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.

  • Tab Groups

    Tab groups, now on all platforms, 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.

  • Hex View

    Display session output in a hexadecimal view, which helps when debugging serial communication.

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 8.1

New

Tab groups for Mac and Linux
Get more done in less time using tab groups. Switch easily between sessions organized in tabs. Or create a temporary tab group so you can work in one tab while monitoring command output from another tab.

UI enhancements (Mac and Linux)
SecureCRT for Mac has a new GUI. Mac and Linux versions have new toolbar icons in the Session Manager and Connect dialog.

Enhanced serial support
A hex view helps to debug serial communication. When configuring serial sessions only, valid COM ports are shown in the Session Options dialog.

Command window enhancement
The Command window can now send commands to selected tab groups or visible sessions.

Keyword highlighting improvement
Quickly add keywords using a new right-click "Add keyword…" option.

Enhanced smart card support
On Mac and Linux, select a specific certificate on the smart card (PIV/CAC) to be used for public-key authentication. PKCS #11 certificates are supported. On all platforms, the username can be pulled directly from the specified certificate.

New public-key authentication options (Mac and Linux)
Certificates can be used as raw key. Public keys can be exported in Open SSH format and from PKCS #11.

SSH agent (Mac and Linux):
X.509v3 keys can be added to the SSH agent.
