According to this post, adding the following code into .vimrc works for me:

if &term =~ "xterm"
    " SecureCRT versions prior to 6.1.x do not support 4-digit DECSET
    "     let &t_ti = "\<Esc>[?1049h"
    "     let &t_te = "\<Esc>[?1049l"
    " Use 2-digit DECSET instead
    let &t_ti = "\<Esc>[?47h"
    let &t_te = "\<Esc>[?47l"

For more information regarding the two variables ti and te, you can refer to :help xterm-screens in Vim
