Rumba is a terminal emulation software program with user interface (UI) modernization properties. Rumba and Rumba+ allow users to connect to 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]
