Benefits of SecureCRT

Benefits of SecureCRT®

SecureCRT is a feature-rich terminal emulation client that offers significant benefits that help system administrators save time and money.


SecureCRT is available for most major platforms—Windows®, Mac, and Linux, and it supports a wide range of terminal emulations:

SecureCRT also supports a number of secure protocols:

  • SSH1
  • SSH2
  • Telnet/SSL (Windows only)

Using Secure Shell protocols also allows you to maintain FIPS compliance by only applying algorithms included in FIPS 140-2-validated cryptography libraries*.

Support for multiple platforms, emulations, and connection protocols minimize compatibility issues, allowing you to implement one terminal emulation client organization-wide.

Increased Productivity

SecureCRT's key features and advanced session management allow you to customize thousands of sessions, edit multiple sessions, and organize saved sessions into multiple levels of folders.

The easy-to-use interface displays active sessions as tabbed or tiled sessions. SecureCRT also has a number of task automation tools, including:

  • Scripting/script recorder
  • Customizable button bar
  • Custom keyboard mapping
  • Command window

When connected using a secure protocol (SSH1, SSH2, Telnet/SSL), users can also securely transfer files between network devices using:

  • SFTP (only available when connected with SSH2)
  • Xmodem
  • Ymodem
  • Zmodem
  • Kermit

You may also launch VanDyke Software's secure file transfer client—SecureFX®—from SecureCRT (when SecureCRT/SecureFX integrated version is installed).
