New beta release of SecureFX 7.0 from VanDyke Software adds powerful filter controls to secure file transfer

Albuquerque, N.M. (May 23, 2012) — VanDyke Software®, a developer of multi-platform terminal emulation software and security solutions, today announced the public beta release of SecureFX® 7.0. Offering flexible, secure file transfer to network administrators and web developers, this latest release adds filtering to the file/folder view.

The new filtering feature makes locating specific folders and files in local and remote sessions faster and easier. Wildcards provide a simple way to find the exact set of files to be transferred.

Also new in SecureFX 7.0 is enhanced synchronization. The synchronize file list now automatically refreshes when changes are made to files on the local system and a "Refresh" button lets you re-synchronize without having to close the synchronize tab. Improved synchronization speed means synchronizing large numbers of files is now faster.

The SFXCL file transfer utility provides new capabilities for specifying explicit FTPS and changing permissions of remote files using the "/Chmod" command-line option. SFXCL automates routine secure file transfer operations with batch scripts and can be combined with public-key-only authentication for secure unattended file transfer processes.

Interface enhancements improve productivity with the ability to customize the position of the local window tab and quicker access to bookmarks through the right-click menu or "File" menu.

Availability of SecureFX 7.0 (beta)

SecureFX meets your evolving file transfer needs with a single application that lets you choose between SFTP, FTP over SSL (TLS), or SCP for secure transfers, or standard FTP for nonsecure transfers. A tabbed, Explorer-like interface makes SecureFX easy to learn and use while offering powerful automation capabilities for unattended, secure file transfers. To download a fully-functional evaluation copy of SecureFX 7.0 (beta), visit the VanDyke Software website at The 30-day evaluation period includes access to VanDyke Software’s technical support group.
