SecureCRT 7.3® and SecureFX® 7.3 Beta Releases from VanDyke Software® Add Dockable Session Manager for Mac and Linux and Keyword Highlighting for SecureCRT

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VanDyke Software, a developer of multi-platform secure terminal emulation and secure­ file transfer software, today announced the beta releases of SecureCRT 7.3 and SecureFX 7.3.

SecureCRT 7.3 and SecureFX 7.3 now offer the popular dockable session manager on the Mac and Linux platforms and add a filter bar to the session manager for quickly locating sessions in the session database. The 7.3 releases also introduce an import/export tool that makes it easier to backup or copy settings from one machine to another.  Both applications now have the ability to generate and store larger keys in the SSH Agent, improving security.

SecureCRT 7.3 also improves productivity with enhanced keyword highlighting.  "In this release we've responded to customer requests for more extensive keyword highlighting," said Maureen Jett, Product Director for SecureCRT. "With the ability to specify colors and combine keyword attributes, system administrators can easily color code critical output that they want to have stand out and identify errors in log files or streaming output, or to highlight prompts.  In addition, on the Windows platform regular expressions can be used as keywords, allowing you to highlight important output such as IP address or keywords followed by number strings like 'error1', 'error2', and so on."

"SecureCRT is the single most important application that I actively work in during the day," said Casey Blackburn, a network engineer at Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP.  "Colorizing based on regular expressions opens up a world of possibilities, but just having the ability to make simple keywords such as 'no/down/initializing/error/fail' show red, and 'up/ready/success' show green has made me so much more productive.  I am no longer hunting through a wall of text hoping that I don't miss important information.  Now I can define what is important and the colors make it pop out on the screen automatically."

Also new in SecureCRT 7.3 are named pipes (Windows only) and scripting support for Kermit file transfers.  SecureFX adds PGP compatibility, making it possible to automatically execute the encryption and decryption process, a new SFXCL "resume" option for resuming interrupted transfers, and the ability to display filenames using UTF-8.

Availability of SecureCRT 7.3 beta and SecureFX 7.3 beta

VanDyke Software's SecureCRT is a terminal client that helps IT professionals manage secure remote access and securely "tunnel" email, web, and corporate application data.  SecureFX meets your evolving file transfer needs with a single application that lets you choose between SFTP, FTP over SSL (TLS), or SCP for secure transfers, or standard FTP for nonsecure transfers.

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
