HOB RD VPN 1.4
Central Server, Data and Applications On Demand - Flexible, Secure, Cost-Effective
Today's enterprises are facing a bigger challenge than ever before: Highest possible efficiency in all areas. In the area of IT, this is done primarily through the implementation of two measures: Centralization of the applications while at the same time de-centralizing the workstations.
Especially the supplementation or even partial replacement of traditional office workplaces with home offices helps not only the enterprise, but also accommodates the workforce: According to a recent survey, around two-thirds of a country's workforce prefer to work at home on a regular basis. Managers on business trips and sales representatives or service personnel also have to work outside of the company premises. In addition to this, many enterprises want or need to integrate customers or partners into their corporate networks in order to ensure even faster and better service performance.
Secure Remote Access with HOB - Your Competitive Advantage!The ability to securely, economically, and reliably access all of the most widely varying enterprise resources from diverse platforms and terminals is, now and in the future, a not-to-be underestimated competitive advantage.
The HOB RD VPN software solution is specially designed for secure remote access over TCP/IP networks, i.e., Internet, WiFi / WLAN or UMTS, to diverse resources in enterprise networks. This is a universal software-based solution for secure remote access from the corporate network all the way through to the front end.
It makes absolutely no difference whether your data and applications are on a Windows Terminal Server, virtualized windows systems, Unix/Linux servers, a traditional host, or even a personal computer. Depending on the configuration and the user's authorization level, you and your staff can access and edit files, exchange them with the target system and print them. And they can do this anywhere, just as if they were sitting in the office at their company PC! With HOB RD VPN you can also secure all communication over WLAN/WiFi or within the enterprise network.
HOB RD VPN can be used to replace traditional, rather inflexible hardware appliance solutions with a flexible and quickly adaptable "software appliance" - in light of increasing virtualization, this advantage is not to be underestimated!
HOB has in HOB RD VPN a first-rate technical achievement: On standard mid-sized servers this solution has been tested successfully with 10,000 concurrent sessions.
Excellent Cost Savings!
One unique aspect of HOB RD VPN is that it only needs to be installed once on a central server in the enterprise network. Once this is done, any authorized user can use virtually any Internet-capable client machine (PC, Laptop, etc.) to access their data an Internet browser. Printing, with remote solutions often a source of aggravation, is no problem with HOB RD VPN. Users can simply print remotely-accessed files from their local printer, and with HOB's easy-print solution there is no need to have each individual printer's driver installed on the server.
High administration costs and the necessity of constantly updating clients are now a thing of the past!
Reliable, Secure Connections!
HOB has merged the advantages of conventional SSL- and IPsec-VPNs and created a solution that fulfils the highest security and compliance requirements. This is done through encrypted connections and accepted authentication methods such as tokens, Smartcards and SSL client certificates. Furthermore, HOB RD VP can be so configured that a connection to the enterprise network is only established after it has detected that the connecting terminal has active and up-to-date antivirus software.
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.
