Enterprise E-Mail & Collaboration

Sononaco has partnered with Kerio, providing a suite of collaboration tools as a low-cost alternative to bulk email providers without sacrificing privacy.

As an alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Zimbra, Kerio meets the needs of small and mid-sized businesses. It offers unmatched deployment flexibility and broad mobile device support. Business users enjoy support for their favorite email client as well as intuitive Kerio Connect web mail.

Kerio Connect is stable — so you can focus on your business rather unexpected downtime and recovery. Deployment and administration are simple by design. And with lower licensing, service and hardware costs, Kerio Connect delivers measurable business value over other offerings.

BYOT Made Easy

Users are bringing their own devices to the workplace and that’s not going to change. Kerio Connect makes BYOT (“Bring Your Own Tech”) easy. From iPhones to Android phones to tablets, we support virtually every mobile device on the market. And Kerio Connect is so simple to use that end users can configure their own devices without bothering IT.

It works with everything

Users do not care about mail servers. They simply care that their email works, that it’s secure, and that they can use the email client that they prefer. Kerio Connect delivers the flexibility that users want and expect – the freedom to use Outlook (Windows & Mac), the OS X Apps for Mail, Calendar, Contacts & Reminders, or the full-featured Kerio Connect client for webmail.

Safe & Secure E-Mail

We have built powerful security into Kerio Connect. You’re protected against hacking and malicious attacks with SSL encryption, S/MIME, anti-spam and antivirus tools, and more. Automated backup with granular restore options ensure quick and easy recovery from all types of disasters. Server-wide archiving prevents data loss and helps organizations to comply with legal requirements for email retention.

Unparalleled Simplicity

Make no mistake. Microsoft Exchange and Small Business Server (SBS) consume significant IT resources. And with Microsoft moving from SBS to offering just a hosted solution, you need a real alternative for on-premise email. Kerio Connect is available in multiple configurations, including on-premise server deployments and SaaS/cloud email hosted options.

Kerio Connect delivers the features and functionality of Microsoft Exchange — without its complexity and cost. Management is easy. With Kerio Connect’s clean and simple web admin interface, you can even configure your system from a tablet device. We meet your requirements with the best and most flexible messaging and collaboration server on the market.

Advanced Spam Filtering

Kerio comes standard with SpamAssassin and integration with BitDefender*, both adept spam filtering systems. But if spam is driving you mad we also offer Securence mail filtering.

Securence provides advanced filtering services to clean emails of viruses and quarantine phishing scams. It also offers email shadowing so if your mail server is unreachable for any reason mail will be held by Securence until service is restored. And if any junk actually makes it through just forward it to spam@securence.com to make sure you will never see it again.

Securence starts at just $25 per month.

Pay-as-you-go

Pay-as-you-go accounts are also available for $25 per month which include 5GB of mailbox storage.

We have done our research and found that – for this amount of features, redundancy and support – these prices are comparable with or beat other email hosting providers to ensure we are offering you a great value without sacrificing service.

Our philosophy has always been that you should never have to think about email and hosting services because if you do then something is wrong. We want to make all transitions easy and transparent.

Advanced Spam Fighting & E-Mail Tools

Fighting spam is an unending battle. And spam, hacking and phishing techniques are constantly evolving. Sononaco has partnered with Securence to deliver iron-clad e-mail filtering. Securence is a service that intelligently filters email with a hands-on staff that individually evaluates false positives and analyzes to e-mails that may have slipped through their filters.

Securence also goes beyond by incorporating the most effective analytical, statistical and rule-based techniques. Their team of email filtering specialists maintain a constant vigil over email traffic globally and identifies new developments in spamming and virus infiltration. Sophisticated spam signatures and counter-measures are then developed and integrated into our filtering solutions daily.

But it’s not only spam filtering. Securence offers these features:

Spam/Phishing/Virus Quarantine – Instead of vanishing into the ether Securence quarantines questionable emails so you can see what is being held up, whitelist the sender/domain or report it as a false positive.

E-Mail Shadowing – need an instant backup of your e-mail? Accidentally delete something with no way to recover it? E-Mail shadowing keeps a copy of all of your emails and retrieval takes just a few seconds.

Detailed Mail Logs – Obsessively see everything about your e-mail delivery. This can come in very handy if an expected email does not arrive or if it contains a questionable attachment.

Ok, so how much does it cost?

Nobody likes this answer: it depends. Pricing is based on a per-account license and goes down the more accounts you have. For example, up to 10 accounts are $10 each per month. 11-20 accounts are $7 per month (these are examples, not actual prices). Please contact us for pricing information.
