Farabi Technology is demonstrating a number of products at this year's Gitex and key among these are its hosting access and application integration solutions for IBM legacy systems and Eicon Networks' Diva Server Card and Eiconcards.

On its stand in hall 7, the company is demonstrating the latest addition to its HostFront product family - HostFront for Unix (HFU). The solution complements other family members such as HostFront for the Mainframe (HFM) and HostFront for the AS/400 (HFA) and provides users with secure access to Unix terminal based applications over both public and private networks using TCP/IP or HTTP protocols.

The server based software is easy to install and use as enterprises
simply need to download ActiveX control, which then provides full support for VT100 display and print sessions.

Furthermore, the software offers 128-bit encryption and supports Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) and RSA SecurID token based authentication services.

HFU is designed for Windows 2000/2003 server platforms and is also able to fully integrate with Windows Domain Authentication to provide users with single sign on.

Among the Eicon products on display at Farabi's stand are its Diva Server Card and Eiconcards. The former are designed for remote access, fax servers, unified communications and voice over IP (VoIP), while the latter are X.25 interface cards embedded into systems applications like private branch exchanges (PBXs), point of sale (POS) devices and ATM machines.

Finally, Farabi is planning to promote its recent partnership agreement with multi-technology and multilingual printing solutions provider, Globalis. The deal sees the two parties sharing sales and support staff to deliver printing and e-business solutions.

"We are very excited about this new programme," says Bachar Kassar, general manager, Farabi Technology Middle East. "Globalis has a long track record in the Middle East and we have numerous shared clients. We are quite confident that both the clients of Farabi and Globalis will find strategic value in this programme," he adds.
