Deployment of HOBLink DASH

HOBLink DASH is easy to use: The HOBLink DASH application is started automatically after login and connects to HOB RD VPN in the company’s central offices. After successful authentication, for example, with domain name, user name and password, the files are automatically synchronized. Each user automatically receives the latest version of the synchronized files. HOBLink DASH always synchronizes the files are on each device after the last change has been saved.

User Settings in HOB RD VPN

The administrator configures HOBLink DASH in the user administration component of HOB RD VPN, where the configurations are centrally stored. Using File Control, a finely grained, detailed configuration of which data and directories are to be synchronized can be made. User access rights can also be configured centrally in HOB RD VPN. For example, a user can share several files and directories with various other users and, at the same time, use a directory with only personal, protected access.

Security and Performance with HOB RD VPN

HOBLink DASH uses SSL encryption and, optionally, data compression when transferring files. You can also set the synchronization direction. Additionally, synchronization rules can also be defined; for example, no compression for certain file types. Of particular interest is the option of running virus checking in the WebSecureProxy of the exchanged files (option, requires HOB RD VPN blue edition).
