Attachmate e-Vantage Host Access Server is a server-based host access management solution; it enables enterprises to extend their access to existing host applications residing on mainframe, AS/400, and Unix/VMS systems to any Web-enabled desktop. Companies requiring basic Web-to-host technology for occasional users can choose the "Standard Viewer" part of Host Access Server; companies that require more robust capabilities for intensive users can choose the "Enterprise Viewer." Host Access Server provides full-featured desktop emulation, plus licenses for both Java-based technology and ActiveX thin-client applets. It also provides integrated security technology for authentication and encryption, as well as robust multi-platform support, and extensive directory services support, including Windows NT Directory Services, Novell Directory Services, and LDAP-enabled directories.
