Remotely warns users of dangerous activity
SpectorSoft has launched a major update to its remote-monitoring software, eBlaster Mac 2010. The software is designed to record and monitor all computer activity, such as usage by children or employees, while providing both warnings and reports that help keep parents or employers up-to-date on what apps and websites users go to. The latest version adds new blocking features for web sites and chat programs, as well as advanced keyword alerts that remotely warn parents of potentially dangerous activity.
Additional changes included support for Snow Leopard and the latest versions of instant messaging or mail services such as Gmail and Yahoo mail. The update also records information from Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird and Microsoft Entourage, instantly copying all e-mails sent or received by the user.
eBlaster Mac 2010 includes a copy of the support program Ultimate Care, which provides users with one free year of upgrades. The app is currently priced at $100 for new users and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later in order to work.
