Remotely Access Machines over the Internet

You can increase the effectiveness and responsiveness of your IT staff by giving them secure access to servers throughout your enterprise without compromising the security and integrity of your data. Nearly every server can be accessed remotely and securely with our SecureCRT® client and the VShell® server.  

VanDyke Software secure remote access software supports encryption and data protection protocols that are far superior to Telnet. Using Telnet as your remote access protocol can be a serious vulnerability because every bit of data you send and receive is sent in the clear, including your usernames and passwords. Replacing Telnet with SecureCRT client and VShell server software, allows you to secure your server without compromising your need for remote access and remote server management.

VShell - Secure Remote Server Software

To create a secure server environment, whether on the LAN, WAN, or Internet, use VShell server. The VShell server is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS, and allows clients to perform secure file transfer and data tunneling (port forwarding). The many advanced features allow your system administrators to easily configure the server, define user and group access, and automate events by setting trigger conditions.

SecureCRT - Secure Remote Client Software

Secure remote access requires the proper tools on the client end as well. SecureCRT, our terminal emulation software, allows remote access to a Windows, Linux, or Mac server via secure protocols, including:

  • SSH2
  • SSH1
  • Telnet/TLS

(SecureCRT also supports older, unsecured protocols including Telnet, Rlogin, serial, and TAPI.)

The many advanced features of SecureCRT include a highly customizable user interface that allows you to work faster and more efficiently.
