SecureFX lets you choose between SFTP or FTP over SSL (TLS) for secure transfers, or standard FTP for nonsecure transfers. It has an easy to use, Explorer-like interface with full support for drag-and-drop file transfers to and from the desktop and other applications. At the same time, SecureFX provides you with the power to automate secure file transfers, synchronize local and remote files, and perform server-to-server transfers.
SecureFX is a high-security file transfer client with great flexibility in configuration and transfer protocols. SecureFX includes a command-line utility for scripting batch jobs to perform secure unattended file transfers using the Secure Shell protocol (SSH). SecureFX also supports "relentless" file transfers that automatically reconnect and resume when transfer connections are broken.
Key Features :
• Drag and drop: SecureFX allows you to drag and drop (or copy and paste) files to and from Windows Explorer, the desktop, and other applications (e.g., WinZip), letting you transfer files more easily.
• Integration with SecureCRT: SecureFX and SecureCRT can share the global options, session options, and the host key database so you only need to perform operations like setting application defaults, sessions settings, or accepting a server's host key once. Logon is simplified with password and passphrase caching, which allow both application to share passwords and passphrases while either application or the Activator utility is running. You can launch either application from a Toolbar button, and SecureFX will automatically open a session in SecureCRT if that session specifies a terminal protocol.
• Multi-file transfers: Support for resuming multiple-file transfers. All remaining files in the transfer list are completed after a broken connection is reestablished.
• File permission tools: Support for changing permissions on multiple files at once. When connected to VShell® for Windows version 2.2 or higher, the Properties dialog for the remote file or folder has a Security tab that allows ACL permissions to be viewed.
• FIPS 140-2 support: When the administrative option to run in "FIPS Mode" is set, SecureFX uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library and only allows FIPS-approved algorithms.
SecureFX 4.5 introduces new time-saving features, transfer queue enhancements, and support for Windows Vista. Automatically connect multiple sessions or folders on startup using the new auto session capabilities. Drag and drop files to the transfer queue and control the appearance of the transfer queue window. Integration with SecureCRT® is improved with password caching and the ability to launch SecureCRT from a toolbar button.
New for SecureFX 4.5:
New productivity enhancements:
* Improved auto session: With "Use auto session" enabled, you can now select a single session, multiple sessions, or folders of sessions to automatically connect on startup.
* Cache passwords: SSH2 session passwords can be cached like passphrases. SecureCRT and SecureFX can share passwords while either application or the Activator utility is running.
* Improved integration with SecureCRT: A new toolbar button lets you launch SecureCRT from within SecureFX. If the current session specifies a terminal protocol, that session will open in SecureCRT.
Transfer queue enhancements:
* Drag and drop files to the transfer queue: SecureFX now supports dragging files to the transfer queue.
* Control appearance of the transfer queue window: You can now resize the transfer queue window and hide and show columns.
- Support for OpenSSH format keys: You can now generate keys in OpenSSH format or convert existing VanDyke Software format private keys to OpenSSH format, allowing you to use the same keys with other Secure Shell clients.
- Support for [email protected] compression: When [email protected] compression is specified, compression starts after authentication, preventing unencrypted passwords from being cached by the zlib library.
- Windows Vista support: SecureFX has been tested under Windows Vista, so when you are ready to move to Vista, SecureFX will be compatible.
