Remote Desktop Gateway

Our remote desktop gateway allows you to connect to your desktop computer via remote
desktop (terminal services) without the need to
create a
VPN. Your connection is also
wrapped inside SSL (the same technology as used to encrypt
your internet banking session)
for security and so that you are able to use it from hotels and other public access connections.
