SSProtect is hybrid software and a service aimed at protecting data from organized intrusion attempts plaguing corporations. The software does not make use of traditional programming frameworks or common libraries to help avoid 0-day vulnerabilities held by well-funded electronic crime and espionage teams. The software is thus relatively small, and is comprised of an Executable and several DLLs that run on Windows laptop, desktop, workstation, and even server computers to protect files and Outlook Email messages. The total footprint, as of version 9.0, is as follows:
- SSProtect Installer: < 7.3 MB
- SSProtect Installed: < 31.7 MB*
- SSProtect Full Update: < 7.3 MB
- SSProtect FAST UPDATE: ~ 3.0 MB
- :Email Installer: < 4 MB
- :Email Installed: < 10 MB
* Tutorial images hog 26.5 MB of this total. The remaining Program and resources are ~ 5.0 MB.
SSProtect package figures use the larger full-featured installer w/ the filesystem driver. :Email and Updates are dynamically downloaded/ installed (w/ end-user/ Admin guidance). Uninstalling removes all components and provides for flexibility in removing or retaining configuration data.
The :Foundation Client is a 64-bit binary supported on Windows 7 and Windows 10. It is designed for compatibility with host operating systems on bare metal or in virtual environments, independent from virtualization technologies. If you have needs for Windows XP, Windows 8.x, Windows Server, or need a 32-bit build, email Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
:Email Outlook Add-On
:Email is an Outlook Add-In that protects email message content, supported with:
- Microsoft Office 2010
- Microsoft Office 2013
- Microsoft Office 2016
- Microsoft Office 365
Refer to the section, "Product Email Trailers" for important information regarding email message content stripping.
Outlook Multi-Monitor Support, March 2019
Microsoft recently extended Outlook to support multiple monitors. With default settings, the :Email Inbox overlay that shows the actively protected Account renders as an independent, "popout" window. You can disable this element or adjust Outlook User Interface Options to render with maximum compatibility. Refer to your installation's Release Notes for details.
The software uses relatively little system memory and disk space, and thus runs on any proper Windows installation - on both bare metal and in virtual machines.
In-Place Encryption and Anti-Virus Software
All technologies change. Security technologies must respond to the quickest-changing dynamics in the technology landscape. What works today may not work tomorrow. While the Enterprise Security vendors are required to retain ongoing compatibility, consumer products don't always have the same level of success. This is worth taking into consideration if you encounter unusual behavior over time, though to-date it has not yet been an issue (since early 2015 release).
