HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From August 4-6, HOB GmbH & Co. KG, one of the market leaders in secure remote access solutions, will attend the F5 Agility event in New York City to present its latest product innovation, HOBLink JWT for F5® BIG-IP Access Policy Manager®. HOB will perform live demos of HOBLink JWT and showcase its capabilities within an F5 BIG-IP deployment. The F5 Agility conference will take place at the New York Marriott Marquis from August 4-August 6, 2014.
The F5 Agility event provides a forum for IT professionals from a variety of industries — including healthcare, education, banking and finance — to showcase their latest innovations. This year, IT experts will explore topics such as IT security, cloud computing, software defined networking (SDN) and mobility. The New York Agility conference marks HOB’s third recent appearance at an F5 show. In March, HOB presented its product portfolio to an Australian audience at the Agility event in Coolum, Queensland, and in June, HOB joined F5’s EMEA Agility event in Copenhagen, Denmark.
As a gold sponsor of the New York event, HOB will present HOBLink JWT — an advanced RDP client for F5 BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM®) deployments. This solution provides BIG-IP APM users with a remote desktop client, enabling communication with Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Services. HOB’s RDP solution is platform-independent and requires no client-side installation, thus reducing IT administration efforts and total cost of ownership. HOBLink JWT is a purely software-based solution allowing existing physical or virtual IT infrastructure to be leveraged without sacrificing security. HOBLink JWT is now supported via F5’s iApps® technology and can be easily implemented with existing F5 deployments.
“The HOB team is thrilled to be gold sponsor of F5 Agility New York. We are excited to demonstrate our solutions for the American audience, and we are very proud of the technology partnership with F5,” said Siegfried Plommer, VP International Sales at HOB. Mr. Plommer will personally demonstrate HOBLink JWT to visitors at the HOB booth.
