Rumba is a terminal emulation solution with UI (User Interface) modernization properties. Rumba and Rumba+ allows users to connect to so-called 'legacy systems' (typically a mainframe) via desktop, web and mobile. Rumba provides IT end users with a modern UI, allowing them to bypass 'green screen' applications.

Launched in 1989, Rumba (previously RUMBA) was one of the first Windows based terminal emulators available.[1]

Originally developed by Wall Data, Inc,[2] Rumba was acquired by NetManage and then by Micro Focus.[3][4]
