SecureCRT 9.5 (Official) and SecureFX 9.5 (Official) from VanDyke Software Save System Administrators Time with Enhanced Credentials Management

Albuquerque, N.M. (January 16, 2024) — VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure file transfer and secure terminal emulation software, today announced new official releases of SecureCRT® 9.5 and SecureFX® 9.5.

SecureCRT Enhanced Credentials Management Saves Time When Logging On and Changing Passwords

"System administrators always look for ways to be more efficient and reduce the number of steps needed for routine tasks," said Maureen Jett, Product Director. "SecureCRT 9.5 lets you map a set of saved credentials to buttons, commands, and keys. Once mapped, you can send a password or username to a session with the click of a button." Also new is single-click access to the dialog to modify saved passwords. On Windows, a default RDP session lets you set RDP options independently of SecureCRT’s Default session.

SecureFX Adds Certificate Validation Options and Microsoft Azure Blob SFTP Compatibility Mode

SecureFX 9.5 adds new TLS certificate options that give you more control over revocation list checking when using FTPS and HTTPS sessions. When a Microsoft Azure Blob has SFTP server capability enabled, a new compatibility mode in SecureFX ensures that configuration settings are adjusted automatically to achieve a successful connection to the Azure Blob's SFTP server.

Support for Sonoma (macOS 14)

SecureCRT and SecureFX now support Sonoma (macOS 14).
