It's not just about terminal emulation anymore. It's about staying ahead of what's going on around it. Countless innovations after our first game-changing emulator, Reflection® Desktop (formerly Attachmate® Reflection Desktop) raises the bar once again. Every feature is designed to deliver something truly useful to you. Not just today, but tomorrow too.

Reflection Desktop
Data Sheet Reflection Desktop
  • Enjoy one-stop host access. Connect to IBM, UNIX, Linux, OpenVMS, and HP hosts.
  • Integrate the host and IAM. Easily extend IAM security benefits to host systems.
  • Encrypt data in motion. Protect data with the latest SSL/TLS, SSH, FTP, and Kerberos technologies.
  • Take control. Configure, secure, deploy, and update host sessions from a central location.
  • Cut keystrokes. Personalize sessions and automate tasks to help users do their best work.
Access your host systems

Connect desktop and mobile users to the wealthiest corporate data banks of all—your legacy hosts. Make information on IBM, UNIX, Linux, OpenVMS, HP 3000, HP NonStop, and X11 (X Window) apps available to them whenever, wherever, however they need it.

Deliver easy and familiar

Make host apps as easy to use as Office apps. Add modern user-interface elements. Put Microsoft Office productivity features to work. Now your users can do their best work, wherever they are.

Ensure the highest level of security

Ensure that your terminal emulation solution is secure at every level. From FIPS 140-2 validation, TLS 1.2 encryption, elliptical curve cryptography (ECC), 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 Identity and Access Management

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 remote 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.

Reinforce security through multifactor authentication

Bring your host into the Identity and Access Management (IAM) system fold. This means you can replace weak, eight-character passwords with strong, complex ones. Implement best-fit multifactor authentication methods (one-time passwords (OTP), biometric, push token, mobile authentication and more). Say goodbye to host passwords and automatically sign users on to their mainframe applications. It's safe, manageable, and economical with MSS.

"I have used several terminal emulation solutions in the past, but none of them had the flexibility and ease of programming that Reflection offers. We have a number of repetitive processes—for example, policy confirmation and end-of-day report generation—that drain on our resources. Using Reflection, we automated those processes quickly and easily, which has improved staff productivity and data-entry accuracy."
