Kerio Technologies, Inc. today announced that Mac Consulting Group, a leading Mac focused IT VAR in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, has attained Kerio Preferred Partner status. As a value-added reseller of Kerio IT infrastructure products for seven years, the company has demonstrated continuous sales growth and advancement within Kerio’s Business Partner Program.
Mac Consulting Group offers solutions for business networks, data storage, and all things Apple. As a member of the Apple Consultants Network, the VAR brings expertise in working with clients who have hybrid PC and Mac or Mac-specific office environments. As a provider of hosted email with Kerio Connect, Mac Consulting Group provides clients with an affordable solution for integrated calendaring and contact sharing, as well as resource scheduling, and public folders which increase collaboration.
“Many of our clients find it easier to have their email hosted on our shared mail server,” said Allen Hancock, president, Mac Consulting Group. “Our partnership with Kerio gives us access to a hosted solution that fits seamlessly into the Mac small business environment. It is easy to administer and can be maintained for a fraction of the cost of competitors.”
Recently Mac Consulting Group expanded its relationship with Modad LLC, a water treatment company in Louisiana. Already a Kerio Connect customer, Modad migrated to Kerio Control Box for its networking and IT security needs. After a hardware failure, Mac Consulting Group replaced Modad’s aging firewall with Kerio Control, a unified threat management solution. In addition to comprehensive protection against viruses, spyware and other malware, Kerio Control gave the company a robust intrusion detection and prevention system and the ability to monitor network activity through reporting.
“We believe that our Partners’ success translates into our success, and this mutually beneficial culture drives our partnership program,” said Mirek Kren, vice president, worldwide sales, Kerio Technologies. “Mac Consulting Group is a welcome addition, as they are dedicated to providing customized implementations of Kerio’s products to customers for simple, stable and secure business solutions.”
The Kerio Partner Program is designed for resellers, consultants and MSPs that are dedicated to selling and supporting simple IT solutions. The program offers comprehensive benefits such as on-line and in-person training programs, complimentary NFR licenses, no-cost certifications, and priority technical support. In addition, Kerio’s secure partner portal offers on-line orders, license and renewal management tools, an assortment of sales and marketing tools and other online resources. Kerio recently launched a new global partner locator with improved partner search capabilities that drives qualified leads to its Certified and Preferred partners. The company’s communication, collaboration and security solutions are offered exclusively via channel partners.
