In today’s highly digital world, employees use a variety of devices including tablets, smart phones, laptops and desktop computers. However, with all of these devices, applications and data must be centralized in order to ensure compliance and productivity needs are met.

This need can be met with a flexible remote access solution that allows access from any device to Windows Terminal Servers, also known as Windows Remote Desktop Servers, to applications residing on a central server in a local network, or worldwide.

Innovative solutions for platform-independent, Java-based access to MS Windows Terminal Servers makes business-critical data in Windows-based applications available to all authorized users, independent of the hardware type or operating system installed on the remote computer. As a result, such solutions embrace all the benefits of web-based and server-based computing. Indeed, server-based computing is presently regarded as the most flexible, efficient, and cost-effective solution for administration and application delivery.

There are many benefits of using platform-independent access to Windows Terminal Servers, including:

1. Reduction of Total Cost of Ownership and Total Cost of Application
This server-based architecture significantly decreases the total cost of ownership and the total cost of application, as it can be deployed on many different platforms and requires no special software or hardware.

2. Data Security
Safety is achieved via full support of modern authentication and strong encryption technologies (SSL up to 256-bit), which ensures secure data communication with the Windows Terminal Server. This is of vital importance, especially for companies that have to work with highly sensitive data, such as banks and insurance companies.

3. Load Balancing
Enterprises which employ server farms find that load balancing is of vital importance. In the server farm, the load balancing component optimally distributes the load among the different Windows Remote Desktop Servers. It can also allow the administrator to control the distribution of the workload to the farm servers according to the current needs. This leads to an improved performance, as well as a better protection against system failures, since when a server is interrupted, a re-connect is made to the next available server.

A highly valuable solution for remote server access is HOBLink JWT, a web-based RDP client for flexible remote access to Windows Remote Desktop Servers, VDI and desktop systems. HOBLink JWT is easy to use, customer configurable, highly secure, and extremely performant.

There are three chief components involved in the HOBLink JWT solution: the Windows Terminal Servers, the HOBLink JWT client, and for the server-based version, the Web Server.
