E-Mail Hosting

Sononaco has partnered with Kerio, a leader provider of enterprise collaboration tools as a low-cost alternative to large-scale email providers. With Kerio you do not need to sacrifice quality nor privacy.

An alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Zimbra, Kerio meets the needs of small-to-mid-sized businesses. Kerio 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.

Use it everywhere

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 the like. 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 webmail client.

Privacy is important

Powerful security is built 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.

Simple is good

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 but without its complexity and cost. Management is easy (and easier when we do all of it!). 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.

Kerio Features & Functions

Fighting Spam

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 provides email shadowing, so if your mail server is unreachable for any reason mail will be held 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.

* BitDefender costs an additional $10 per account per month

Pay-as-you-go

Pay-as-you-go accounts are also available for $25 per month which include 5GB of mailbox storage and includes all of the features of Kerio (e-mail, chat, calendar, reminders, backup).

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.

Robust yet simple administration

Looking to handle the administration and management duties yourself? Kerio makes it simple and hassle-free.
