HOB has launched HOB X11Gate, a new remote access solution that allows users fast and easy access to centrally stored data and applications on Unix/Linux Servers.

HOB X11Gate is the result of an extensive development process, and offers users and administrators a flexible and secure solution to remotely access Unix/Linux servers. Solutions similar to HOB X11Gate tend to be less efficient due to slower protocols and the misuse of bandwidth. HOB X11Gate transforms the X-Window-Protocol, which is normally used to remotely access Unix/Linux servers, into the higher performing RDP-Protocol. As such, HOB X11Gate requires less bandwidth, which significantly increases the speed of the remote access, making remote working more effective and convenient.

With HOB X11Gate, Linux and Unix servers can be accessed from any RDP-client running on any operating system. Moreover, multiple users can gain simultaneous access to the target sever. The RDP encryption guarantees the security of transmitted data, and as a pure software solution, HOB X11Gate can be deployed easily into any existing IT-infrastructure.

Additional features include increased user productivity, more flexibility for users and administrators and reduced commuting costs. Also, HOB X11Gate is designed to support IPv4 and IPv6, which guarantees that it can also be used in future networks. If a session gets disconnected, HOB X11Gate will automatically reconnect to the server, providing an uninterrupted user experience.

When combined with HOB RD VPN, the comprehensive secure remote access solution from HOB, data transmitted via HOB X11Gate will be SSL-encrypted, thus offering a maximum of security for company files. HOB RD VPN was recently certified according to the Common Criteria EAL4+ Standards by the German Federal Office for Information Security. This certification bolsters the confidence and trust that businesses have when using German software from HOB to protect their enterprise data. The combination of HOB X11Gate and HOB RD VPN allows for remote access to X- applications via a standard web browser, and is designed to provide universal secure remote access to the widest possible range of applications.

With the mobile workforce rapidly expanding, it's essential to accommodate the needs of on-the-go employees, while also ensuring secure access via the Internet, said Klaus Brandstaetter, CEO of HOB. HOB X11Gate enables simple and convenient remote access for large corporations with heterogeneous client and server architectures. This enhances business productivity and continuity and helps business build their competitive edge.
