SecureCRT 9.4 (Official) and SecureFX 9.4 (Official) from VanDyke Software Enhance User Experience with a Dynamic System Display Theme and New Session Manager Icons

On Windows, SecureFX and SecureCRT add a system display theme to ensure the application matches preferred light or dark mode.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure file transfer software, today announced new official releases of SecureCRT® 9.4 and SecureFX® 9.4.

Enhanced Application Interface Improves Visual Experience and Ease of Use

"With this release of SecureCRT and SecureFX, we've added several new features that improve the GUI and help align the application look and feel with the customer's system colors," said Maureen Jett, Product Director. "On Windows, a system display theme allows SecureCRT and SecureFX customers to synchronize their application with their preferred light or dark mode system settings. Additionally, SecureCRT adds dynamic terminal color settings on all platforms."

On the Windows platform, SecureCRT and SecureFX icons in the Session Manager now reflect the session's protocol, making it easier to visually identify the session type prior to makng connections.

SecureCRT also allows most dialogs to be resized to fit more information.

RDP Enhancements
SecureCRT for Windows adds the ability for RDP sessions to redirect audio, printers, clipboard, and keyboard shortcuts.

Administrative Options Help Enforce Security Best Practices
SecureCRT and SecureFX for Windows add an administrative option that helps enforce security best practices by preventing host keys from being saved. An additional administrative option in SecureCRT disallows the anti-idle capabilities, giving administrators more control over system resources.

Improved TLS Compatibility, Certificate Support, and Audio Notification in SecureFX

A new option allows OpenSSL to be used for TLS connections, providing support for TLS 1.3 on Windows 10 as well as better compatibility with FTPS, HTTPS, and servers using OpenSSL. For Windows 11, FTP/TLS and HTTPS sessions now support TLS 1.3. Other SecureFX improvements include enhanced certificate support and the ability to play a sound when a synchronization operation completes.

New Algorithm Support
SecureCRT and SecureFX now support x509v3-ecdsa-sha2 algorithms for keys stored in a .pfx or .p12 file (RFC 6187).
