  • Create and deploy Extra! sessions, keyboards, and macros from a central location.(Requires a Reflection Security Gateway license)
  • Protect data in motion with SHA-256/RSA-2048 digital signatures and FIPS 140-2-validated SSH and SSL/TLS crypto modules.

Fewer keystrokes, faster tasks

With Extra! X-treme, users avoid extra keystrokes that over time can contribute to productivity loss. Because Extra! X-treme is integrated with Microsoft Office 2013, users can complete repetitive actions much faster and more accurately with productivity features such as AutoComplete, AutoExpand, Spell Check, Scratch Pad, Recent Typing, and Screen History. And now they can even print screen histories, personalize fonts in Scratch Pad, and format copied text more easily.

Enhanced control and flexibility

Extra! X-treme gives you even greater customization options—plus more powerful configuration tools. Enhancements to the Custom Installation Wizard enable you to completely customize the software before deployment to end users. You can also save valuable resources by using Group Policy to centrally manage settings files. And Extra! X-treme offers support for other important Windows administration features, such as Microsoft Installer, Active Directory, and roaming user profiles.

Bolstered security

Extra! X-treme delivers powerful, enhanced security that helps you meet important internal and external security requirements. With the Reflection Secure FTP Client, you can safeguard your data in motion using SSL/TLS, SSH, and Kerberos. And Extra! X-treme’s SSH cryptography is now validated for FIPS 140-2—plus, it’s been updated to provide even stronger security. You can even use the new FIPS-mode Group Policy setting to safeguard users’ mission-critical data as it travels across the network.

Support for the modern desktop

Extra! X-treme supports a mix of existing and emerging IT technologies, including Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Active Directory, and Group Policy; Microsoft App-V, VMware, and Citrix XenApp; and IPv6 and 64- bit computing.
