There are a number of terminal emulation clients that support SSH available for Windows. So how do you choose the right application for your organization? A number of considerations can help you find the client that helps maintain network security and streamline repetitive network administration tasks.
Efficiency Enhancing Features
Network administration entails a number of repetitive tasks. An ideal SSH terminal emulation client gives you tools to streamline and/or automate repetitive tasks to save time and reduce the errors introduced by manually (re)entering data.
SecureCRT® for Windows puts a number of tools to reduce repetitive work at your fingertips.
- Session connection data can be saved in the Session Manager database.
- Repetitive tasks and commands may be automated through scripts, mapped keys, and the customizable button bar.
You may also customize the environment to provide visual cues of a session's (in)activity and specify the location of the tab bar and button bar in a way that makes your work easier.
Multi-Platform Implementation Potential
Many networks are comprised of various systems. The ideal SSH terminal emulator is not only available for Windows, but also for other major platforms.
SecureCRT is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, making it possible for your organization to standardize on one SSH client.
Reliable Technical Support
The best SSH terminal emulation client is not necessarily the free client. Many free programs come without any technical support, leaving your IT professionals on their own to troubleshoot any issues in your environment.
SecureCRT, however, comes with the full support of VanDyke Software's own in-house experts. We provide technical support even during your free 30-day evaluation period. With the help of our technical support team, you can test our SSH terminal emulation client on your Windows systems to ensure a smooth rollout.
SSH clients support connections using the Secure Shell protocol only if the remote machine supports the protocol as well. To increase the likelihood of compatibility, the SSH client should support both SSH1 and SSH2.
VanDyke Software's terminal emulation client does one better. Not only does SecureCRT for Windows support SSH1 and SSH2, it supports Telnet/SSL as well as Telnet and serial protocols.
SecureCRT may be the best choice for an SSH terminal emulation client. A host of time-saving features, multi-platform support, and multi-protocol support give SecureCRT the potential to help network administrators make their work more efficient.
