SecureCRT 8.7 and SecureFX 8.7 from VanDyke Software Help System Administrators Work Faster and More Efficiently

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure­ file transfer software, today announced the official release of SecureCRT® 8.7 and SecureFX® 8.7.

SecureCRT and SecureFX 8.7 Support Windows 10 and macOS Catalina
For organizations making the switch from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10, SecureCRT and SecureFX 8.7 are compatible.  They are also compatible with macOS Catalina, including support for Dark Mode.

SecureCRT 8.7 Keyword Highlighting Enhancements Simplify Device Management
In environments with large numbers of connected devices, the ability to do word, phrase, and substring matching and use regular expressions in keyword highlighting makes device management easier.

"The enhanced regex capabilities of SecureCRT 8.7 paired with endless color-coding options (for keyword highlighting) allow me to efficiently identify outliers, visually scan and filter results very quickly, and highlight errors and inconsistencies that I would have otherwise missed," said Alan Skinner at Cox Communications.

New Command Manager in SecureCRT for Windows Streamlines Repetitive Tasks
For customers who wanted more buttons than could fit on the button bar, the new Command Manager (Windows only) provides a simple way to organize commands into named folders.  

According to Shawn R. Hill, CISSP CCS at AT&T, "The Command Manager has completely revamped the 'Button' experience. The ability to create a command tree list — sorted per vendor device type, environment, and even versions — exponentially improves the functionality of SecureCRT.  Having the right commands, already proven to work from prior use and ready to go at the click of a mouse, is a huge time saver during troubleshooting sessions and outage mitigation efforts."

SecureFX 8.7 Adds Multiple Local Windows and HTTPS (WebDAV)
SecureFX 8.7 enhances productivity with a new option to pair each remote session with its own local window.

The addition of HTTPS (WebDAV) increases SecureFX's flexibility for organizations that use multiple transfer protocols.

SecureCRT 8.7 and SecureFX 8.7 Include Technical Support During Evaluation
