Ensure the highest level of security

Sleep well at night knowing that your emulation solution provides military-strength security at every level. From FIPS 140-2 validation, TLS 1.2 encryption, and SHA-256/RSA-2048 digital signatures to PCI DSS compliance, DoD PKI certification, data masking, and patented Secure Token Authorization, Reflection Desktop has you covered.

Team up with Host Access Management and Security Server (MSS)

Integrate the host and IAM

Streamline and secure your host-access operation by teaming Reflection, Rumba+®, or InfoConnect emulators with MSS. Working with your Identity and Access Management (IAM) system, MSS seamlessly propagates changes to application settings and user-specific content—right here, right now, from a central server. Next time users launch a session, they'll receive the changes.

Take centralized control

Manage host-access operations from your central MSS console. Lock down 100s (or 1000s) of far-flung desktops with ease. Grant or deny access based on group or role. Apply changes quickly to align with business needs. Make post-install adjustments on the fly. Do it on your schedule, not someone else's.

Reinforce security as you remove passwords

Finally, you can bring your host into the IAM fold. That means you can replace weak, eight-character passwords with strong, complex ones. Implement best-fit multifactor authentication methods. Say goodbye to host passwords and automatically sign users on to their mainframe applications. It's safe, manageable, and economical with MSS.
