Sunbelt to acquire the Kerio Personal Firewall. Link here.


  • The acquisition is expected to be finalized by the end of this month.   
  • The Kerio Personal Firewall will be re-branded on an interim basis as the “Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall”. 
  • All existing customers of the Kerio Personal Firewall will be able to receive support through Sunbelt once the acquisition is completed. 
  • Upon the close of the deal, Sunbelt will also announce new reduced pricing for the full version of the product and a variety of special offers for both Kerio and Sunbelt customers. 
  • Additionally, Sunbelt will continue Kerio’s tradition of providing a basic free version for home users.
  • During the transition period, Kerio will continue to support the product and users are encouraged to download the Kerio Personal Firewall from the Kerio website at until the acquisition is completed.

I am, frankly, thrilled with this acquisition.  I’ve used all the big name firewalls, and this is my personal favorite  I’m not knocking the others, as there are some outstanding firewalls out there (ZA and Agnitum come to mind).  I just really like how it operates. It’s straightforward, very effective and also has cool features like ad blocking and intrusion prevention. 

The deal will be closing at the end of the month and at that point we’ll reduce the price.  Sunbelt customers will also get the opportunity to buy the Kerio Firewall at a discount and we’ll also be offering Sunbelt products to Kerio users at a discount.  Such a deal. 

From a technical standpoint, this product is pretty amazing. We were blown away during our technical due diligence with the quality of the coding and the many security features built into the product.  This product is hot.

This should all be wrapped up in a couple of weeks and then you’ll be able to download the new Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall.
