How much does SecurITree cost?

Please contact Amenaza (1-888-949-9797 or +01 403-263-7737) for specific pricing information. There are a wide variety of licensing options for SecurITree. Non-expiring licenses include one year of technical support and a year's subscription to software updates. Additional annual maintenance subscriptions are available for 20% of the product's current price. We also sell a "consulting license". This gives a consulting organization the right to use SecurITree for up to three months at a particular, named client's site. At the end of the three months if they sell a copy of SecurITree to the client, we will refund their consulting license fee.

Some of the license options are shown here. Please contact Amenaza for further details.

What if international characters are not displaying correctly in SecurITree?

Update your version of Oracle's Java 2 Runtime Environment to version 1.7.0. The latest versions of the JRE can be downloaded directly from Oracle.

Why am I getting Out of Memory messages when Task Manager says lots of memory is available?

A memory error can occur while working on very large attack trees in SecurITree or while performing memory intensive analytic operations. SecurITree is a Java-based application that executes within the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). By default, the JRE limits the amount of a PC's memory available to Java applications. This limit can be easily increased. As a general rule, the limit should be somewhat less than the amount of physical memory in the computer.

To increase the amount of memory available to SecurITree on a Windows PC:

  • Locate the file SecurITree.ini located in the directory where SecurITree was installed (typically C:\Program Files\Amenaza\SecurITree).
  • Make a backup copy of this file.
  • Edit SecurITree.ini
    • Find the parameter Virtual Machine Parameters=-Xms256 -Xmx1024m (these values may be different than shown here)
    • Increase the -Xmx value to the desired value, e.g., -Xmx1536m (for 1536 MB)
    • Do not exceed the amount of memory available on your computer or SecurITree will not execute.
