HAWTHORNE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HOB, the market leader in software-based remote access solutions, provides a comprehensive product portfolio that includes state of the art SSL VPN and IPsec VPN solutions. HOB solutions impress with highest security standards and innovative features “Made in Germany”.
While both SSL and IPsec VPNs provide secure remote access to corporate resources, they do so in different ways, which affects an IT administrator’s decision to implement one or the other. Typically, this decision is based on the kind of business functions that require a VPN. For example, if business operations require flexibility as they rely on remote workers’ access to a company network, an SSL-based solution is optimal. On the other hand, static connections where communications partners change less frequently, such as a bank with several satellite offices, may choose to deploy an IPsec VPN which can provide full network access between branches and the headquarters. As a leader in the secure remote access industry that strives to meet the needs of a wide variety of organizations, HOB offers both a SSL VPN solution with HOB RD VPN and an IPsec gateway with HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway.
HOB RD VPN
HOB RD VPN is a comprehensive solution that can be easily adapted to meet the needs of all enterprises in today’s virtual, mobile and cloud-based environments. There is no installation required on the client side - a simple web browser is all that is needed for employees to access corporate data and resources from remote locations. This pure software solution eliminates the need for the installation of expensive hardware, simplifying accessibility and reducing costs. Businesses can custom configure HOB RD VPN solutions to accommodate changing demands on IT infrastructure, while maintaining complete control over access to corporate networks. HOB RD VPN also supports an extensive array of devices and operating systems.
HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway
HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway is a pure software solution that offers maximum scalability, as it can be easily integrated into any existing IT infrastructure. Supported by standard IPsec protocols and encryption methods, HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway guarantees the highest security standards with strong encryption and authentication methods to protect data communications over an IPsec VPN. Additionally, HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway works harmoniously with IPsec clients of leading manufacturers, including HOBLink VPN Anywhere Client, the patented IPsec client by HOB. The HOBLink VPN Anywhere Client doesn’t require any installation or additional drivers to connect to an IPsec gateway. When connected for the first time, the pre-configured software is downloaded to the client device and the user can immediately access the company network.
“In order to meet the evolving needs of our customers, we’ve made it a priority to provide a broad range of remote access tools that best suit their needs,” said Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “Through HOB RD VPN and HOBLink VPN 2.1 Gateway, which utilize SSL VPN and IPsec VPN respectively, businesses can determine which solution better suits their IT needs, without forsaking security.”
