ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VanDyke Software, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure file transfer software, today announced the beta releases of SecureCRT 7.3 and SecureFX 7.3.
SecureCRT 7.3 and SecureFX 7.3 now offer the popular dockable session manager on the Mac and Linux platforms and add a filter bar to the session manager for quickly locating sessions in the session database. The 7.3 releases also introduce an import/export tool that makes it easier to backup or copy settings from one machine to another. Both applications now have the ability to generate and store larger keys in the SSH Agent, improving security.
SecureCRT 7.3 also improves productivity with enhanced keyword highlighting. "In this release we've responded to customer requests for more extensive keyword highlighting," said Maureen Jett, Product Director for SecureCRT. "With the ability to specify colors and combine keyword attributes, system administrators can easily color code critical output that they want to have stand out and identify errors in log files or streaming output, or to highlight prompts. In addition, on the Windows platform regular expressions can be used as keywords, allowing you to highlight important output such as IP address or keywords followed by number strings like 'error1', 'error2', and so on."
"SecureCRT is the single most important application that I actively work in during the day," said Casey Blackburn, a network engineer at Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP. "Colorizing based on regular expressions opens up a world of possibilities, but just having the ability to make simple keywords such as 'no/down/initializing/error/fail' show red, and 'up/ready/success' show green has made me so much more productive. I am no longer hunting through a wall of text hoping that I don't miss important information. Now I can define what is important and the colors make it pop out on the screen automatically."
Also new in SecureCRT 7.3 are named pipes (Windows only) and scripting support for Kermit file transfers. SecureFX adds PGP compatibility, making it possible to automatically execute the encryption and decryption process, a new SFXCL "resume" option for resuming interrupted transfers, and the ability to display filenames using UTF-8.
