Zephyr Announces Support for Microsoft Windows 7 SP1
Critical Release Will Usher in Large Scale Corporate Adoption of New Standard
Houston, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) March 16, 2011
Zephyr is pleased to announce the support of Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with its PASSPORT family of 3270, 5250 and UNIX terminal emulation products.
Windows 7 SP1, an important Microsoft update that includes previously released security, performance, and stability updates for Windows 7, will be considered by many corporate users to be a critical milestone in terms of their adoption of the new desktop operating standard.
For many large organizations, mission-critical applications continue to be hosted on IBM System z (mainframes), IBM System i (AS/400 and iSeries) and UNIX servers. Secure, reliable access to these applications is essential and the Zephyr PASSPORT family of terminal emulation solutions offers best-of-breed communication between Microsoft Windows 7 and these important legacy platforms.
“The release of Windows 7 SP1 will help usher in a 2-3 year migration period of customers transitioning from Windows XP to the latest Microsoft desktop operating system,” said David Muck, President, Zephyr. “This time frame comes from data just collected in the annual Zephyr customer survey conducted in January and February of this year,” he continued.
The Zephyr PASSPORT terminal emulation software has been tested with Windows 7 SP1 and found to be fully compatible. PASSPORT, which includes advanced TN3270E, TN5250E, VT, SCO ANSI and Wyse host access, has been certified as being “Compatible with Windows 7″. PASSPORT is often used as an alternative to terminal emulation solutions from Attachmate, IBM and Micro Focus.
