SSH Clients Apps and Alternatives

Secure Shell, or SSH for short, is a cryptographic network protocol which offers a secure communication channel between computers, making it a must-have for most users and system administrators out there. The protocol is implemented with the help of a client-server architecture, meaning that it usually implies connecting an SSH client application to an SSH server. Users should note that there are two major versions of this protocol, called SSH1 or SSH-1 and SSH2 or SSH-2.

Up until recently, Microsoft Windows was one of the few operating systems which didn't include SSH by default. That is why, users who are currently running any version of Windows apart from the latest Windows 10, might be interested in employing the services of third-party SSH clients. The main advantage of such application is the provided convenience they bring with what are usually very well-thought-out user interfaces.

Users are provided with a broad range of SSH clients, from very basic ones to some that sport more advanced features such as automatic password entry, the possibility to import or export session data, connect to multiple hosts at a time, greatly customize the GUI, or even use scripts in order to automate various sequences of commands.
