SourceAnywhere for VSS is the VSS 6.0 and 2005 internet and cross-platform access solution. It is recommended by Microsoft for access to SourceSafe over TCP/IP. Utilizing client/server architecture with caching, SourceAnywhere for VSS solves VSS main issues: slow performance over Internet, unreliable security in web environment and occasional database corruption.

Featuring delta transfer, compression and Cache Server, SourceAnywhere for VSS is up to 100 times faster than Visual SourceSafe remotely. While the local team continues using VSS, the remote team can use SourceAnywhere for VSS to access the same VSS database from web.

Dynamsoft also built an alternative for VSS. It has two editions: SourceAnywhere Standalone and SourceAnywhere Hosted.
