  • TCP 55555

  • TCP 55559

What are the most common false positives for Quasar?

There are several situations where New Zealand data triggers a false positive. This includes some back accounts from:

  • Kiwibank
  • HSBC

Both of these will show as a match for Diners Club International. FlyBuys numbers are automatically filtered out as they are a known false positive.

Is it possible to scan systems that aren\’t supported, such as older versions of Windows?

Our list of supported systems can be found here.

If you have a system that is not supported, the easiest way to scan these systems is to copy the files / folders from the unsupported system to a supported one.

Contact us if you have a question about whether other systems may be supported.

How much does Quasar cost?

Pricing is based on the number of licenses you require, the size of your environment, and how the system is deployed. Contact us for more detail.

How long is a Quasar licence valid for?

Quasar licences are typically valid for one (1) year from the date of issue.

How long does it take to scan \”X\”?

The most common question we get is “How long does it take to scan [insert the thing you want to scan here]?”

The answer is always: \”it depends…\”

It is possible to configure the scans to complete quickly, but this will affect the depth and breadth of the scan. Or you can configure a scan to go wide and deep resulting in the scan taking much longer. It will also depend on the amount of computing resources devoted to scanning. We typically recommend that you work with one of our Quasar analysts to understand how to breach scans into pieces to allow them to get a balance between depth and speed.
