HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HOB Inc., the market leader in pure software-based remote access solutions, today revealed another use case for its flagship product HOB RD VPN. More businesses are designing and implementing comprehensive business continuity strategies, and HOB RD VPN is a trusted method of providing secure remote access to ensure uninterrupted operations in emergency situations. With HOB RD VPN, employees can work off-site and access company files and applications via a standard web browser while organizations avoid the negative effects of disrupted business operations.
This use case scenario was the focus of a recent HOB survey, “An Inside Look at Business Continuity”. The survey analyzed employee knowledge and understanding of emergency procedures in the event of natural or man-made disasters.
When asked if their place of employment has emergency procedures in place to ensure access to company information and data in the event of a disaster, 40% of respondents in Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco stated their company either does not have systems in place to protect access to data or that they are unaware of the existence of these systems. This survey finding was one of several that pointed to the increased vulnerability of companies that do not have comprehensive systems in place to facilitate business continuity. It also highlights the need for IT solutions that connect employees to the information and data they require to perform their job functions.
HOB RD VPN does exactly that. It provides employees access to company files and applications from anywhere at any time, including emergency situations. Employees can work from home, or any other location where they have an internet connection, and are safe from any disaster.
As a pure software solution, HOB RD VPN is highly scalable. Using HOB solutions, businesses have the opportunity to immediately remedy the consequences caused by disasters and increase the number of licenses on short notice. This is also possible if a business experiences significant growth and must adjust their business continuity plan accordingly. Since HOB RD VPN supports all operating systems on the client side, it can be guaranteed that employees will be able to continue their work from any device that is connected to the internet including PCs, notebooks and tablets.
Additionally, HOB RD VPN does not require a large capital investment or overhaul of IT infrastructure, which allays the fear that implementing a business continuity plan is cost prohibitive. With multiple editions, HOB RD VPN fulfills the individual needs of a wide variety of businesses, granting the freedom to create a system custom-tailored to their requirements.
“Businesses today rely on the ability for employees to access and share information in order to maintain ongoing operations,” said Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “HOB RD VPN provides a secure, flexible and cost-effective solution that helps businesses to continue functioning and withstand the negative consequences of disrupted operations by enabling employees to remain functional in emergency situations.”
