Beta 2 Releases of SecureCRT 9.0 for Windows and SecureFX 9.0 for Windows Now Available

The Beta 2 releases of SecureCRT 9.0 for Windows, SecureFX 9.0 for Windows, and VanDyke ClientPack 9.0 are now available for download.

The beta releases of SecureCRT 9.0 and SecureFX 9.0 are currently available only for the Windows platform. The macOS and Linux 9.0 beta installers will be available at a later date.

SecureCRT 9.0 (Beta) for Windows introduces RDP support, so you can quickly connect RDP sessions in a tab, along with an integrated scratchpad tab for text editing and a script editor tab for editing local scripts, all right within SecureCRT. The status bar can be customized to show only the desired items, including the log file name and local system time, in the order you choose. Also new is the ability to pre-load agent keys and the ability to use wildcards in the Session Manager filter box.

“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. 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.”
– Richard Matzinger, Digital Pathways

SecureCRT 9.0 Script Editor

Save time by using the new built-in script editor with syntax highlighting to create and modify local scripts. Use the scratchpad tab or tile to write notes or copy and paste configuration commands or other text without having to open a separate editor.

SecureFX 9.0 (Beta) introduces AWS S3 support, which allows you to easily transfer files to and from your secure Amazon cloud S3 buckets. Enhanced file transfer options streamline your workflow by allowing automatic removal of files from the transfer queue and time stamping by the destination server. New time-saving features include the ability to pre-load agent keys and to find sessions even faster by using wildcards in the Session Manager filter box.

VanDyke Clientpack 9.0 (Beta) introduces enhancements including new algorithm support and support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

You can download any of the 9.0 beta releases from the beta download page.
