We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features are its ease of use, excellent pricing, and it is platform agnostic.""Kerio Connect is secure, flexible, and easy to control from the user interface. It has many security features able to be controlled from one place, such as anti-spam. I have found it very convenient. Additionally, you can analyze log files and share folders which is helpful.""We have contacted technical support a handful of times and received some assistance.""The user interface is good."

"Mimecast has some good support services in place.""The security is pretty good, and that's why we're going to upgrade to an even more advanced package. We used it when we had a power issue, and it works. It has been pretty reliable, and the support has been quite good.""The Large File Send feature comes in handy when you have to send fairly large attachments."

Cons
"It could be simpler to use and install, but I still wouldn't use it because there isn't a compelling use case.""The solution could improve the redundancy because we only have one copy of the Kerio Connect server on our hardware. The next step for us is to move to the cloud and if Kerio does not have a cloud version available they should release one""Most of our clients use Outlook and Kerio Connect. Occasionally, Kerio can be a bit slow. They could make it faster to get onto the web interface without so much load time. It's just slow with Outlook, however, for some reason.""I would like to see better support from their support team."

"The interface and the documentation could be improved. They can also include some more training resources and content like video. While setting things up, I had to search for the information quite a bit. It took me time to find the correct way to do something. The information is there, but it is sort of all over the place. They can create a better help knowledge base or help portal. It retains your email for 45 days. They can maybe increase this duration.""Technical support has been slower than it was in the past, likely due to the pandemic."
