Web-to Host Connectivity Product Easy-To-Use and Install


Jerusalem, Israel, June 22, 1999 - Ericom Software, a leading developer of enterprise connectivity software solutions, today announced the release of PowerTerm Java for platform-independent connectivity to mission critical applications. PowerTerm Java's client-server architecture works with such hosts as IBM AS/400, IBM Mainframe, UNIX, HP and Digital, providing expanded and reliable access to the enterprise network from any Java-based browser.

The newest addition to the PowerTerm terminal emulation series, PowerTerm Java represents Ericom's entry into the web-to-host connectivity market, addressing the growing need for cross-platform compatibility, high-level security and increased flexibility in host access. With PowerTerm Java, corporations can allow partners, employees and branch offices to run mission-critical applications via the web and from any Java-enabled desktop. PowerTerm Java runs on Windows NT, Windows 98 and Windows 95 platforms as well as on the Mac, UNIX terminals and network computers. The Java applet is less than 100k, making it quicker and more efficient to download and use.

Ericom CEO and founder Eran Heyman said, "Today's MIS manager faces an unprecedented challenge in providing expanded access to legacy systems together with keeping down costs. PowerTerm Java incorporates the latest industry standards and emerging technologies to meet these needs while enabling end-users to increase performance and productivity and enhance a corporation's return on investment."

PowerTerm Java's value-added features include powerful centralized management, and single-point installation. With PowerTerm Java, MIS and system administrators benefit from the ability to reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO), saving both time and money typically associated with establishing enterprise-wide connectivity. The system administrator is able to centrally customize the list of hosts and color settings for each individual user. The product's client-server architecture provides unlimited scalability for any sized business. In addition, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS), supporting the strongest industry encryption and authentication standards, are currently being built into the product.

Additional features of PowerTerm Java include automatic font resizing, copy and paste block/lines/word, multiple concurrent sessions, 80-132 column support and more.
