VanDyke Software Introduces SecureCRT SSH client for Apple iPhone

SecureCRT for iOS gives IT professionals a mobile SSH and Telnet app to securely manage servers and devices from their iPhone and iPad

Albuquerque, N.M. (August 23, 2016) — VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure file transfer software, today announced the availability of SecureCRT® for iPhone®, the company's iOS-based SSH client for remote IT administration. This new release adds iPhone support to the SecureCRT for iOS app. SecureCRT is also available for the desktop on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.

"Network administrators and IT managers have a growing need to be able to work from anywhere on a variety of mobile devices," said Maureen Jett, product director for SecureCRT at VanDyke Software. "With SecureCRT on their iPad or iPhone, IT professionals have the freedom to be on-the-go, securely accessing data and performing IT administration tasks without compromising enterprise security."

Since 1995, VanDyke Software has been developing secure access software that saves time for IT professionals, while allowing them to manage "anywhere access" for enterprise employees who need to work remotely and securely "tunnel" email, web, and corporate applications data.  SecureCRT for iOS enables remote access away from the desk and away from the office, increasing network administrators’ productivity, flexibility, and mobility—major benefits for busy IT professionals.

  • Customize session settings for emulation, appearance, logon, authentication, and more.
  • Organize sessions into folders.
  • Import sessions from SecureCRT for Windows, Mac, or Linux.
  • Run multiple sessions at the same time.
  • Connect to the same session or host multiple times.
  • Choose from emulations like VT100/102/220, ANSI, SCO ANSI, Wyse 50/60, Xterm, and Linux console. All emulations supported on SecureCRT for Windows, Mac, and Linux are supported on iOS.
  • Troubleshoot connections with trace options.
