NetManage Updates Web-to-Host Security

Version 4.0 of Rumba Security is introduced.

Venerable Web-to-host vendor NetManage Inc. introduced Rumba Security Service 4.0, the latest version of its encryption module for its Rumba Web-to-host product.

Rumba Security Service gives enterprises the ability to encrypt transmissions between legacy systems and users of Web-to-host systems.

Because of government regulations, specifically the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), companies in the financial-services and health-care industries often have to encrypt customer data from end-to-end. Rumba Security Service provides the functionality to bring companies in line with these government requirements.

The new version operates through HTTPS ports, allowing data to flow freely through traditional firewalls, and can employ the latest SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technologies. It also supports multi-layer authentication, allowing the use of digital certificates and signatures.

Rumba Security Service 4.0 is priced at $4,000 per server.
