Albuquerque, New Mexico (PressExposure) September 15, 2008 -- VanDyke Software, a developer of Secure Shell solutions that balance strong security with ease of use, today announced the official releases of SecureCRTÂ® 6.1 and SecureFXÂ® 6.1.
SecureCRT 6.1 introduces new scripting capabilities that allow system administrators to automate routine activities. âScripting allows our customers, mostly busy IT professionals, to save time by automating certain processes,â said Maureen Jett, VanDyke Software's Product Director. âIn this release, we focused on adding internal scripting functionality. In addition to accessing the clipboard and session options, we added the ability to send special keys, which makes it easier to create scripts that are protocol and emulation independent.â
âWe also made it easier to script logons by allowing you to enter Secure Shell logon credentials in the terminal window, and to save usernames and passwords with keyboard-interactive authentication. And, to help customers quickly make use of SecureCRTâs scripting capabilities, weâve added example scripts to the program.â Other new features include the ability to search from the Connect dialog, disconnect and reconnect all tabbed sessions, and launch a remote command or application on connect.
Site synchronization is simple and fast in SecureFX 6.1 with a synchronize database and the ability to use an active session for synchronization activities. SecureFX speeds up navigation by using context menu items to move back, forward, to the parent folder, to the home folder, to the root folder, and to the current folder in Explorer. Like SecureCRT 6.1, the SecureFX 6.1 Connect dialog allows searching for sessions, hosts, folder, or keywords.
Armed with strong encryption, trusted authentication, and data integrity, you can confidently exchange electronic data over public networks. SecureCRT is the tool of choice for IT professionals who are responsible for network administration and end-user access where security is critical, combining a feature-filled terminal emulator with the security of the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. SecureFX is a versatile file transfer application that supports SFTP, FTP over SSL, as well as standard FTP. VanDyke Software also offers the VShellÂ® Secure Shell server, which replaces Telnet and FTP for secure network administration and end-user access on Windows and UNIX platforms. The VanDyke ClientPack combines a powerful set of command-line utilities for securely automating routine file transfer, shell, and public-key administration tasks on Windows, Linux, and UNIX.
