Micro Focus RUMBA provides connectivity from Microsoft Windows desktops to virtually any host system with mission critical reliability. Innovative features increase user productivity, reduce total cost of ownership, and simplify enterprise migrations to browser-based and server-based computing. RUMBA makes it easy to connect to and use information on IBM mainframe, IBM iSeries, UNIX, Hewlett-Packard and VAX systems. Micro Focus' modular-based products ensure optimal performance and fast, flexible custom application development.
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
RUMBA provides access to a broad range of host types. 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
RUMBA enables business users to work productively with host-based information within a user-friendly Windows environment. It provides all the core functionality of a Windows-based emulator, from multi-session support and host printer emulation to a variety of file transfer and host-based graphics options.
History and training
RUMBA features an extensive history showing where the end user has gone throughout a transaction. History files can be named and searched via text or, if the end user highlights a field in the active terminal window, with a right click. History files can be searched with this selected data. For training purposes, administrators can record "best practice" history files and distribute to all employees to ease training times.
Client-to-host communication is secure. RUMBA adapts to the high level of security available via your organization's existing host security, network security, firewalls, and virtual private networks (VPNs). RUMBA security is FIPS certified Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Secure Shell (SSH) technology for secure terminal and FTP sessions to host computers. RUMBA supports TLS. RUMBA Security Services (RSS) adds protection for users that connect via the Internet. Its patented technology provides persistent terminal and FTP sessions via the standard HTTPS port on your existing firewalls or proxy servers, making it easier than ever to extend access to external users while protecting information assets.
iSeries single sign-on
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 RUMBA window to meet exact requirements of each user or organization.
VBA-type scripting support
This enables automation via scripting to improve end-user productivity and streamline business processes. It supports the execution of existing Web-to-Host, ViewNow, and/or competitive scripts on the RUMBA platform, reducing the administrative costs associated with multi-client-type installations and consolidations.
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.
