Frequently Asked Questions
What platforms does SSS currently work on?
SSS currently works on Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.
How often are scanner modules and audit databases updated?
Module updates appear as soon as SSS gets new functions;
Audit databases are updated daily (we recommend either to update them daily manually, or to enable the Database Background Update in Options window)
My PC becomes too slow when I install 20 modules and 100 threads - why does it happen?
When 20 modules and 100 threads are installed, Windows attempts to process 2,000 threads. You need quite a powerful PC to do it.
How can I add my own module to SSS?
develop and add a self-made module you will need VC++,C++ Builder or Delphi (for a detailed description with examples please refer to SDK Help file). If you need to develop and add an audit procedure, use BaseSDK.
Where does the information for audit database come from?
All update information is drawn from: www.securityfocus.org
Why does SSS, though much more advanced than the competing products, cost less?
It happens because we
try to create a product that would be of some real help for system administrators and IT security officers available at an affordable price. At Safety-Lab we do treasure our customers.
What are the differences between the Home Version and the Enterprise Version?
The Home version is able to check localhost (127.0.0.1) only, while the Enterprise version provides virtually unlimited IP-range and includes a round-the-clock technical support.
I bought a license for one copy of SSS. Is it possible for me to install it on 2 (or more) PCs?
No, one license is valid for one PC only. To install the program onto another PC, you will have to purchase another license.
Does Safety-Lab provide any complex network security solutions?
mean time, Safety-Lab strongly advises home users to use its SSS stand-alone product, while for the corporate clients we strongly recommend SSS+SDS+SEWF package. Our plans for the nearest future include enhancing the corporate package with a new firewall.
