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.
SecureFX 6.0 introduces new features that save you valuable time like quick synchronize support for mirroring with delete, an editable address bar showing the current path of local or remote sessions, and the ability to resolve symbolic links. User interface enhancements include Windows display themes and drag-and-drop customization of toolbar and menu items. Other new features are a combined installer for SecureFX and SecureCRT, support for U3 smart drives, and MSI installers to simplify and automate distribution and installation.
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. SecureCRT and SecureFX can share passwords and passphrases while either application or the Activator utility is running, and both SecureCRT and SecureFX sessions are displayed on the Activator menu. Launch either application from a toolbar button and specify a session to connect to. A combined installer is available that installs both clients and their DLLs into the same folder, making it easy to install SecureCRT and SecureFX and keep them in sync.
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.
File transfer presents a unique set of challenges in today's security conscious world. New regulations and rules designed to protect personal information are being issued on a regular basis. Customers, business prospects, and partners demand that their information be treated securely. And organisations are more distributed today than ever before with multiple locations, highly mobile employees traveling the globe or telecommuting, and file servers that may be half a world away in a data center or at a service provider.
The IT Manager
is responsible for making sure that every employee, business partner, and customer has the ability to upload and download the files they need while providing strong security that complies with regulations and your organisation's policies. SecureFX can connect to any SFTP, FTP over SSL, or FTP server and, when combined with VShell, VanDyke's advanced SSH2 server, can provide virtual directories for every user or group you support that limit access to just the files they need.
The Network Administrator
faces file transfer tasks on an everyday basis. You might be collecting log files from a number of remote servers, synchronising end-user information, or performing server-to-server transfers for backup and archiving. SecureFX is the ideal tool for all of these tasks and more. Scriptable and interactive command-line tools let you automate and schedule secure, unattended transfers when server loads are low. You can also work easily from any machine by installing SecureFX on your U3 drive.
The Web Master's
day includes a constant stream of files as content is updated, logs are downloaded, and multiple servers are kept in sync. The Quick Sync feature gives you secure, one-click synchronisation between your local files and your web server. Routine tasks can be automated using the SFXCL command-line utility and interactive tasks can be handled in SecureFX's convenient interface that allows you to drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste a file to or from the desktop or remote servers for instant site updates.
The Software Developer
transfers source code, daily builds, and test code every day. A file transfer application that works seamlessly with your terminal emulator can make managing these tasks easier. SecureFX and SecureCRT are integrated, which simplifies the process of creating and managing sessions that can be used by both applications.
Road Warriors, business partners
, and customers need to know that confidential files can be transferred to and from any location - whether it's a hotel room, a customer site, or the airport terminal. Access to file servers has to be fast and easy. SecureFX's drag-and-drop features let you transfer a file to or from the Windows desktop, an Explorer window, or another application like WinZip. And relentless file transfers automatically reconnect and resume your file transfer when an unreliable connection disconnects you. For complete portability, install SecureFX on a U3 smart drive using the SecureFX U3 installer.
