NetManage's New RUMBA Helps Organizations Meet Today's Critical Business Requirements.

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Flagship PC-to-Host Software Provides Single Application Support for a Multi-Host Environment, Ensuring Faster, Easier and More Cost-Effective Deployment and Support

NetManage, Inc. (Nasdaq:NETM), webifying host assets and accelerating deployment of critical applications into a Service-Oriented Architecture, today announced the latest version of RUMBA(R), the company's premier solution for easy PC client access to applications and databases on mainframe, AS/400, Unix, HP and VAX systems.

With the new release of RUMBA, NetManage continues its leadership in host access technology development. RUMBA software enables businesses to extend their enterprise systems to the latest desktop platforms, including Windows 2000 and Windows XP, while improving user productivity and simplifying deployment and administration.

"RUMBA software is the most recognized host access brand in the world," said Peter Havart-Simkin, Senior Vice President of World Wide Strategic Development. "Organizations have come to rely on RUMBA to increase user productivity and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). RUMBA ensures optimal performance and fast, flexible deployment."

RUMBA is part of NetManage's recently announced Host Services Platform (HSP), a set of products and shared services that gives customers unprecedented speed of deployment when pursuing host based initiatives. HSP's integrated capabilities allow RUMBA administrators to enable optional monitoring of user host access activity and provide reports so they can observe host usage patterns or determine cost allocations.

Administration, Security and Custom Application Development

Rumba connects Windows desktops to virtually any host, across any network, with mission critical reliability. Powerful features include:

--Monitoring and Reporting: An Administrator is now able to optionally turn on monitoring for RUMBA clients (as individuals or groups) to capture host connect/disconnect events. The information (which includes user name, user OS, time/date, host address, and more) is then formatted as a SOAP message and transmitted to an HSP Monitoring and Reporting server accessible on the network. The HSP Monitoring and Reporting server then stores this in a SQL database for real-time or batch analysis through standard database reporting tools.

--Custom application development: Support for a wide range of architectures and APIs provides maximum flexibility and convenience for programmers, developers, and other IT professionals. ActiveX support enables more efficient development and deployment of custom applications that interact with your host systems.

--High-powered security: Client-to-host communication is protected. No major architectural changes are required for deployment because RUMBA software works seamlessly with your organization's existing host security, network security, firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs).

--VBA-type scripting support: Enables automation via scripting to improve end-user productivity and streamline business processes. RUMBA PC-to-Host scripts are also supported on the OnWeb(R) Web-to-Host platform thus reducing transition costs from desktop to browser-based access.

--Web migration: In addition to macros and scripts, RUMBA customers can also leverage their configuration settings and keyboard maps for a smooth, cost-effective migration to NetManage's OnWeb Web-to-Host to support Web-based business initiatives.

--Comprehensive Technical Support: A range of NetManage ONESTEP(R) technical support programs and consulting services are available to maximize productivity with RUMBA products.

Centralized administration significantly lowers total cost of ownership through server-based software deployment and maintenance. RUMBA is the right solution for businesses seeking to increase the return on their technology investment while lowering their total cost of ownership.
