REMOTE USERS CONNECT TO UNIX WITH REFLECTION X ADVANTAGE 2.0.

Attachmate Corporation, Seattle, has announced Attachmate(r) Reflection(r) X Advantage version 2.0, a multiplatform X server that connects remote Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac desktop users to graphical UNIX-based applications. Enhanced with Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) and Secure Shell (SSH) support, this market-leading solution boasts a new architecture designed to optimize performance for high-latency and low-bandwidth networks.

In a time when IT organizations are looking to reduce resources and do more with less, Reflection X Advantage helps organizations align with green computing standards and cut IT costs by extending the life and reach of existing applications and servers. When consolidating data center assets through server virtualization and the elimination of replicated servers, Reflection X Advantage helps organizations by providing remote application access for users who are no longer co-located with their UNIX host system.

"Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 offers unparalleled support to remote and mobile users who need access to graphical UNIX applications, with improved performance and more freedom when using these applications in different locations," said Sam Morris, product marketing manager at Attachmate. "In addition, by driving server consolidation in the data center, Reflection X helps IT organizations reduce energy resources and align with green computing standards which can result in significant cost savings."

Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 allows users to experience the rich visual display and reliable security they need to get their jobs done whether it's from the office, the road or around the globe. New enhancements and functionality include:

* Access to the Latest Linux Desktops Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 allows users to display GNOME and KDE desktops from a Windows PC, a Mac OS X workstation or another Linux workstation. Desktop sessions can be suspended and resumed, or transferred to another workstation seamlessly.

* "Beyond-the-Building" Access Organizations can deliver core assets to users around the globe - without jeopardizing performance. A fault tolerance feature improves productivity by allowing users to recover X sessions that have been interrupted by workstation crashes or network outages. With high-latency and low-bandwidth optimization, Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 gives remote users reliable access to X applications.

* Project Continuity Today's mobile workforce require solutions that allow them to start a project in the office and then pick it up from a different location, collaborate with coworkers in other locations and share documents or application user interfaces in real time. With a distributed architecture, Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 allows X applications to be launched, suspended, resumed, transferred and shared.

* High-Level Security Reflection X Advantage version 2.0 includes the latest SSH and SSL/TLS encryption with a cryptographic module validated for FIPS 140-2, one of the U.S. government's top security standards.

"Reflection X Advantage has been an invaluable tool because it's critical that I access my Linux desktop from a Windows PC on a daily basis," said Klaus Eckert, Linux application developer at ProContour GmbH. "I've been really impressed with the product's performance and multi-monitor support. In addition, I can now securely connect to my Linux desktop with SSH."

Reflection X Advantage is just one component of the Reflection X family of products which provides secure, comprehensive desktop-to-UNIX connectivity. Trusted for more than 15 years, Reflection X solutions enable users to access mission-critical UNIX applications, from those with a simple character-based terminal interface to applications with complex 3D graphical rendering.

Reflection X Advantage Version 2.0 is available immediately for purchase. For more information on pricing, please contact sales@attachmate.com.
