Espionage 2.0 adds new features, fixes, speed

Espionage 2.0 shipping

Tao Effect has launched Espionage 2.0, providing five new features and a variety of fixes for the folder encryption software. Version 2.0 introduces application associations, which removes the previous requirement of unlocking a folder before using it with a third-party app; the upgraded Espionage simply requires a password to open a folder, which is locked automatically once a program has been shut down. Templates for 18 different applications are included, allowing users to associate a password with each one.

Also new is built-in backup functionality, and support for sparsebundles, which speeds the backup of encrypted folders. Support for a different keychain separate from the system one allows the use of a master password, adding another layer of security.

Fixes have meanwhile been made to issues with multiple user accounts, as well as problems with user notifications and folder restore failures. Encryption speeds have been improved as a whole, up to 300 percent for small folders, and the software now uses a rebuilt installer. Espionage 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, and costs $25.
