Jul 03, 2012 (03:07 PM EDT)


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VanDyke Software, a developer of multi-platform terminal emulation software and security solutions, today announced the official release of SecureCRT 7.0. SecureCRT 7.0 provides customers on the Windows platform the ability to tile multiple sessions.

"Customers using tiling in this new version of SecureCRT have sent us positive feedback about being able to get more work done in less time," said Maureen Jett, product director for SecureCRT. "Tiling provides a big benefit when working on multiple network devices since they can view multiple sessions at once. Another major time saver is the ability to use the chat window to send commands to all tiled sessions and then see the resulting output."

A built-in TFTP server in SecureCRT 7.0 provides network administrators on Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms with a convenient way to manage an array of network devices, such as Cisco routers, from one application. One customer stated, "The addition of the connection-specific TFTP server has made it very convenient to manage all our Cisco devices without having to either leave the TFTP server running or remembering to turn it off when moving to the next task."

Also new in version 7.0 are the ability to skip authentication methods such as PublicKey or GSSAPI that might not be supported or configured on some systems, enhancements to mapping functions and buttons, and automatic updates to changed passwords in the Mac Keychain.
