Support Request:

Dear Sirs,

1, I would like to know, if there could be any issues (especially stability issues) using SierraChart together with
- Kaspersky Internet Security 2018
- and/or VPN (NordVPN)
because both programs are using .NET Framework.
Do you have any experiences?

2, Concerning VPN: I think it is rational to secure the transferred data, or are they already secured from CQG and or from SierraChart? (To make it more difficult for criminals or possible misuse or manipulation of SierraChart and the trading data through unauthorized third parties.)

3, Do you have other security ideas or precautionary measures you could recommend?

Thank you for your time and the information.

Best regards,

P.S.: I wasn´t hacked all the years yet and SierraChart always worked well with AvastFreeAntivirus. But now I have Kaspersky and want to use VPN to not provoke my "luck".

1. This is not within the scope of our support.

You have to do your own testing and see.

2. The connection to CQG is already encrypted.

3. We do not recommend any.

CQG already encrypted is ideal.

Thank you very much
and have a great new year!
