HOB Honored as Three-Time Winner with Government Security Award for 2014

HOB, one of the market leaders in pure software-based remote access solutions, announced that Security Products Magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market, has awarded HOB Remote Desktop Virtual Private Network (HOB RD VPN), HOBLink iWT and HOBLink Mobile a total of three 2014 Govies Government Security Awards.

Established in 2009, the coveted Govies Awards honor excellence in government security products by evaluating offerings based on numerous criteria such as features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality and design.

HOB’s flagship products, HOB RD VPN, HOBLink iWT and HOBLink Mobile received recognition in the following categories:

  • Gold Award for HOB RD VPN in the Data Security Category
  • Platinum Award for HOBLink iWT in the IT Software/Hardware Category
  • Platinum Award for HOBLink Mobile in the Mobile Security Apps Category

HOB RD VPN outperforms traditional SSL VPNs through its optimization of flexible software solutions and security. As a leading remote access solution, HOB RD VPN provides convenient and highly secure remote access to centrally-stored corporate resources. Consequently, HOB RD VPN diminishes administrative costs, boosts productivity and enhances IT security. These benefits, alongside the additional security provided by HOB RD VPN’s Common Criteria certification, ensure success in government, enterprise, healthcare and educational institutions.

HOBLink iWT offers users easy and convenient RDP Remote Access from their Apple iPad to Windows Servers, VDI systems and desktop PCs. Once the application is downloaded from the Apple App Store, users have a mechanism for secure remote access to off-site and cloud databases. Additionally, HOBLink iWT uses Wake-on-LAN so the satellite device does not need to be powered on in order to be accessed.

HOBLink Mobile is an app that provides a convenient and secure mechanism for employees to access enterprise data from a mobile device. Unlike other apps that pose security risks, HOBLink Mobile does not download or store sensitive data to the device. Only the data that is required for displaying information is sent to the mobile device. IT administrators benefit from knowing that sensitive business data will remain inaccessible to unauthorized users if a device is lost or stolen.

“We are thrilled to have our flagship remote access products recognized as effective solutions for organizations looking to enhance security, while also meeting the need for anytime, anywhere access to critical enterprise data,” said Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “Government institutions handle massive quantities of sensitive information, and it is an honor to be regarded in such high esteem by the industry. We at HOB are proud to have developed products that are held to the high standards of government, and remain dedicated to providing secure remote access solutions.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
