Pragma Telnet Server Adds SSL, Session Reconnect and Windows 7 Support

AUSTIN, Texas, July 15, 2009 -- Pragma Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class remote access and security software for Microsoft Windows and Windows Mobile, announces the 2nd Generation (Gen2) release of Pragma TelnetServer 7.0. The new Gen2 code adds SSL security to Telnet, enhanced reconnect features for handhelds, multi-language support and Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and PowerShell support, giving users and systems administrators features and functionality to significantly boost their productivity and performance of their systems.

"PEAK Technologies has included the Pragma server technologies as part of our comprehensive data collection solution set for supply chain applications for over nine years to many of our customers," says Tim Wills, Vice President of Marketing at Peak Technologies. "Pragma technology continues to be the most reliable and dependable technology available for Telnet or SSH remote and secure connectivity access, and we are pleased to see how Pragma continues to lead the market with their new features available on this latest technology release. We are especially interested in talking to our customers about Pragma's new Telnet with SSL support, which provides our customers with yet another solid alternative for secure remote access."

Pragma Systems takes pride in listening to its customers and enhances their products accordingly. By adding Telnet SSL, Pragma gives Telnet customers an easy migration path to high security using FIPS-certified encryption during telnet sessions. The session reconnect feature is critical for handheld customers. Session reconnect allows customers to get back to the exact point in their application when a session disconnects due to being out of Wi-Fi range. This is a big productivity improvement for customers, especially people in the field who may encounter session drops due to network outage. Our enhanced features in the server detect when a handheld client needs to reconnect versus a handheld explicitly disconnecting.

Key Features of Pragma TelnetServer Gen2:

o New Gen2 architecture for high performance, reliability, scalability and robustness

o Telnet SSL server uses FIPS and United States government certified Microsoft
Cryptography, whereas competitors use open source code from OpenSSL

o Session Reconnect feature in both Telnet and TelnetSSL server

o Supports all Microsoft Windows languages

o Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 support

o Full Windows PowerShell support including remote execution and loading of outputs into shell variables

"TelnetSSL provides an excellent migration option to thousands of our customers who have chosen Telnet as their application delivery model," says Beth Redd, Server Product Manager of Pragma Systems. "Now they can have high security by upgrading to our TelnetSSL without having to rebuild their network with SSH."

Pragma Telnet Server for Windows uses innovative, patent-pending technology to bring the fastest, most scalable and feature-rich telnet server software for remote network and application access. While performing optimally with Pragma Fortress SSH ClientSuite and Pragma PocketVT, the software allows multiple users from any telnet client on any operating system or handhelds to run console/character applications from Windows. Pragma's products allow end-to-end remote access and management to computers across an enterprise environment.
