OVERVIEW

Your users expect fast access to business applications from any location, on any device - whether working with a browser, Eclipse framework or 3270 interface. At the same time, you need increased security to protect your organization from cyber threats. Tubes for z/OS helps you address both of these challenges. It is an advanced session management solution that allows users to connect securely to multiple mainframe, IBM i and UNIX VT220 applications from a single menu. At the same time Tubes provides system administrators with powerful capabilities to monitor and control access.

An optional browser interface offers a way to instantly web enable your mainframe and IBM i applications without the expense of undertaking a development project. Browser access also removes the need for 3270 emulation software when using mainframe applications on a PC, leading to significant additional cost savings. At the same time, users can enjoy the flexibility of working with mainframe and IBM i applications on any mobile device as they are no longer tied to a computer running a terminal emulator.
