Efficiently and securely deliver HTML5-based emulation with a true zero-footprint client. Reflection ZFE makes managing your terminal emulation environment as easy as a walk on the beach.

At a Glance

Eliminate desktop touches

Easily deliver zero-footprint terminal emulation across the enterprise without the need to manage desktop software.

Centralize control

Define and provision emulation sessions, control user access to mainframe applications, and monitor usage—all from a single, central point of administration.

Meter, report, optimize

Leverage centralized metering and reporting to optimize computing resource allocation and track user access.

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 strong authentication. Say goodbye to host passwords and automatically sign users on to their mainframe applications. It’s safe, manageable, and economical with MSS.


Centrally define and deliver secure emulation sessions

Deliver browser-based, HTML5 access to 3270, 5250, VT, and Unisys sessions from a central location—without the need to touch the desktop or manage Java runtime environments. Protect communications with HTTPS, SSL/TLS, and SSH security.

Access multiple host systems and host types via a single browser window

Leverage your existing user directory

Provide secure access to your host systems using your existing identity management solution. With Active Directory/LDAP integration, easily entitle emulation sessions to trusted end users.

Save time and boost security by leveraging your existing Active Directory/LDAP user directory to centrally deliver and secure access to users and groups.

Easily control user access

With centralized administration, control user access to mainframe applications from a single web-based console. Quickly confirm that a user has been authenticated and granted access to a host session before that session is ever allowed—and keep your sensitive host data secure.

Assign centrally-defined terminal sessions to directory users and groups.

Monitor and meter usage

Use centralized activity logging to identify which users are accessing your host systems and the total number of sessions connecting to the host. With the metering tool, you can monitor and report on user and session volumes, and optimize how you allocate computing resources and provision user access rights.

Select from numerous options to view reports on user and session activity.
