[February 04, 2014]

Secure and Performant Mobile Working with Apple iPad and HOBLink iWT

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

Mobile working is the new trend which offers many benefits for employees as well as employers. Employees enjoy the comfort of being able to work flexibly, 24/7 and from anywhere, preferably, of course, with modern mobile devices such as the Apple (News - Alert) iPad. The demand for the ability to work productively with tablets is on the rise. Doing a quick check of your e-mail is one thing, but these days you can also use your iPad to work remotely on Windows Servers. With HOBLink iWT, HOB offers you a secure, highly performant remote access app for the iPad, which meets all the requirements.

Working with HOBLink iWT, Secure and Mobile

HOBLink iWT provides you with secure and performant remote access to Windows Terminal Servers, VDI Systems and PCs from an Apple iPad. HOBLink iWT requires no extra hardware or software on the server side. Directly after installation, configuration and the appropriate authentication, the user can comfortably access the central enterprise resources. If the connection is interrupted, a simple reconnect to the session can be made. Another advantage: several sessions can be started in parallel.

With HOBLink iWT, security is of the utmost importance. This solution provides you not only with various encryption levels for your individual needs, but also has integrated, flexibly definable authentication methods. All data are transmitted encrypted. More than that, at no time is any data saved to the mobile device. Thus, no data can fall into the hands of a third pary - even if the iPad or iPhone (News - Alert) is lost or stolen. All resources remain securely in the enterprise. This eases the workload for your IT administrator, as there is less work in managing the devices, because data security is already given! And the icing on the cake: Even if your desktop PC is switched off, using the integrated Wake-on-LAN function, you can remotely boot it at any time. This offers you not only convenience, it also effectively saves energy costs - truly Green IT!

Further Security Features in Combination with HOB RD VPN

HOBLink iWT, in combination with the HOB WebSecureProxy as part of HOB RD VPN, provides you with additional security features. Hereby, the HOB WebSecureProxy serves as a security gateway between HOBLink iWT and the Windows Server farms. The entire communication between HOBLink iWT and the HOB WebSecureProxy is transmitted SSL/TLS-encrypted. The special feature: Your Windows Servers do not have to be directly reachable over the Internet, but can be securely placed in a LAN. There is also an optional user authentication with SafeWord Premier Access or RSA (News - Alert) SecurID, when these components are installed on the servers.
