"The solution is easy to use and the cloud version has taken a lot of challenges away from the user.""All of the Microsoft Exchange Online is very useful, such as the sections, the information protection, and the mail flows.""The online version is faster, as it is a cloud instance. We can have massive mailbox capacity: 100 GB per user, which is huge. We can't provision such capacity internally, as the company would get burnt out paying for mailbox storage.""The solution is stable.""I have found the interface to be user-friendly and the overall simplicity valuable features.""Exchange Online is a straightforward cloud-based application.

Cons
"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""I would like to see better support from their support team.""It could be simpler to use and install, but I still wouldn't use it because there isn't a compelling use case.""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."

"The solution should have a stand-alone application instead of us having to go through an internet browser.""The price could be cheaper.""The solution could improve with the integrations with some of the known applications is still not possible, there must be more connectors.""The solution should have more integration with other platforms.""The integration could be better if it could integrate well with other products and software.""This product is too complex to use.""I would prefer an anti-malware functionality in at least the basic version.""I don't like it in general. It sort of has that Microsoft flavor to it, which is just the style they use and the way they color things and lay them out."
