Survey without being seen
Whether you are the father concerned by your children's surfing, a company director worried about Internet misuse within your business or the conscientious manager of a computer park, intelligent agents can help you to keep control of your material. We already know about filters that can provide a preventive barrier to all sorts of excess. But here is an even more secret and often more radical weapon: the surveillance agents.
Do you want to spy on your partner? To know what your children are doing on the computer? Or your employees? Hiring a private detective is no longer necessary. Surveillance agents can be installed rapidly and effectively on any machine. Once installed and configured to meet your needs, these agents - also known by the sweet name of spy bots - will be your cybernetic eyes and ears. Without the user's knowledge, this software records everything that it takes place on the PC: real-time chats, e-mails sent and received, programmes used, documents opened and modified, sites visited, characters typed on the keyboard… Everything! Nothing is left to chance by these little spies that know very well how to be discreet, or even invisible. Most of them can also make screen captures at regular intervals, and run automatically on start up or according to a calendar that you have defined.
Safe? Discreet? In short, infallible? Certainly. But the good news, for some people, is that a warning message can be sent to alert the user that they are under surveillance. For an intelligent surveillance, all in all… ;-)

This is especially important in a field where, as they say, time is money.

In addition, Audiogalaxy has agreed to pay the music publishers and recording industry an undetermined amount of money based on Audiogalaxy's assets and interest in resolving the case quickly, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

> WebMail Spy
WebMail Spy is a powerful, discrete monitoring application which will record and store all web-based e-mail messages. WebMail Spy allows you monitor web based e-mail from services such as HotMail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL WebMail, and many more!
Imagine a surveillance camera pointed directly at your computer monitor, filming away everything that is done on the PC. That is the idea behind Spector. It works by taking a snapshot of whatever is on the computer screen and saves it away in a hidden location on your computer's hard drive.
Suppose your computer crashes or the power goes out while you are working on an important document and you lose all your work. If you have KeyKey running on your computer, you never lose your work. Everything you type is stored in a file you can access anytime.
eBlaster delivers detailed activity reports, including all web sites visited, all applications run, all keystrokes typed, even a log of chat conversations right to your e-mail address, as frequently as every 30 minutes. As a parent, you no longer have to wait until you get home from work to find out what your children have been doing on the Internet.
