Ericom's PowerTerm® WebConnect 3.1 Supports Netscape 6.0 with Encryption
on UNIX and LINUX Workstations
Hackensack, NJ February 2001...Ericom® Software, Inc., announces
the release of PowerTerm® WebConnect 3.1. PowerTerm WebConnect 3.1 offers all of the features
of version 3.0 but now supports Netscape 6.0 running on UNIX and LINUX workstations. Finally,
a Java based host access solution that works "encrypted" on UNIX and LINUX workstations, is now
available from Ericom Software.
Within the Thin Client Java environment, PowerTerm WebConnect 3.1 includes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
security and a powerful System Manager tool. With PowerTerm WebConnect, corporations can allow
partners, employees and branch offices to run mission-critical applications via the web and
from any Java-enabled UNIX and LINUX workstation with full security. PowerTerm WebConnect 3.1
uses SSL encryption algorithms from the industry standard - RSA Security, Inc.
PowerTerm WebConnect 3.1 supports Netscape 6.0 and earlier versions of Netscape running on
UNIX and LINUX workstations.
Highest Level of Security for Browser Based Sessions
The unique Web-to-Host solution supports built-in security. Secure sessions using Internet
standard SSL provides data encryption, server authentication, message integrity and optional
client authentication for a TCP/IP connection. Thus allowing users to work in a safe and protected
environment. PowerTerm WebConnect 3.1 also supports secured connection between the client and the server
even in cases where the host does not support SSL.
PowerTerm WebConnect is an ideal solution, offering MIS and system managers single-point installation.
PowerTerm WebConnect is easily installed in minutes onto the server and configured for all users.
PowerTerm WebConnect eliminates time consuming installation of the terminal emulation program
on each individual client. The system manager configures, deploys and monitors PowerTerm WebConnect
on the server, reducing installation time and overhead. The product's client-server architecture
provides unlimited scalability for any size business.
The System Manager tool is especially helpful for remote users, multiple office locations and
the occasional user who might need assistance. This feature can be extremely valuable for companies
that need to train new employees, assist employees on a new legacy application or for general
on-going, day-to-day support. In addition, a System Administrator can now monitor the entire system
remotely, checking on which sessions are open, how many and who has current access to what application.
PowerTerm WebConnect is part of Ericom Software's e-Business Suite of products, which includes
PowerTerm Host Publisher, for Web and Wireless enabling of legacy systems.
