As your IT infrastructure grows more complex, it gets harder to meet the diverse demands of your scattered host application users. Luckily, Extra! terminal emulation solutions provide the robust security, productivity tools, and emerging-technology support you need to get the job done.
At a Glance
Connect people to data
Connect Windows users to the data they need on IBM, UNIX, Linux, OpenVMS, and HP NonStop/Tandem hosts. Simplify the connection process with intuitive features and rich functionality.
Make secure connections
Safeguard host data, thwart network threats, and fulfill internal and external security requirements. Integrated, multilayered security options make it all possible.
Boost user productivity
Help users work more effectively. Build custom workflows and front—ends. Implement Microsoft Office productivity features to save keystrokes and improve accuracy. Your users will thank you for it.
Adapt with ease
Work with older technologies, or with the latest and greatest—including the hottest versions of Office and Windows. No more scrambling to adapt when things change.
"Our 'super users' (developers and system administrators) are already using these new features. Several have talked about the integration with the Microsoft Office Suite and are fascinated by how it works."
Protect data in motion
Every time data moves across the network, there's risk involved. Minimize the risk with a secure FTP client that uses SSL/TLS, SSH, and Kerberos; FIPS 140-2-validated SSH cryptography; and a FIPS-mode Group Policy setting. This high level of security helps you comply with stringent security mandates.
Put Microsoft Office productivity features to work
Make host apps as easy to use as Office apps. Users will work faster and more accurately with AutoComplete, AutoExpand, Spell Check, Scratch Pad, Recent Typing, and Screen History.
Work smarter, not harder
Use the Custom Installation Wizard to completely personalize Extra! before deployment. Use Group Policy to centrally manage settings files. Other Windows administration features—including Microsoft Installer, Active Directory, and roaming user profiles—are all there to make your job easier.
Maximize IT investments
Move forward without changing everything. Extra! supports a mix of existing and emerging technologies, including Windows 8 Pro, Windows 7, Active Directory, Group Policy, and Microsoft App-V; VMware; Citrix XenApp; and IPv6 and 64-bit computing.
