Strong Performance with RDP
RDP is the leading industry standard for the transmission of graphical user interfaces. RDP is very powerful and offers a multitude of useful functions.
In a large-scale benchmark test, none of the many other protocols being tested against the latest version of RDP were superior or even comparable in functionality or performance.
In realistic benchmark tests between RDP and VNC protocol (RFB – Remote Framebuffer Protocol), VNC exchanged seven-times the amount of data. Also the comparison of RDP to the proven X-Protocol (X11, MIT) delivered results of a similar magnitude. The comparison of the exchanged data volume corresponds approximately to the ratio of the response-times, i.e., the amount of time the user waits, e.g., for the image to be refreshed.
Click – Start – Go: Remote Access with an RDP Client
You can use HOB X11Gate via an RDP client on any platform (Windows, Mac OS, Linux, thin client etc.) to access resources on your corporate Linux/Unix server. HOB X11Gate even allows simultaneous access for many different users. HOB recommends using the HOB RDP clients HOBLink JWT or HOBLink iWT, or the standard Windows RDP client. This provides you with an RDP encryption of up to 128 bits.

More Security Features while accessing from the Internet
If users need to use HOB X11Gate outside of the company LAN, HOB recommend you to combine HOB X11Gate with the comprehensive remote access suite HOB RD VPN. Therefore, HOB X11Gate only offers RDP encryption and it provides your IT system with limited security outside of the LAN. HOB RD VPN enables you the highest security standards and features like a secure SSL encryption, defined user roles and rights, multi-tenancy options and much more. The icing on the cake: HOB uses its own SSL implementation, the security of which is confirmed by the German Federal Office for Information Security with a certificate in acc. w. the Common Criteria EAL 4+. With HOB RD VPN no installation or administration rights are needed on the client side! You minimize the administration efforts and costs.
