RUMBA FTP is a graphical FTP client that combines ease-of-use with secured file transfer. With a Windows Explorer look-and-feel and support for Secure Shell (SSH) and SSL-based FTP, RUMBA FTP offers a winning combination of usability and security. RUMBA FTP displays two views - local and remote - supporting drag-and-drop file or folder transfer from one view to another or within the same view. It encrypts your logins, passwords and files with standards-based security protocols: SSH using Secure FTP (SFTP), SSL (FTPS) and HTTP. RUMBA FTP connects to a wide variety of FTP servers, including UNIX/Linux, iSeries, MVS and Windows. RUMBA FTP will open multiple remote sessions at the same time for server-to-server file transfers and automatically open remote files with associated file extensions.
More host access options
Micro Focus RUMBA provides access to a broad range of host types, including IBM mainframe, IBM iSeries, Hewlett-Packard, UNIX, and VAX. Because you need only one vendor and one application for a multi-host environment, deployment and support is faster, easier, and more cost effective.
Increased user productivity
Micro Focus RUMBA enables business users to work productively with host-based information within a user-friendly Windows environment or from a familiar Web browser. It provides all the core functionality of a Windows-based emulator, from multisession support and host printer emulation to a variety of file transfer and host-based graphics options.
Client-to-host communication is secure. No major architectural changes are required for deployment because Micro Focus RUMBA software adapts to the highest level of security available via your organization's existing host security, network security, firewalls, and virtual private networks (VPNs). Micro Focus RUMBA products contain FIPS certified Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Secure Shell (SSH) technology for secure terminal and FTP sessions to host computers.
iSeries single sign-on
Micro Focus RUMBA iSeries single sign-on feature streamlines client authentication and reduces administrative costs. Administrators are able to configure and manage a single login process that extends to the iSeries system through the use of Kerberos technology, which is also standardized and integrated by IBM and Microsoft. Centralized user profile management simplifies host access administration and makes monitoring and compliance reporting easier.
Customization and ease of use
Comprehensive productivity and ease-of-use features reduce the need for support and training. System administrators can even custom configure the menu bar of the Micro Focus RUMBA window to meet exact requirements of each user or organization.
Robust, flexible technology
Micro Focus RUMBA supports display and host application printing, native file transfer, and flexible keyboard mapping. The software also includes an intuitive, point-and-click macro editor.
VBA-type scripting support
Enables automation via scripting to improve end-user productivity and streamline business processes. Support the execution of existing Micro Focus OnWeb Web-to-Host, ViewNow, and/or competitive scripts on the Micro Focus Micro Focus RUMBA PC-to-Host platform, reducing the administrative costs associated with multi-client-type installations and consolidations.
Custom application development
Support for EHLLAPI and COM interfaces provides maximum flexibility and convenience for programmers, developers, and other IT professionals.
Streamline software administrationProduct Highlights
Centralized administration significantly lowers total cost of ownership through server-based software deployment and maintenance. Microsoft Installer technology lets system administrators service and upgrade systems easily from a central network server.
