Email? VPN? That's a must! ICQ? Peer-to-peer? Or downloading .avi files? No way! Different companies have different policies on what applications are allowed or should be banned.
Applications these days use random TCP/UDP ports. Administrators don´t want to spend ages creating traffic policy rules and blocking ports for each particular applications separately. Banning specific activities is what they really need. Kerio Control 8.2 introduces Content Filter, which simplifies management of what can or cannot get through the network. It enables blocking Kerio Control Web Filter categories* and diﬀerent types of application protocols regardless of the port they use. You can now also block upload and download by file names or file types. Choose a predefined rule or create your own pattern.
Learn how to block application protocols with the new Content Filter.

Adoption of the IPv6 protocol gets more and more popular. Kerio Control already acts as a stateful IPv6 firewall for both inbound and outbound IPv6 traffic and it supports IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC).
The latest 8.2 version brings security and user management further by introducing HTTP protocol inspection support, enabling antivirus scanning, Kerio Control Web Filter and content ﬁltering on the IPv6 protocol.
L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) is a protocol used to support Virtual Private Networks. It is also used by ISPs to deliver Internet to their customers.
8.2 version enables admins to set public address right in Kerio Control, providing easier configuration and direct connection to Internet lines. No modems needed anymore!
