Eicon Provides An "Off the Wall" Solution for Rumba Users

Ever since NetManage (www.netmanage.com) bought rival Wall Data (www.walldata.com) in October, other companies in the host management market have been rushing in to grab Wall's Rumba customers.

The latest entry into this fray came today, when Eicon Technology (www.eicon.com) introduced its "Off the Wall" free migration program for users of Rumba to switch to Eicon's Aviva family of products.

"Off the Wall" provides Wall Data customers with a one-time opportunity to update their current Rumba emulation package to a parallel offering from the Aviva family of host access products. Eicon will match both product type and number of licenses.

Eicon will also provide its standard maintenance service during the terms of the customers' Wall Data maintenance agreement to the termination date or for up to one year. Eicon's "Off the Wall" program is effective immediately and will run through January 31, 2000.

Aviva’s PC-to-host connectivity products deliver host applications to the desktop or Web browser via SNA or TCP/IP-centric networks. The family consists of Aviva for Desktops, Aviva Web-to-Host Server, Aviva for Java, Aviva for Terminal Servers, and Aviva HostPrint Server. -- Isaac Slepner
