VanDyke 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. This FXP client is a high-security file transfer application with great flexibility in configuration and transfer protocols.
VanDyke SecureFX includes a command-line utility for scripting batch jobs to perform secure unattended file transfers using the Secure Shell protocol (SSH). It also supports “relentless” file transfers that automatically reconnect and resume when transfer connections are broken.
VanDyke SecureFX Key Benefits:
- Maintain file systems and documents securely. Transfer files across networks and the internet with a choice of SFTP over SSH2, FTP over SSL, 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.
- 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 and Linux only) allows you to automate tasks with powerful options like site synchronization.
- Comply with Federal standards. Use security protocols that help meet HIPAA, SOX, and other guidelines, including FIPS 140-2.
- When the latest version of SecureFX was installed, running “Check for Updates” or “Update Now” incorrectly reported that an update was available.
- Windows: On high DPI monitors with a large scaling factor set, text displayed on the Keyboard Interactive authentication prompt could have been cut off.
- Windows: When using CAPI to access a certificate located on a smart card and the CAPI store contained multiple certificates, there could be a delay before being prompted for the smart card pin.
- HTTPS: When connecting to an HTTPS (WebDAV) server, if a failed authentication attempt was immediately followed by a successful attempt, the connection still failed.
- Mac/Linux: Text displayed on the Keyboard Interactive and View Host Key dialogs could not be selected or copied.
- Windows: When synchronized file browsing was enabled, changing folders in rapid succession in the local window could have resulted in a crash.
- Mac: Attempting to authenticate using a YubiKey smartcard with the “opensc-pkcs11.so” library specified as the PKCS#11 provider resulted in an error, because the library could not be loaded.
- Mac/Linux: If the remote directory specified for a synchronize operation already existed, certain servers returned a “File not found” error instead of a “File exists” error when SecureFX attempted to create the remote directory. This caused SecureFX to terminate the synchronize operation. SecureFX now checks to see if the remote directory already exists and continues with the synchronize operation.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 8.7.1 (March 17, 2020):
- SSH2: When doing public-key authentication, if there is no corresponding private-key file without an extension and there is a private-key file with a .ppk extension, it will be used.
- Mac/Linux: When ENTER is pressed on a folder in the Session Manager, it is expanded or collapsed. Previously, all the sessions in the folder were connected.
- When transferring multiple files at once to or from a Microsoft IIS FTP server, some of the transfers may not have completed.
- In the Manage Agent Keys dialog, the columns expanded every time the dialog opened, which eventually caused all column headers to disappear.
- Mac/Linux: In the Session Manager, when attempting to give a folder a name that conflicted with an existing folder name, the original or default name was used, instead of allowing a different name to be specified.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 8.7 (February 11, 2020):
- SFTP: Keyboard-interactive authentication works with a prompt that contains “password” with any combination of upper and lower case letters (e.g., “Password” or “PASSWORD”).
- SFXCL: Keyboard-interactive authentication works with a prompt that contains “password” with any combination of upper and lower case letters (e.g., “Password” or “PASSWORD”).
New in VanDyke SecureFX 8.5:
- Bookmark enhancements. A Bookmark Manager makes it easier for you to add, delete, and edit bookmarks as well as copy them from another session. The File menu and the file view context menu now show all bookmarks.
- Single application window. If SecureFX is already running and a new SecureFX session is launched from SecureCRT, from the system desktop, or from the command line, the new session will open in the existing SecureFX application window.
- SFXCL enhancements (Windows only). New parameters have been added for customizing output and to give you more options for automated file transfers.
