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.
- Bug Fix: Windows: In certain cases, when moving focus from the hostname field to the port field using the tab key, the text contained within the port field was not selected.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 9.2.0 (April 26, 2022):
- Credentials Manager. A built-in Credentials Manager simplifies password management. With shared credentials, you can change a password in a single location and no longer need to manually locate and update individual sessions.
- SCP sudo command. Switch to a different user after an SCP connection is established using the configurable SCP sudo command.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 9.1.1 (March 18, 2021):
- New Feature: Windows: SecureFX 9.1.1 is compatible with Windows 11.
- Bug Fix: After a synchronize operation completed, the transaction statistics displayed in the log reported an incorrect number of file transfers and did not report the number of files that were deleted.
What’s New in VanDyke SecureFX 9.1 :
- macOS Big Sur. SecureFX now supports Big Sur.
- Updated toolbar (macOS). The toolbar has been integrated with the title bar, preserving more screen space for your most important work.
- Display theme enhancement (Windows). The display theme’s foreground and background colors are used everywhere, which gives the remote and local panes a light background for light themes and a dark background for dark themes.
- Improved S3 support. A new HTTPS (S3) transfer protocol supports S3-compatible services and makes it easier to create AWS S3 sessions.
- Algorithm support. SecureFX now supports OpenSSH Agent for the rsa-sha2-256 and rsa-sha2-512 signature formats.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 9.0.1 (March 18, 2021):
- Change: Restored the ability to use the SHA1-96 and MD5-96 MACs.
- Bug fix: If the remote server was shut down during a synchronize operation, SecureFX did not automatically attempt to reconnect to the server.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 8.7.3 (August 11, 2020):
- 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.
Changes in VanDyke SecureFX 8.7.2 (May 14, 2020):
- 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”).
