Reflection for IBM 2007 - Vista Certified and Security Conscious

  • 18 December, 2007 22:09

<p><i>New version combines security, user productivty and ease and flexibility of management</i></p>
<p>Attachmate partner CoreSight recently announced the availability of Reflection for IBM 2007, the first of Attachmate's next generation, built-for-Vista terminal emulation versions. This release builds on the recent efforts to povide emulation software that is security-focused but still delivers productivity benefits for users and manageability options for administrators.</p>
<p>Incorporating the comprehensive productivity and security feature sets found in previous <a href="http://www.coresight.com.au/partners/attachmate.html" target="-blank">Attachmate Reflection</a>, EXTRA! and INFOConnect host access offerings, Reflection for IBM 2007 strengthens mainframe security, maximizes IT flexibility and provides a set of features that significantly boost user productivity.</p>
<p><b>Strengthening Mainframe Security</b></p>
<p>Reflection’s market-leading security options provide the maximum level of protection for mission-critical host data. No other terminal emulation vendor can boast the breadth or depth of Attachmate’s security offering. This applies, not only to Reflection for IBM 2007 but the whole range including in Reflection for UNIX &amp; OpenVMS, Reflection for HP, Reflection X, EXTRA!, INFOConnect and Reflection for the Web.</p>
<p>For the technically-minded, there’s client-side support for SSL/TLS, whilst SSH, Kerberos and SOCKS security protocols are included within Reflection for IBM 2007. Also included are cryptographic modules built to meet US Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 and Department of Defense (DoD) Class 3 PKI Public Key-Enabled (PKE) application requirements.</p>
<p>For the rest of us, the inbuilt security features help clients address internal audit recommendations as well as the task of meeting applicable regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, and the Australian Privacy Act if and when the proposed changes are implemented.</p>
<p><b>Boosting End-User Productivity</b></p>
<p>But there’s more to successful emulation than security. With this in mind Reflection for IBM offers multiple features and tools designed to increase and improve end-user productivity, bringing modern enhancements to traditional green-screen host applications.</p>
<p>Examples include spell check, screen history, auto complete, scratch pad and recent typing - as well as helping users’ find and share information via tight integration with the 2007 Office applications, including Word, Outlook and PowerPoint 2007.</p>
<p>The claim of increased productivity is backed by a recent (October 2007) study conducted by independent testing firm The Tolly Group. The study found that Reflection for IBM 2007 increases user productivity up to five times over IBM Personal Communications (PCOM) and NetManage RUMBA for the performance test scenarios conducted. The Tolly report also found that Reflection for IBM 2007 delivered a broader user productivity feature set, with richer capabilities, than either IBM PCOM and NetManage RUMBA.</p>
<p>Reflection for IBM 2007 - as well as the entire Reflection range including Reflection for UNIX &amp; OpenVMS, Reflection for HP, Reflection for the Web, Reflection X, EXTRA!
