VanDyke Software Announces New Beta Releases of SecureCRT 9.0 for Windows with Built-in RDP and SecureFX 9.0 for Windows with AWS S3 Support

SecureCRT® 9.0 for Windows

VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure­ file transfer software, today announced the beta releases of SecureCRT® 9.0 for Windows and SecureFX® 9.0 for Windows.  Beta installers for macOS and Linux 9.0 will be available at a later date.

These new releases save time by providing built-in access to services and applications.  “For SecureCRT 9.0 and SecureFX 9.0 our goal was to simplify our customers’ workflow and reduce the amount of time they spend starting up other programs to get their work done,” said Maureen Jett, Product Director. “Now you can consolidate network connections right in SecureCRT and quickly connect RDP sessions in a tab. We also added a scratchpad tab and script editor tab so there’s no need to open separate editors.  SecureFX now supports Amazon AWS S3 buckets so that you can easily transfer files to and from your secure cloud storage.”

“I have used both SecureCRT and SecureFX every day for years and I find the new script editor in SecureCRT to be useful and convenient,” said Richard Matzinger from Digital Pathways.  “I can open a local file for viewing or editing right in a tab. I can use it to compose SQL statements and then paste them into a tab connected to a database, then save the file in the editor tab for a history of all the statements I have issued.”

SecureCRT and SecureFX 9.0 support the use of wildcards in the Session Manager filter box, letting you refine searches to show the exact sessions you are interested in, manage work, and minimize errors.  Both applications also let you specify which keys to pre-load into SSH2 agent, saving time and simplifying steps when using the integrated SecureCRT+SecureFX Bundle.

SecureCRT 9.0 offers new customization options. The status bar can be set to show only desired items (such as log file name and local system time) in the order you choose. You can also display the number of lines selected and view the status bar in full-screen mode.  Also new is support for Python 3, the ability to do a Google search on selected text, and enhancements to multi-line paste confirmation.
