Battle of the Emulators
Who’s in your corner?
Reflection 2014—Feature Evaluation vs. IBM Personal Communications 6.0, OpenText HostExplorer 14.0 and Rocket Software BlueZone 6.1.
Reflection is the undisputed World Champion when it comes to terminal emulation. But don’t just take our word for it—check out the latest Test Report from the Tolly Group comparing Reflection with other popular terminal emulation products.
Excerpt from Executive Summary:
Legacy IBM host-based applications, whether running on IBM mainframes or AS/400 minicomputers, operate on the most critical business data in enterprises. Today's user interfaces have advanced significantly since the golden age of the mainframe and it is important to take advantage of modern user-interface constructs and productivity enhancements to streamline access to critical enterprise data. Similarly, regulatory standards like PCI require secure access for connections both inside and outside the corporate network.
We commissioned Tolly to evaluate our Reflection 2014 terminal emulation solution vs. four other offerings focusing on user interface, productivity, secure access and mobile experience. The Micro Focus solution delivered significant benefits in all areas evaluated.
The Bottom Line
Reflection 2014 provides:
A modernized user experience that enhances productivity on desktop, laptop and tablet devices
Superior security and protection of sensitive host data over the network and on the desktop
Reflection Security Gateway (RSG) (optional add-on) to secure access to host application and centrally manage emulation desktop clients
