SecureCRT®

SecureCRT client for Windows, Mac, and Linux provides rock-solid terminal emulation for computing professionals, raising productivity with advanced session management and a host of ways to save time and streamline repetitive tasks. SecureCRT provides secure remote access, file transfer, and data tunneling for everyone in your organization.

Whether you are replacing Telnet or Terminal, or need a more capable secure remote access tool, SecureCRT is an application you can live in all day long. With the solid security of SSH, extensive session management, and advanced scripting, SecureCRT will help raise your productivity to the nth degree.

  • Color Schemes

    Pre-defined color schemes, including Solarized, make it easy to change the look of your terminal workspace. Choose from a variety of light and dark color combinations with coordinated background, foreground, and ANSI colors.

  • Tab Groups

    Tab groups allow you to compare the output of two sessions and group related sessions in the same SecureCRT window so that you can get more done in less time. You can organize sessions in tabs and switch easily between them. Or you can work in one tab while monitoring the output from a command in another tab and then go back to a single tab group when the command has finished.

  • Emulations

    Choose from a wide range of terminal emulation including TN3270, VT100, VT102, VT220, ANSI, SCO ANSI, Wyse 50/60, Xterm, and Linux console - all with color schemes and most with ANSI color support.

  • Button Bar

    Map buttons to commands or actions, such as sending strings, running scripts, menu functions, and protocol commands, or launching external programs like your favorite editor, cmd.exe, or regedit. You can create different button bars for specific sessions or operations and assign a color to the button icons so that they are easier to see and organize.

  • Command Window

    The Command window gives you a way to compose text before sending it to the remote system. Using the command history, you can view, edit, and send previous commands. "Send Characters Immediately" mode allows you to type control characters and escape sequences in the Command window so that you can edit files, stop running commands, and do tab completion. You can be even more productive by issuing commands to all connected sessions, all visible sessions, or specific tab groups.

Key Benefits

Securely access business applications on UNIX, Linux, or VMS from machines running Windows, Linux, and Mac — employ the rich emulation support for VT100/102/220, TN3270, ANSI, SCO ANSI, Wyse 50/60, Xterm, and Linux console.

Configure, manage, and organize all your sessions with full control over scrollback, key mappings, colors, fonts, and more — whether you have one or thousands of sessions.

Access your full array of network devices from one client with SSH (SSH2, SSH1), Telnet, Telnet/TLS, serial, and other protocols.

Leverage the high-productivity GUI with time-saving capabilities including multi-session launch, tabbed sessions, tab groups, tiled sessions, cloned sessions, a button bar for repeated commands, and mapped keys.

Depend on the open standard Secure Shell (SSH) protocol for encrypted logon and session data, flexible authentication options, and optional FIPS 140-2 -approved ciphers.

Automate repetitive tasks in SecureCRT by running scripts using VBScript, JScript, PerlScript, or Python. The script recorder builds your keystrokes into a VBScript or Python script.

Transfer files between network devices with SFTP, Xmodem, Ymodem, Zmodem, or Kermit. A built-in TFTP server provides additional file transfer flexibility.

Save steps with the close integration of SecureCRT and the SecureFX® file transfer client, which share sessions and settings that let you run SFTP, FTP, SCP, and FTP/TLS file transfer sessions without reentering passwords.

New in SecureCRT 8.3

New

Enhanced ANSI color
New built-in ANSI color schemes, including Solarized, make it easy to change the look of your terminal workspace. Choose from a variety of light and dark color combinations, all of which have coordinated background, foreground, and ANSI color combinations.

Line rewrapping
When the SecureCRT window is resized, the text in the terminal area is rewrapped.

Connect bar auto complete
Connect bar auto complete begins filtering as you type, making it easier to find and connect to saved sessions.

Paste confirmation dialog
A paste confirmation dialog option allows you to preview the contents of the paste buffer before pasting multiple lines of text into a session. This helps prevent accidental pasting of buffer contents into a production or other critical server.

Drag and drop multiple sessions
Multiple sessions can be dragged and dropped or copied and pasted in the Session Manager and Connect dialog.

Session management
Filtered searches in the Session Manager and Connect bar are faster, which is helpful when the session database is large or located on a network drive.

Larger recent sessions list
Up to 16 sessions can now be included on the recent session list.

Encryption enhancements
Support has been added for the SSH2 ChaCha20/Poly1305 and AES-GCM ciphers and the UMAC-128 MAC algorithm. OpenSSH certificates can now be used for authenticating SSH2 sessions.

Scripting enhancements
Scripting enhancements include the ability to script session locking from the Session object. A global INI-file-only option to specify the script path has also been added.

Other enhancements
If a session cannot be cloned or connected using SFTP on the existing SSH transport, SecureCRT will create a new transport. The "Update Now" menu item is now also available for the Mac, which checks for a newer version of SecureCRT. New to the Mac and now on all platforms, arguments can be passed to a local application that is launched when a tunnel is established.
