SecureCRT 7.1 Official Adds Tiled Sessions to Mac and Linux Versions

Albuquerque, N.M. (May 2, 2013) — VanDyke Software® today announced the official release of SecureCRT® 7.1, a Secure Shell terminal emulator for Windows, Mac, and Linux. SecureCRT 7.1 brings tiled sessions to Mac and Linux versions, and adds the ability to set up dependent sessions for connecting with jump hosts.

"Tiled sessions have increased productivity for our customers on the Windows platform and we are pleased to now offer this time-saver to our Mac and Linux customers," said Maureen Jett, product director for SecureCRT. "Tiling helps troubleshoot issues by allowing you to quickly compare the content of tiled 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."

Also new in SecureCRT 7.1 is a dependent session option that can be used to link a session to an SSH2 session that it depends on, which allows connection to a jump host before connecting to other sessions.

Productivity enhancements in this release include the ability to send a button bar command to all connected tabbed or tiled sessions using SHIFT+<click>, and a character send delay option to wait for a text prompt, which allows data to be sent as fast as the remote system can handle. In addition, SecureCRT 7.1 now supports Kermit file transfers and, on the Windows platform, support for SHA1 in RSA signatures allows X.509 certificates to be used in FIPS mode.

SecureCRT 7.1 provides optional integration with SecureFX 7.1 secure file transfer client on Windows, Mac, and Linux. The integrated clients provide easy access to shared sessions and settings, including host key databases.
