  • Multiple Local Windows

    Open as many local windows as you need. For improved productivity, you have a new option to pair the remote session with its own local window.

  • Site Synchronization

    SecureFX site synchronization handles upload, download, and true mirroring transfers between a local and remote system or between two remote systems (server-to-server). Filter your file selection with wildcard support, and store commonly used configurations in the synchronize database for quick recall.

  • Resume Interrupted Transfers

    SecureFX assures recovery when transfers are interrupted, automatically resuming multi-file transfers. Relentless file transfer automatically reconnects and resumes transfer after a broken connection.

  • Multiple Protocols

    SecureFX gives you a choice of SSH2 SFTP, FTPS (FTP/TLS), HTTPS (WebDAV), SCP, or FTP and HTTP for access to legacy systems - all in a single client - providing the maximum in flexibility when connecting to a range of remote servers.

  • Multi-Platform Support

    Network professionals and their users can run the same file transfer application on Windows, Mac, and Linux workstations, with common functionality and user interface. Add close integration with SecureCRT and you have a powerful system for maximum productivity.

Key Benefits

Maintain file systems and documents securely. Transfer files across networks and the internet with a choice of SFTP over SSH2, FTPS (FTP/TLS), SCP, or FTP for access to legacy systems.

Get started quickly. Connect to sessions from the main application window using the Connect bar, then organize those sessions with the easy-to-learn tabbed interface.

Leverage the high-productivity UI. Drag and drop files to start transfers (Windows only), even between SecureFX and applications like WinZip. Quickly find the files you want to work with using the filter view, bookmarks, and the address bar.

Synchronize files. Upload, download, and mirror files. Use filtering to include or exclude files or file types. Store configurations for multiple sites.

Recover more easily when transfers fail. SecureFX works to complete interrupted transfers, automatically resuming multi-file transfers.

Implement smart cards for highly secure, two-factor authentication. SecureFX supports X.509 smart cards (PIV/CAC) with the ability to select a specific certificate to be used for public-key authentication.

Save steps with integrated SecureFX and SecureCRT®. Set up connections with shared sessions and server host keys. Common sessions and settings reduce repeated steps.

Make transfers unattended. The SFXCL command-line client (Windows only) allows you to automate tasks with powerful options like site synchronization. You can also use the built-in task scheduler (Windows only) to schedule transfer and synchronize operations once or at recurring intervals.

Comply with Federal standards. Use security protocols that help meet HIPAA, SOX, and other guidelines, including FIPS 140-2.

New in SecureFX 8.7


Multiple local windows
You can now open multiple local windows within SecureFX. When doing synchronized browsing, the remote session will be paired with its own local window.

Session folder filter
Include top-level folders in the Session Manager or Connect dialog filtered sessions by adding a forward slash to the end of the search text in the session filter box. Folders that match and the sessions in those folders are included in the filtered sessions. Partial matches are supported, making it even faster to find the session you’re looking for.

Dark mode support (Mac)
Dark Mode support has been added on macOS 10.14 and later.

WebDAV support
SecureFX can now connect using the HTTPS (WebDAV) transfer protocol.

Specify TLS versions (Windows)
A global option allows you to specify which TLS versions are allowed.

Remote same-system copy
When a remote file is copied to another location on the same server, the file is not downloaded to the remote system first. This feature works with SFTP servers that support the "copy-file" SFTP extension, HTTP WebDAV servers, and some SCP servers.

Local proxy command support
A new firewall type, "Proxy command", allows a local proxy command to be run when connecting to a remote server.

New algorithm support
SecureFX now supports x509v3-ecdsa-sha2 algorithms per RFC 6187 for PKCS #11 as well as SSH2 support for the diffie-hellman-group14-sha256, diffie-hellman-group16-sha512, and diffie-hellman-group18-sha512 key-exchange algorithms.

Improved synchronize URL support
Transfer URLs like “sftp://” and “https://” can be specified as the remote source/target session for synchronize operations in both SecureFX and the SFXCL command-line utility.

SFXCL enhancements
Wildcards can be used with the /CHMOD command-line option.

Platform support
Support for Ubuntu 19.x and macOS 10.15 Catalina has been added.
