New VanDyke Software Release Supports Smarter File Transfers

Albuquerque, N.M. (February 19, 2002) — VanDyke Software™, a leading provider of security and access software, announced today the official release of its SecureFX® 2.0 file transfer client. A new command-line tool for scripting batch jobs allows network professionals to perform secure unattended file transfer operations. The addition of X.509 digital certificate support allows smart cards and other hardware-based tools to secure user public keys and access to physical computing resources.

"Network administrators and web professionals are getting smarter about the availability of new tools for secure file transfer," said Jeff P. Van Dyke, president of VanDyke Software. "With SecureFX 2.0, we've responded to strong customer demand for the ability to automate and secure file transfers with a single tool."

SecureFX can secure file transfers using the SFTP component of the SSH2™ open protocol or by tunneling conventional FTP over an encrypted SSH2 connection. The new release also adds a "relentless transfer" option that automatically reconnects and resumes file transfers if a connection is broken.

SecureFX 2.0 is priced at US$59.95 for a single license, US$500 for 10 licenses, and US$3500 for 100 licenses. SecureFX is also available in a bundled version with SecureCRT®, a secure remote access and tunneling client, for US$129.00. The software supports Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows ME, Windows 98, and Windows 95. Fully functional 30-day evaluation software may be downloaded worldwide from
