The Classic Emulator

Rock solid. Time tested.

Like all things classic, Reflection 14.1 embodies a simple idea that has withstood the test of time. From the start, it's been about reliably connecting people to data. As needs changed, Reflection evolved—but never away from that simple idea. That's why Reflection 14.1 terminal emulation software has all the features you need, and none that you don't.

At a Glance

Make the right connections

Connect users to the data they need on IBM, UNIX, OpenVMS, and HP hosts—from their Windows desktops. Give them a rich set of features and functions to make their jobs easier.

Do more, work less

No more scrambling to update or standardize your emulation software. Centralized management tools simplify deployment, configuration, usage tracking, and migration—so you can focus on larger IT issues.

Simplify and speed up user tasks

Legacy applications are cryptic and cumbersome to use. Eliminate inefficiencies and data entry errors caused by repetitive alt-tabbing or switching back and forth between multiple applications. Give users the modern features they need to be productive.

Protect private data

Maintain the integrity of critical business data with the latest encryption protocols, authentication methods, and user-level security features. Highest-level security is integrated into every Reflection product.

"From time to time, we've investigated other options, but they've always turned out to be clearly inferior to Reflection."

Command your console

Create host and PC X server sessions with Reflection. Deploy sessions using familiar Microsoft tools, such as Group Policy and MSI installer. Automatically update and distribute settings files with existing asset management tools or optional Reflection Security Gateway. Track usage and generate reports. Do it all from your management console.

"We choose Reflection Suite for X for many reasons; we were especially impressed with the superb X and VT emulation. Reflection gives us one reliable tool for a variety of host connections."

Wolfgang Ehnert
System Planning and Administration Manager

You can use Group Policy to customize and secure Reflection applications.

Modernize legacy apps

Automate routine or repetitive tasks. Improve navigation. Easily integrate host apps with web or Windows desktop apps. Use built-in VBA support or Reflection's own macro recorder to get it done.

"As special customization was required with keyboard translation, I knew from my earlier experience using Attachmate Reflection terminal emulation, that the solution worked across multiple environments and platforms and would be the right choice for us."

You can edit macros in the Visual Basic Editor.

Encrypt, authenticate,
and authorize

Minimize threats inside and outside the firewall with SSH, TLS 1.2, Kerberos, and patented Secure Token Authorization*. Reflection even includes a cryptographic module validated for FIPS 140-2—one of the US government's top security standards.

*Available with Reflection Security Gateway.

Reflection puts an access control point in front of the host so that the user has to authenticate before getting onto the internal network.
