CADOLZBURG, Germany - Wednesday, July 31st 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HOB, a leading provider of secure remote access and business connectivity solutions today announced that it has joined F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Program (TAP). By partnering with F5, HOB gains the scale and flexibility of F5’s BIG-IP® Access Policy Manager® as an enforcement and authentication proxy. This helps customers maximize the value and ease of deploying browser-based RDP access.

“HOB is focused on providing business connectivity solutions that provide secure remote access to company resources for all kinds of customers and industries – from small companies to large enterprises,” said Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “Not all solutions require a traditional approach to administration rights and software installation on the client. Our customers value our commitment to securing companies’ IT infrastructures and simultaneously facilitating easy and flexible remote access. Aligning our technology with F5 solutions will help us deliver an optimized user experience for customers. We are also glad to participate in F5’s Agility conference this week in San Francisco, allowing F5 customers and partners to take a closer look at the benefits of deploying our solutions together.”

Through the F5 partnership, HOB customers will be able to implement remote access solutions for a variety of target systems—e.g., Windows Server, Apple Macs, and mainframes—without running into common administrative rights issues and without installing any software on the client side. In addition, customers receive a hardened, extremely secure and very high performance remote access solution that can be flexibly adapted to individual customer requirements. With its partnership programs, F5 promotes interoperability and continued innovation with HOB, and provides a framework for ongoing collaboration.

“F5 welcomes HOB to our Technology Alliance Program,” said Mark Vondemkamp VP of Security Product Management and Marketing at F5 Networks. “We structure our partner programs to align with companies that provide additional strategic benefits to our customers. HOB has been providing thin-client and clientless access technologies and solutions for many decades across a variety of operating systems and environments. With our BIG-IP Access Policy Manager product, HOB customers can further optimize endpoint performance while unifying access capabilities across the business.”
