HAWTHORNE, N.Y – May 22, 2014 – HOB, one of the market leaders in pure software-based remote access solutions, announced that Security Products Magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market, has awarded HOB Remote Desktop Virtual Private Network (HOB RD VPN), HOBLink iWT and HOBLink Mobile a total of three 2014 Govies Government Security Awards.
Established in 2009, the coveted Govies Awards honor excellence in government security products by evaluating offerings based on numerous criteria such as features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality and design.
HOB’s flagship products, HOB RD VPN, HOBLink iWT and HOBLink Mobile received recognition in the following categories:
HOB RD VPN outperforms traditional SSL VPNs through its optimization of flexible software solutions and security. As a leading remote access solution, HOB RD VPN provides convenient and highly secure remote access to centrally-stored corporate resources. Consequently, HOB RD VPN diminishes administrative costs, boosts productivity and enhances IT security. These benefits, alongside the additional security provided by HOB RD VPN’s Common Criteria certification, ensure success in government, enterprise, healthcare and educational institutions.
HOBLink iWT offers users easy and convenient RDP Remote Access from their Apple iPad to Windows Servers, VDI systems and desktop PCs. Once the application is downloaded from the Apple App Store, users have a mechanism for secure remote access to off-site and cloud databases. Additionally, HOBLink iWT uses Wake-on-LAN so the satellite device does not need to be powered on in order to be accessed.
HOBLink Mobile is an app that provides a convenient and secure mechanism for employees to access enterprise data from a mobile device. Unlike other apps that pose security risks, HOBLink Mobile does not download or store sensitive data to the device. Only the data that is required for displaying information is sent to the mobile device. IT administrators benefit from knowing that sensitive business data will remain inaccessible to unauthorized users if a device is lost or stolen.
“We are thrilled to have our flagship remote access products recognized as effective solutions for organizations looking to enhance security, while also meeting the need for anytime, anywhere access to critical enterprise data,” said Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “Government institutions handle massive quantities of sensitive information, and it is an honor to be regarded in such high esteem by the industry. We at HOB are proud to have developed products that are held to the high standards of government, and remain dedicated to providing secure remote access solutions.”
