I am doing more network device management at work, (mainly cisco and juniper) and need tools to telnet/ssh and SCP to manage the devices. I am comfortable with the gnome terminal, but wouldn't mind having a tool that makes it easy to "bookmark" hosts, and even drag and drop scp copying would be helpful. I use Putty at the moment in windows, (and WinSCP for copying files) but was wondering if there was a better, or more integrated cross platform tool. (work machines have windows 7)
PuTTY really is the de facto cross-platform telnet/SSH application. I am having trouble identifying exactly what you're looking for, but of the following criteria:
PuTTY, as far as I am aware, is the only piece of software that satisfies all constraints. WinSCP is Windows-only and all other clients with which I am familiar are either commercially licensed or text-based. FileZilla may support SSH, I have not tested this personally but potentially it could be a more robust file manager than PuTTY or WinSCP.
Also, for what it's worth, GNOME/Nautilus supports browsing of SSH shares from "Places > Connect to Server..." It supports bookmarks and (obviously) drag and drop.

i use gftp as my ftp client. I havent tried it personally but i think there is a way to make gftp work with scp /ssh.
have a look here.
Or you can use secpanel.
Though none better than putty for ssh/telnet which incidentally is Cross Platform
