A Secure, High-Performance and Cost-Effective Alternative to a VPN
Even with conventional computing devices, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is expensive and difficult to set up and manage. In the mobile world, however, they are even more of a headache due to VPN incompatibility with the plethora of new mobile devices. To start with, users have to configure VPN clients, which is not an intuitive or easy process. Users have to figure out the correct mobile client to upload if those clients are even available. After setting up a VPN, the clients oftentimes don’t work well with iOS or Android, causing lagging performance. Having many simultaneous VPN connections could potentially lead to even more performance degradation. A VPN is also a security risk when mobile devices not equipped with proper anti-virus software or patched correctly can be exploited to introduce malware into the corporate network.
Splashtop for Business provides a cost effective, secure, easy to manage and high performance alternative to a mobile VPN. Hosted in a company’s data center behind the firewall, it is highly secure. Splashtop is integrated with Active Directory for local authentication. With centralized control and management, IT managers can set user and device access policies, activate and deactivate users and devices, manage updates, and create or import SSL certificates. They can even view real-time connections and audit trails.
Splashtop has an intuitive desktop interface loved by millions of users. The experience makes it easy for mobile users to enjoy the benefits of working with their existing applications as if they were in front of their computers. The performance is even capable of streaming interactive 3D video at 30 frames per second. For mobile workers, this means increased productivity at their finger tips. Whether they are working from home or traveling out of the office, using a tablet or smart phone or desktop, Splashtop makes it super easy to access their desktop files or enterprise applications.

SUPERCHARGE REMOTING PROTOCOL
When we surveyed our customers for the top pain points they are solving with Splashtop for Business, finding an alternative to their existing remoting protocol comes to the top of the list. Many companies have relied on Microsoft RDP/RemoteFX, Virtual Network Computing, Citrix HDX, and other protocols for remote access. In the mobile world, however, these protocols don’t work well.
The companies oftentimes encounter the following shortcomings:
Lack of high level of security
Inability to deliver adequate performance to support multimedia applications
Poor support for the touch interface of mobile devices since the protocols were designed for keyboard to keyboard interaction
Inconsistent RDP/VNC applications across different mobile devices
Expensive and burdensome to set up gateways.
Splashtop for Business is "RDP on steroids," delivering a record-breaking sub-30ms latency performance over Wi-Fi. The performance is even capable of streaming interactive 3D video at 30 frames per second. For mobile workers, this means productivity at their finger tips! An added benefit is the fact that we deliver consistent experience across all mobile devices, something the other remoting protocols are incapable of doing.
Hosted in a company’s data center behind the firewall, Splashtop for Business enables businesses to increase user productivity and security while keeping costs low. Instead of downloading emails to their mobile devices, offsite employees can remotely access their Microsoft Outlook on their computers, and get full access to Outlook archives, folders and other applications. Field sales reps can access their company’s internal CRM system or the latest sales presentation. Telecommuters can work from home and access their desktop. Since no data is ever transferred to the mobile devices, all sensitive corporate data resides inside the firewall. Splashtop also works with top MDM vendors to encrypt and secure mobile data, providing a high level of data security.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) products such as VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft VDI give IT the ability to centrally deploy and manage desktop environments across an organization. The advantages of the VDI approach include a high level of security because the desktop images can be centrally managed and monitored by IT in a controlled environment. In addition, VDI delivers a high level of standardization since the images can be updated and deployed in a controlled and uniform manner.
Despite the appeal of VDI, many companies have struggled with finding a viable way to deploy VDI. This is due to a variety of reasons including:
High cost of shared storage on the back end
Complexity of implementing and managing a VDI project
Poor usability on mobile devices and the lack of robust support for touch features
Limited platform support for the broad range of mobile devices.
Splashtop for Business presents a cost-effective, easy-to-manage and high-performance alternative to VDI. Instead of taking months and oftentimes quarters to implement a VDI project, Splashtop can be up and running almost instantly at a fraction of the cost of a typical VDI project.
Loved by millions of users, Splashtop offers best-in-class remote access performance across iOS, Android, RIM, Windows, MAC, and other platforms. For IT managers, we offer many of the same benefits of VDI without the complexity of VDI management. They can centrally activate or deactivate users/devices, policy control, audit trail, and reporting.
For those companies who have already deployed VDl, Splashtop can be used as a "last mile" solution; a way for mobile workers to connect to their VDI corporate desktop remotely from their mobile devices.
IT REMOTE SUPPORT
Traditional IT remote support tools have their roots in providing remote helpdesk support and IT management. The original model involved connecting from one PC to another PC in a remote location, often via a low-bandwidth network. The user could then examine the files of the remote computer, check system settings and change configuration files, and run certain diagnostic and repair applications. Often the communication between the PCs was text based and rarely had multimedia capabilities.
With the advent of BYOD, the support of an ever mobile workforce presents a new set of challenges. IT needs to be able to remotely support a variety of mobile devices, through one, central point of control.
Using Splashtop for Business, IT can initiate secure remote connections from anywhere. Once connected to a remote system, IT can view a desktop and interact with it as if it were connected to a local network, reducing customer support costs and speeding issue resolution.
Splashtop does not require major network/server infrastructure changes or SaaS/cloud services to operate. No additional network hardware or software components (gateways or accelerators) are necessary to speed up remote user sessions.
With Splashtop, companies can also put in practice the sharing of computing resources. Support personnel can share a pool of desktop computers. While out of the office, they can use a mobile device to access files and data on the shared computers which helps to reduce support costs.
MOBILE INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD
Business depends on teamwork. But many collaboration tools only go so far. Going beyond where these tools leave off, interactive whiteboard is widely used in a variety of settings, including classrooms at all education levels and in corporate meeting rooms. Whether it’s for the classroom or meeting room, interactive whiteboard provides an effective tool for collaborating, including the creating, sharing, editingand capturing of information.
Splashtop for Business is a cost-effective solution to use interactive annotations to engage the audience. A teacher or a corporate presenter can walk around a room and interact with students/audience via the mobile whiteboard. We can turn a mobile device such as iPad into an interactive whiteboard. The output can be displayed to the class using a large screen projector. 50,000 teachers are using Splashtop on tablets to enrich the education experience for millions of students! A remote or traveling employee can point and click at a document during a presentation or make live edits in a work session with other team members.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE REMOTE 3D GRAPHICS ACCESS
For engineers and designers who regularly work with 3D graphics and videos, finding a high performance remote access solution is never easy. What’s needed is a solution equipped to support 3D/CAD design projects, high performance computing, remote medical consultations, simulation, modeling, visualization, and other graphics intensive projects.
Splashtop has worked with Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD/ATI to optimize 3D graphics performance to deliver the best in-class remote graphics capability. We are the only remote desktop solution capable of delivering 3D AutoCAD, animations, simulation, and medical images to a remote workforce while keeping all sensitive corporate data behind the corporate firewall. Remote graphics sharing users will be able to view 3D data in real time, create and design with richer visuals, and control and manipulate data while being remote. The patent-pending streaming technology delivers a responsive user experience with seamless video and synchronized audio. It even self optimizes for low-bandwidth connections.
POOLING OF RESOURCES
Cloud computing has popularized the concept of pooling IT resources across the data center to deliver IT services efficiently and cost effectively. The same concept applies to end user computing where a company can create a pool of computing devices to be shared across a group of people.
With Splashtop for Business, you gain a shared pool of physical or virtual desktops. An IT support or a QA group, for example, can log into any of the available machines from their home computer or a mobile device to perform necessary support or testing tasks, respectively. In a hospital, doctors can use iPads to remotely login into shared computer stations. Since Splashtop is hosted on premise behind the firewall, hospital staff can easily access patient records and comply with HIPAA.
"TABLETIZE" OFFICE, OUTLOOK, CORP APPS
According to IDC, one-sixth of information workers use a tablet for work currently. That number is expected to increase to one-third in a year. Forty percent of executive workers use tablets for work today, with two-thirds expected to do so within the next 12 months. Another report by Forrester Research estimates that 375 million tablets will be purchased in 2016, with one-third of those being sold directly to businesses.
With enterprises rushing to find a suitable BYOD strategy to help mobilize their workforce, many will move to “tabletize” their offices. Splashtop for Business is an important piece to help implement this strategy.
With Splashtop, there is no need to:
Buy and use an incompatible Office viewer and editors on mobile devices. Simply remote in to your Microsoft Office that has already been licensed.
Download confidential emails to your mobile devices. Just remote in to your Microsoft Outlook which includes archives and folders.
Re-develop all the corporate apps, IE-compatible web apps, and legacy apps for mobile devices. Let Splashtop instantly redirect all of them to your mobile workforce.
Teachers can now access their computers, and teach from all four corners of the classroom to bring the lesson to their students. Administrators are able to get out from behind their desks and be mobile across the school or district yet still access the same applications and data.
"By using Splashtop, our 500 teachers can now carry an iPad around the classroom, accessing PC programs and projecting to their SMART boards while interacting with students in an hands-on, meaningful way."

Government institutions can allow field agents to tap into files and use applications without downloading confidential information. Mobile devices, in effect, become thin clients. IT departments no longer have to worry about locking and wiping a mobile device for security purposes since all data remains inside the company. IT can easily revoke permissions on any device that has been compromised.
"Our employees can directly update their files on their desktop computer from a tablet while they're out of the office. Security has been strengthened and our costs reduced."
