Introducing the SecureCRT® iPad® App! Rock-Solid Secure Access on the Go

We’re pleased to announce that SecureCRT is now available as an iPad app.

SecureCRT for iPad is a go-anywhere, high-productivity remote access app, providing rock-solid terminal emulation for SSH2 and Telnet protocols on your mobile device.  SecureCRT offers advanced session management that lets you create folders to organize sessions, and import sessions from your desktop version of SecureCRT.

Here’s what one SecureCRT for iPad customer has to say:

“I’ve been using SecureCRT on Windows for many years and it’s the most stable and comfortable tool we found. SecureCRT for iPad is as stable as I expected from my experience with the Windows version.  I’ve tried other iPad apps, but SecureCRT has the best handling of all of them.  It’s a great tool that makes my work easier.”    —Gerhard Bade, data networks manager

Introducing SecureCRT 7.3, SecureFX 7.3, and ClientPack 7.3 Official Releases with Enhanced Dockable Session Manager and Advanced Keyword Highlighting for SecureCRT

The official releases of SecureCRT 7.3, SecureFX 7.3, and VanDyke ClientPack 7.3 are now available for download.

SecureCRT 7.3 and SecureFX 7.3 features:

  • A dockable session manager on all platforms with a filter bar for quickly locating sessions in the session database
  • An import/export tool that makes it easier to backup or copy settings from one machine to another
  • Improved security with the ability to generate and store larger keys in the SSH Agent

SecureCRT 7.3 introduces enhanced keyword highlighting that allows you to specify keyword colors and combine keyword attributes to make critical output stand out.  You can now easily identify errors in log files or streaming output or highlight prompts.  On the Windows and Mac platforms, regular expressions can be used as keywords.

Here’s what one customer had to say about the keyword highlighting:

“Colorizing based on regular expressions opens up a world of possibilities, but just having the ability to make simple keywords such as ‘no/down/initializing/error/fail’ show red, and ‘up/ready/success’ show green has made me so much more productive.  I am no longer hunting through a wall of text hoping that I don’t miss important information. Now I can define what is important and the colors make it pop out on the screen automatically.” — Casey Blackburn, Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP

SecureCRT 7.3 also introduces named pipes (Windows only), scripting support for Kermit file transfers, and support for larger authentication keys, as well a number of other enhancements.

SecureFX 7.3 adds PGP compatibility, making it possible to automatically execute the encryption and decryption process, a new SFXCL resume option for resuming interrupted transfers, and the ability to display filenames using UTF-8.

ClientPack 7.3 improves security with the ability to generate larger keys and adds the vsftp option –no-flock, which turns off locking on local files for uploads and downloads, preventing a potential hang if the source file is located on mounted storage, such as EMC NFS.

You can download any of the 7.3 official releases from the official download page.
