We recently created new images and noticed the KONEA.EXE is installed. It also shows up with old images. Does anyone know what this is and is this from the kace machine. How do we remove it because it seems to be slowing down our appliance.

From what I can tell it has something to do with encryption between the clients and the kbox.  Looking at the program with a hex editor show lots of comments about establishing secure comm with the kbox and creating pem files.  The konea log shows stuff like this:
