Acronis launches two disk management products designed for business environments

Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Gives IT Administrators Powerful, Easy-to-Use Partitioning and Disk Management Tools

Woburn, Mass., October 14, 2010 — Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use backup, recovery and security solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced the next generation of its corporate disk management products, Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Advanced Server and Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Advanced Workstation. Each is designed to reduce the time IT administrators are required to spend on the essential work of managing and maintaining hard drives for better performance and business data safety.

Acronis Disk Director11 Advanced Server and Acronis Disk Director11 Advanced Workstation simplify the job of moving, resizing and creating partitions on local and remote machines. They combine several features to shorten the time administrators need to convert, resize, copy, split and merge both local and remotely-located volumes.  Other features include using striped volumes to increase performance, a central management console and an enhanced user interface. The new products include support for both Windows Server 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 in the Advanced Server version and Windows 7 in the Advanced Workstation version.

  • Dynamic disk support — Spread volumes over several disks, plus convert existing basic disks to dynamic to achieve additional disk reliability for data storage
  • GPT disk support — Create volumes over 2 TB and get additional disk reliability against possible data damage
  • Add or break mirrored volumes — Make a basic or simple volume fault-tolerant in just one action by adding a mirror. If extra unallocated space is needed on a disk containing one of the mirrors, remove a mirror
  • Span volume across multiple physical disks — Optimize the system by combining free space on different hard disk drives and get larger volumes
  • Convert MBR disk to GPT and vice versa — Use to make a volume whose size is over 2 TB or if you need more than four primary volumes on one disk
  • Clone disk to a replacement HDD — Replace basic MBR disks with new ones without reinstalling operating systems and applications
  • Remote management — Powerful and easy-to-use tool for managing disks and volumes on local and remote machines

“As a user of previous Acronis Disk management products, I am pleased to see that the product is moving forward with new features and support for new versions of the platforms,” said Anders Nilsson, a beta tester and Director of Development, NAF-Data AS in Oslo, Norway.  “I am especially pleased with the ability to manage several computers from a central point.”

“Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced Server is a big step towards providing full featured support for multiple drive types those currently popular — and those that will be in the coming years,” said Paul, another beta tester from California. “Many features have been added and many of the existing features have been improved.”

“IT administrators have a powerful new tool to help better manage and maintain hard drives in a corporate environment,” said Lisa Robinson Schoeller,Director of Product MarketingatAcronis.  “Using the new Acronis Disk Director 11 products, IT administrators can more efficiently manage partitioning on local and remote machines.”

Kerio Connect 7.1 Offers Native Support for BlackBerry

Latest Release of Kerio Connect Integrates with BlackBerry Enterprise Server Providing over-the-air Synchronization of Mail, Contacts, and Calendars

Kerio Technologies, Inc., a leading innovator in IT security and messaging, today announced that Kerio Connect 7.1, a messaging and collaboration server, has been updated with improvements to its mobile connectivity options. Most prominent is the new Kerio Connector for BlackBerry, which provides synchronization between Kerio Connect and all BlackBerry devices.

“In Kerio Connect 7.1, we’ve focused on BlackBerry. BlackBerry smartphones work best with BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, and we’ve made sure Kerio Connect 7.1 supports these servers natively,” says Dusan Vitek, VP of Worldwide Marketing at Kerio Technologies. “Mobile email has been wildly successful with our customers, and we will continue to deliver the broadest variety of wireless email options in the industry, including the iPhone and Android phones.”

“This is a welcome message for everyone with a lot of BlackBerry users. Where Microsoft SBS used to be the only option for SMB customers with remotely managed BlackBerry phones, Kerio Connect is now a viable and better long-term option for those hitting the technical limitations of their Microsoft SBS server.” says Josh Turiel, Managing Partner at JH Turiel and Associates, a Preferred Partner of Kerio, based in Beverly, Massachusetts.

Kerio Connector for BlackBerry syncs data between BlackBerry Enterprise Server and Kerio Connect. IT administrators must install Kerio Connector for BlackBerry on their BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express. Customers get the full manageability of their smartphones directly from BlackBerry Enterprise Server and users can use the native email, contact and calendar applications that ship with every BlackBerry phone.

Open communication standards embraced by Kerio Connect 7.1 provide new choices for customers preferring the popular iPhone 4. CardDAV and CalDAV synchronization protocols allow any user with an iPhone and iOS 4 to wirelessly synchronize contacts and calendar data between Kerio Connect and the iPhone.

Microsoft’s Exchange ActiveSync protocol has been supported in Kerio Connect for many years and now comes with a new tweak to address the rising demand for viewing public folders on mobile devices.

“A rapid shift in the adoption of shared and public folders made us look hard into improving the quality of experience for our most progressive mobile customers,” says Tomas Soukup, Product Development Manager for Kerio Connect. “We’ve built a brand new method for syncing shared and public folders with smartphones over the Exchange ActiveSync protocol, giving our customers a strong benefit they will not find elsewhere.”

Kerio Connect 7.1 ships with a new high-performance anti-virus and anti-malware scan engine from Sophos, and is fully compatible with the new Microsoft Outlook 2010.

Providing the widest choice of deployment options of any messaging and collaboration solution, Kerio Connect runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and is also available as a production-ready virtual appliance on the VMware and Parallels platforms.

Acronis launches new disk management and partitioning solution

Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Home brings together popular disk management functions, partition recovery tools, and boot disk manager in one user-friendly package

Woburn, Mass., June 15, 2010 – Acronis, a provider of easy-to-use backup, recovery and security solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced the next generation of its disk management product, Acronis® Disk Director® 11 Home, designed to help home PC users organize their hard drives for better performance and data safety.

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home, the first in a line of new disk management tools to be launched from Acronis, puts powerful disk management tools in the hands of home users who can simply and safely carry out tasks like resizing, splitting and merging volumes.

The latest version of the product adds new features including:

  • Dynamic Disk support – enables volumes to be spread across multiple physical disks
  • The ability to add or manage mirror volumes, which helps make basic or simple volumes fault-tolerant in just one action by adding a mirror
  • Supports very large disks and allows creation of volumes over 2TB
  • The capability to clone a disk to a replacement hard disk without having to reinstall operating systems and applications
  • New user interface simplifies operations on disks and partitions
  • The new version also provides support for Windows 7 and 64-bit

In addition, it allows multiple operating systems to be installed on a single PC— keeping your system up-to-date with the latest Windows operating system while having the ability to run legacy applications on older operating systems.

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home can also be used to expand the capabilities of Acronis’ popular Acronis True Image Home 2010 backup and recovery product – use Acronis Disk Director 11 Home to create two partitions on a PC, one for data and one for applications. Acronis True Image Home 2010 then only needs to back up the changes in the data partition, eliminating the need to back up the system partition again until you install new applications or apply new patches.

“This new version enhances many favorites found in previous releases of Acronis Disk Director while adding new features, like Windows 7 support, Dynamic Disk support and disk cloning to a replacement hard drive. Acronis Disk Director 11 Home is not only more valuable to the advanced user, but because it is easy to use, it’s made these features more accessible to relative novices who can now take on tasks they once would have left to professionals,” said Jason Donahue, Acronis CEO.

“The new UI is probably the cleanest and easiest interface to work with,” writes beta tester Hal Abernethy from Salem, VA.  “All options are at hand and self-explanatory Excellent design on the interface!”

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home runs on PCs equipped with a Windows-supported operating system (Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7), supporting FAT 16, FAT 32, NTFS, Ext2, Ext3, Reiser FS3 and Linux SWAP file systems.

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home is priced at $49.99. Corporate versions of the solution for workstations and servers are scheduled to follow later this year. For business customers purchasing Acronis Disk Director Suite 10 after June 15, 2010, Acronis is offering a free upgrade to Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced Workstation until the product is released.  The same is true for those purchasing Acronis Disk Director Server 10 after June 15, 2010 can also take advantage of a free upgrade to Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced Server until the product is released.

Kerio Control 7 Raises the Bar For Network Security Management

New UTM from Kerio Technologies Offers Strong Protection from Evolving Internet Threats 

Kerio Technologies today unveils the latest evolution of its gateway security product line, Kerio Control. Building upon Kerio WinRoute Firewall’s 13-year heritage, the new UTM server solution and software appliance offers network administrators complete network security and a wealth of tools to manage user access and optimize performance. Equipped with an embedded IDS/IPS engine, Kerio Control provides comprehensive management of rapidly evolving security threats.

Front and center in the new product are its Intrusion Detection and Prevention capabilities (IDS/IPS). Based on industry standard Snort technology, Kerio Control’s IDS/IPS classifies and stops attacks against servers, applications, clients and infrastructure components. An integrated three-level threat rating system allows a graduated response to each incident based on the severity of the threat. The signature database used for traffic analysis is enhanced by the included IP blacklists.

“At Triton, we have always been extremely happy with the Kerio’s straightforward user interface, easy VPN, and detailed reporting,” says David Denchik, President of Triton Technical, a premier IT consulting firm and a Kerio Certified Partner from Seattle, WA. “The new Kerio Control introduces both IDS and MAC address filtering which are both welcome additions that will enable us to meet client requirements without purchasing separate hardware or software. We are particularly excited about Kerio’s implementation of IDS and the ease of support of having this feature integrated in one solution.”

Kerio Control comes with a fresh new Web Administration console, raising the standard for manageability of security and UTM products. The Web Administration has the look and feel of a true desktop application, making the enforcement of sophisticated network policies a snap for most IT administrators, a startling difference compared to the management tools of other UTM appliances.

Kerio StaR, the cornerstone data analytics component of Kerio Control, interprets and displays network activity in a variety of comprehensive views, to assist in identifying security threats, traffic patterns, and performance bottlenecks. Just like the new Web Administration, Kerio StaR is accessible from any browser, giving managers instant insight into the web behavior of every single employee or user in their network. The database-driven Kerio StaR gives administrators useful trend reports based on historic data, allowing them to view and inspect changing usage patterns and take swift action on any emerging network abuse.

Kerio Technologies is transitioning to new anti-virus and anti-malware technology partner, Sophos. Kerio Control 7 is the first Kerio product to ship with an embedded high-performance Sophos anti-virus engine that provides the option to scan to all inbound and outbound web, email and FTP traffic for malware. While Kerio Control provides numerous plug-ins for other commercial and open-source anti-virus products, Sophos is a recommended option for every customer installation of the new UTM as it provides a seamless experience and painless setup.

ICSA labs certified as a Corporate Firewall, Kerio Control provides both network and application layer security. Kerio Control puts special focus on the client-to-server VPN, providing an unparalleled choice of VPN clients for all major platforms – Mac, Windows, and Linux. Kerio VPN Client works with practically any combination of operating system versions, giving modern organizations tremendous flexibility in the way they deploy VPN to their users.

“Kerio Control 7 is the elaborate execution of a very simple idea – a gateway security product that provides seemingly endless options, yet all are very easy to implement,” says Scott Schreiman, CEO of Kerio Technologies Inc.

Whether deploying as a hardened Linux software appliance or a certified Windows application, Kerio Control can run on 32-bit and 64-bit server or workstation systems. The Kerio Control 7 software appliance can turn any PC into a dedicated UTM appliance using the ISO image, while the specially designed virtual appliance for VMware can be easily imported into existing virtual environments to maximize ROI on existing IT equipment.

The Kerio Control server license starts at USD$255 and includes 5 users, with 5-user packs starting at just USD$120. Unlike most competitors, Kerio has no added fees for VPN clients.

Kerio Control is available for download immediately with a 30 day unrestricted evaluation period.
