Key features

Concurrent multi-session support

Users can save time and effort by switching seamlessly between applications running on any IBM mainframe operating system anywhere on your network, together with any IBM i and UNIX applications.

Single sign-on

Once signed onto Tubes there is no need to log into individual applications, or re-enter security details.

Instant web enablement

Any 3270, UNIX VT220 or IBM i 5250 session accessed through the Tubes browser interface is automatically web enabled and optimized for touchscreen and mouse.

Comprehensive security

Managing access to applications and features requires minimal administrator effort. Users can be authenticated using internal Tubes security or external products such as RACF. Additionally, multi-factor authentication (MFA) support enables you to apply additional security without updating your enterprise applications.

Dynamic menu creation

Menus are personalized so that each user sees only those applications they are authorized to access.

Intuitive administration

It is easy for authorized personnel to add, update and delete users and applications; you can also allow end users to tailor their own working environment.

Batch administration

Mass updates to applications and user profiles can be run automatically to reduce administrative overheads.

Network Data Minimizer

Inbound and outbound data streams are compressed to increase network throughput and avoid bottlenecks.

Application Builder

Information from different sessions can be combined and displayed on a single screen, in effect creating a new application without any development overhead.

Monitoring and reporting

An integrated performance dashboard helps you to improve service levels by monitoring and analyzing key metrics such as response times and user activity. Tubes also enables real-time management reporting through Splunk, and supports all leading business intelligence tools.

Eclipse, browser and 3270 access

A range of interfaces meet the needs of every user, from mobile and office-based workers through to development and operations personnel.
