See this post if you are interested in licensing iSpy.
iSpy is the magic behind Espionage’s amazing capabilities.
Despite its sinister sounding name, iSpy has absolutely nothing to do with “spyware” whatsoever. iSpy gets its name from its ability to spy on events in the filesystem.
What does that mean?
Well, let’s look at how Espionage uses iSpy. Espionage asks iSpy to send it events whenever any of the folders that it’s monitoring are accessed. So when a user double-clicks on a folder under Espionage’s protection, iSpy sends Espionage an event. As far as I’m aware, it is currently the only system on the Mac OS X platform that has this capability.
But the magic doesn’t stop there. iSpy can also moderate file operations. This is how Espionage’s non-encrypted protection works.
P.S. Tao Effect (and you can consider this a company philosophy) will never include any form of spyware in any of its applications.
