announced today that Information Security Products Guide, the industry's
leading information security research and advisory guide, has awarded HOB
Remote Desktop Virtual Private Network (HOB RD VPN) and HOBLink

HOB RD VPN, with four awards, achieves more than traditional SSL VPNs by
optimizing flexible software solutions without sacrificing security. As
a remote access solution, HOB RD VPN allows convenient and highly secure
access to centrally stored enterprise resources. HOB RD VPN decreases
administrative costs, increases productivity and enhances IT security.
HOBLink Mobile allows enterprises to securely access centrally stored
data from a smartphone. The advantage of HOBLink Mobile is that data is
never saved on the mobile device. This means data remains safe even in
the event of loss, theft or manipulation of the mobile device.
Furthermore, the data-exchange traffic is always encrypted over an
HOB-developed communications protocol. Communications is also improved
by compression and optimization methods, which ensure high performance
even over low bandwidths.
"We are pleased to receive recognition for HOB RD VPN and HOBLink Mobile
as powerful solutions that help organizations meet the need for anytime,
anywhere access to information while providing the security essential to
protecting their critical enterprise data," said Klaus Brandst�tter, CEO
of HOB. "It is an honor to receive such high commendation from the
industry. HOB remains dedicated to providing secure remote access
