VanDyke Software® announces new tiled GUI for SecureCRT 7.0 beta

Session tiling in SecureCRT for Windows improves productivity for network administrators

Albuquerque, N.M. (May 3, 2012) —VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform terminal emulation software and security solutions, today announced the public beta release of SecureCRT® 7.0. This new release provides SecureCRT 7.0 customers on the Windows® platform the ability to tile multiple sessions.

"Tiling was a highly requested feature and the feedback from pre-release testers is that it’s a huge time saver," said Maureen Jett, product director for SecureCRT. "Previously, multiple sessions could be viewed simultaneously by arranging multiple SecureCRT windows, but tiling makes it much more convenient and it’s easy to switch between tiled and tabbed sessions. The chat window can also be used with tiled sessions, making it possible to send commands to all sessions and see the resulting output, which also helps customers get more done faster."

SecureCRT 7.0 also provides network administrators on Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms with a built-in TFTP server. The TFTP server provides a convenient way to manage an array of network devices, including Cisco routers, from one application. Also new in version 7.0 is 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.
