to use web-based Administration Console, providing remote management of Kerio Connect from any modern browser - Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari.
CardDAV Protocol Support - Kerio continues to push toward open standards in messaging and collaboration with the implementation of a new open source protocol CardDAV for address book synchronisation. Apple Address Book, a CardDAV-compliant client in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, now syncs contacts directly with Kerio Connect 7. A configuration utility available through Kerio WebMail helps users setup their Address Book in a few clicks.
New mobile device support - Kerio Connect 7 brings support for over-the-air synchronisation of Palm Pre, Google Nexus, Verizon Droid, T-Mobile G2 and HTC Hero mobile devices. It is possible to synchronise email messages, tasks, contacts and calendar events.
