Aug 19, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Hob, a company focusing on pure software-based remote access solutions, announced the release of HobLink iWT, a new remote access solution that allows users access to centrally stored resources from their Apple iPad.
According to a release, HobLink iWT, similar to the RDP client for desktop PCs and notebooks HobLink JWT, offers the corresponding features and functions particularly optimized for the use with Apple iPads.
As mobile working has become more commonplace, employees are demanding the option to access company data using their device, whether it's a tablet, mobile phone, laptop or PC. Meanwhile, enterprises seek to implement mobile workplace tools that ensure the security of company resources. With HOBLink iWT and an Apple iPad secure remote access is possible to Windows Terminal Server (with RDS), VDI systems and desktop PCs.
HobLink iWT for Apple iPad offers a security system with multiple options for low, medium or high security level data encryption. Authentication methods can also be set according to individual needs and preferences. In addition to these options, when HOBLink iWT is combined with HOB's flag ship product, HOB RD VPN, additional security features like SSL encryption become available.
The application's flexibility begins with its work environment that supports a full on-screen Windows PC keyboard and displays data in both landscape and portrait modes. HobLink iWT allows users to multi-task and be highly productive with the option to have several parallel RDP sessions open. With no additional server components necessary, HobLink iWT provides additional flexibility for users and administrators alike. HobLink iWT also offers convenience with the Wake-on-LAN function, which allows users to turn on a desktop PC remotely via the Apple iPad. This convenient feature saves energy costs and supports green IT.
HobLink iWT includes a load balancing function that optimally distributes server requests to the existing hardware. This feature allows resources to be utilized as it connects the user to the least busy server. With the help of load balancing, over worked and slowly functioning servers are a rare occurrence.
"With the mobile workforce rapidly expanding, it's essential to accommodate the needs and devices of on-the-go employees, while also ensuring secure access via the Internet," said Klaus Brandstaetter, CEO of HOB. "HobLink iWT allows mobile employees to use their iPad to access company resources anytime and anywhere. This enhances business productivity and continuity and helps business build their competitive edge."
