HOBLink JWT: The Advanced RDP Client for Remote Access to Windows Remote Desktop Server

Remote access to Windows Server with Remote Desktop Services (Windows Remote Desktop Server) is not new – There are many clients that enable this remote access. With HOBLink JWT, HOB offers a hardened client that can do much more than RDP remote access. Especially as regards security, adaptability and flexibility, HOBLink JWT leaves nothing to be desired – for IT administrators as well as users. You can also download a free e-Paper from HOB on this subject.

Security: A Must for Remote Access

Encrypted data transfer is now standard. HOBLink JWT provides you more security mechanisms, some of which are unique. IT administrators can, for example, exactly determine which local drives, directories or sub-directories are available in the remote session. Solutions here often work after the principle “all or nothing.” For certificate-based authentication, HOBLink JWT also supports Smartcard Redirection.

The A and Z: Easy Integration in Existing IT Infrastructure

As HOBLink JWT is purely software-based, it can be easily integrated into existing IT infrastructures, e.g., environments of third-party manufacturers such as appliances or cloud portals. Remote access is had with the fast RDP protocol over a Java-capable browser. Administrator rights or installation on the client are not needed – no matter if the operating system is Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. And, the most various platforms are accessible – Windows Remote Desktop Server, Desktop PCs or virtual systems, optionally Macs or Unix/Linux systems can be remotely accessed.

Intuitive Operability Reduces Stress Level – for IT Administrators and Users

With IT administrators HOBLink JWT scores with central administration, configuration and management. HOBLink JWT is delivered with a default configuration which often doesn’t need to be modified. Thanks to the “zero touch client” principle, the individual access devices need not be touched – A big advantage when not all these devices are centrally located.

HOBLink JWT pleases users with an intuitively operable GUI. The user simply opens an Internet browser, enters the defined URL and authenticates himself. Now he has quick and easy access to the desired enterprise data. The HOB Load Balancing mechanism spreads the load of all sessions evenly over the available resources. Users profit from a performant and extremely stable connection. With the integrated Wake-on-LAN, the target PC can be remotely activated in the event it was switched off.

The Open Group and BriefingsDirect recently assembled a distinguished panel at The Open Group Boston Conference 2014 to explore the practical implications and limits of the Internet of Things. This so-called Internet of Things means more data, more cloud connectivity and management, and an additional tier of “things” that are going to be part of the mobile edge -- and extending that mobile edge ever deeper into even our own bodies. Yet the Internet of Things is more than the “things” – it me...
Come learn about what you need to consider when moving your data to the cloud. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Skyla Loomis, a Program Director of Cloudant Development at Cloudant, will discuss the security, performance, and operational implications of keeping your data on premise, moving it to the cloud, or taking a hybrid approach. She will use real customer examples to illustrate the tradeoffs, key decision points, and how to be successful with a cloud or hybrid cloud solution.
For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business. The landline has been a lifeline to customers and colleagues as the primary means of communication – even as email threatened to render the telephone obsolete. For some purposes, like conference calling, there was simply no substitute. That is, until a few years ago. With all due respect and apologies to Mr. Alexander Graham Bell, the desk phone is becoming just one solution, out of many devices, used for the modern...
Software is eating the world. Companies that were not previously in the technology space now find themselves competing with Google and Amazon on speed of innovation.

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, B...
