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. You also need increased security to protect your organization from cyber threats. UniGW® Session Manager is an advanced solution for IBM mainframe systems that helps you address both of these challenges. UniGW® Session Manager improves user experience by allowing users to connect securely to multiple mainframe sessions, as well as IBM i and Unix applications, from a single menu, on any computer or mobile device. At the same time, UniGW® Session Manager provides system administrators with powerful capabilities to monitor and control user access.

An optional browser interface lets you instantly web enable your mainframe, IBM i and Unix applications without the expense of undertaking a development project. Browser access also removes the need for 3270 emulation software, offering further potential for significant cost savings. Additionally, users can enjoy the flexibility of working with their enterprise applications from virtually anywhere as they are no longer tied to a computer running a terminal emulator.

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 signon
    Once signed onto UniGW® Session Manager there is no need to log into individual applications, or re-enter security details
  • Instant web enablement
    Any mainframe 3270, Unix VT220 or IBM i 5250 session accessed through the UniGW® Session Manager browser interface is automatically web enabled and optimized for touchscreen and mouse
  • Comprehensive security
    Access to individual applications and features can be managed with minimal administrator effort and users can be authenticated using internal UniGW® Session Manager security or external products such as RACF; support for multi-factor authentication (MFA) enables additional security to be applied without updating your underlying business applications
  • Intuitive administration
    UniGW® Session Manager makes administration easy for authorized personnel, allowing them to add, update and delete users and applications. Additionally, end users can even be permitted to tailor their own working environment using a simple and effective self-administration function
  • Monitoring and reporting
    An integrated performance dashboard, UniGW® Analyzer, supports service level improvement through monitoring and analysis of key metrics such as response times and user activity; UniGW® Session Manager also enables real-time management reporting through Splunk, and supports TIBCO JasperReports and all other leading business intelligence tools
  • Network Data Minimizer
    Inbound and outbound data streams are compressed to increase network throughput and avoid bottlenecks
  • Batch administration
    Mass updates to applications and user profiles can be run automatically to reduce administrative overheads
  • Dynamic menu creation
    Menus are personalized so that each user sees only those applications they are authorized to access
  • 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
  • Eclipse, browser and 3270 access
    A range of complementary interfaces meet the needs of every user, from mobile and office-based workers through to development and operations personnel
