SecureFX for Mac delivers complete functionality right out of the gate, with multiple protocols that include SFTP, SCP, FTP over TLS, and FTP. SecureFX is a flexible, secure file transfer application with a visual interface that is easy to learn. SecureFX offers advanced features like site synchronization and automation to help web designers and network administrators streamline everyday tasks. Integration with SecureCRT saves time with shared sessions and settings.
Connect bar auto complete
Auto complete in the Connect bar begins filtering as you type, making it easier to find and connect to saved sessions.
Drag and drop multiple sessions
Multiple sessions can be dragged and dropped or copied and pasted in the Session Manager and Connect dialog.
Larger recent sessions list
Up to 16 sessions can now be included on the recent session list.
Support has been added for the SSH2 ChaCha20/Poly1305 and AES-GCM ciphers and the UMAC-128 MAC algorithm. OpenSSH certificates can now be used for authenticating SSH2 sessions.
Synchronization is now faster when working with large numbers of files and folders.
Update improvement (new for Mac)
The “Update Now” menu item is now also available for the Mac. Check for a newer version of SecureFX, and if available, click on a button to download and install the new version.
New SFXCL exit codes
It is now easier to script file transfers with the ability to take actions based on exit codes that indicate why the operation failed.
SecureFX supports password, public key, Kerberos v5 (via GSSAPI), and keyboard interactive when connecting to SSH2 servers. Public key support includes RSA (up to 16,384 bits), Ed25519, ECDSA (RFC 5656), DSA, PuTTY PPK, OpenSSH certificates, and X.509 (Windows) including smart cards (PIV/CAC). Support for FTP/TLS mutual authentication is supported using self-signed certificates.
Public Key Assistant
Support for Public Key Assistant makes uploading public keys to an SSH2 server simple and safe for end users.
Choose from a wide selection of ciphers including ChaCha20/Poly1305, AES-GCM, AES-128-CTR, AES-192-CTR, AES-256-CTR, AES-128, AES-192, AES-256, Twofish, Blowfish, 3DES, and RC4 to ensure strong data encryption.
Guarantee the integrity of each message sent over the network (preventing replay or insertion attacks).
Host identity verification
Unique server host key proves its identity to a client as a “known” host (preventing a man in the middle attack).
X.509 certificate user authentication support
Smart card-based public-key authentication using X.509-compatible certificates supports highly secure two-factor authentication. SecureFX supports the PKCS #12 (.pfx) standard file format for X.509 certificates and private keys (Windows). PKCS #11 is also supported, allowing a cryptographic token interface to be used. X.509 host key checking automatically accepts the host key if the certificate is valid.
Support for GSSAPI secured key exchange for SSH2 connections. Mechanisms supported depend on GSSAPI provider. Only the Kerberos v5 mechanism has been tested. For SSH2 connections, the Server Principal Name (SPN) can be specified in the GSSAPI Properties dialog.
Support for pre- and post- transfer commands allows actions such as PGP encryption and decryption to be executed.
Multiple protocol support
SecureFX supports SSH2, SFTP, FTP/TLS, SCP, and legacy FTP in a single client, providing the maximum in flexibility when connecting to a range of remote servers. Support for RFC 2228 Clear Command Channel “CCC” provides enhanced compatibility with TLS servers.
Support for SFTP through version 6.
Select local and remote folders or server-to-server. Choose from upload, download, and mirror options, then fine tune file selection in the synchronization window. Filtering with wildcard support allows files to be included or excluded during a synchronize operation, which makes it possible to do things like exclude an .svn folder. To save set up time, Quick Synchronize and Synchronize dialogs optionally use paths from the active sessions for synchronize operations. Multiple sites are easy to keep synchronized with a synchronize database that supports saving, editing, and executing synchronize operations. Quick synchronize mirror with delete automatically deletes files or folders that are not on the source from the destination, allowing you to exactly match the destination and source. This is also supported in SFXCL (Windows only).
Synchronized file browsing
A “Synchronize File Browsing” option allows lockstep navigation of local and remote folders that have the same directory structure.
Multiple simultaneous connections and transfers
Set up all of your connections and transfers in one SecureFX application window — avoid cluttering your desktop.
Complete overwrite control
Eliminate accidental overwrites of files with SecureFX’s option to configure the action for existing files. Options include: “confirm,” “always,” “never,” or “if older.”
“Relentless” file transfer
Automatically reconnect after a broken connection and resume the transfer.
Resume file transfers
Resumes transfer of one or more files — saves time, especially with large files.
The built-in task scheduler allows you to schedule transfer and synchronize operations. Tasks can be run once or set to run at daily, weekly, or monthly intervals.
“Throttle” transfer bandwidth
Limit the bandwidth used during file transfers to keep from consuming all available bandwidth.
Specify number of parallel transfers
Specify the number of parallel file transfers, and as transfers are completed, queued files will continually fill available slots.
Transfer and delete files in one step with the /Move flag in the SFXCL command-line utility (Windows only). Drag-and-drop move is also supported by holding down the ALT or SHIFT key.
When connected to a host, you can now queue up files to be transferred. Transfers are done serially, preventing errors if the remote FTP server doesn’t allow multiple connections. Drag files to the transfer queue, resize the transfer queue window, and hide or show columns.
File transfer server support
A wide range of file transfer servers is supported by SecureFX including MVS, VMS, Windows, UNIX, and many others.
SFTP ASCII file transfer option
Text format files can be sent as raw text rather than in binary format for more compatible transfers of files like HTML and server logs between different operating systems.
