Let's face it. You probably aren't going to change your firewall settings on a daily basis. Hopefully you will be upgrading or adjusting rules based on new employees or threat vectors as required, but for the most part you will let the silent guardian of your network do its job. It is easy enough to save the custom configuration you carefully created in the unlikely event of a hardware failure or for importation on to another Control Box in the organization. But why not make it even easier?
If you have not yet tried Samepage, you only have yourself to blame. It takes a few seconds to sign up and costs you nothing as long as you keep it under 10GB of storage. You can create a custom webpage for every piece of hardware or software on your network and store the license and warranty information, photos, serial numbers, PDF manuals, links to the vendor support and KB pages, and even flash training videos. And with the new Configuration Backup feature in Kerio Control 8.1, you can automatically upload your settings daily. Simply check the box to enable this feature in Advanced Options, enter your Samepage user name, password and URL and you are good to go. Tweak the settings for VPN and QoS to your hearts content without having to worry if you remembered to back it up. If you are extra paranoid, like all good security managers are, you can backup on the fly with the click of a button.
With our Desktop Synchronization feature in Samepage, your backup files can be automatically synched to your laptop whenever you login. This ensures you will have the most current version handy when you need to import your configuration onto a Kerio Control appliance . Kerio Control 8.1 also includes VPN failover, SNMP reporting, and IP tools. Get it now.
