HostExplorer is a single, unified solution that offers both desktop-based software and a web-to-host based terminal emulation environment, both providing the same interface, the same features, the same power and the same administrative options.
Using web browsers as a software delivery vehicle, HostExplorer can easily be deployed to local and global users alike. By supporting a wide range of encryption and authentication methods, the HostExplorer web-to-host solution ensures that mission critical data is safely transmitted.
Not only will remote users benefit from the web-to-host solution, HostExplorer can also help organizations that wish to move away from the traditional desktop-based solution. It allows them to take advantage of built-in web capabilities, auto-upgrade functionalities, and centralized deployment and configuration architecture. HostExplorer can even leverage scripts and macros created for traditional desktop-based solutions, thus minimizing the impact on business workflow and user productivity.
Unlike any other solution on the market, HostExplorer does not require you to choose between desktop or browser, features or power, productivity or convenience, but offers you the best of both worlds. It translates to less time and money spent on the deployment process and lower total cost of ownership.
