NetCare System Services Middle East (NCSME) has introduced Spectorsoft’s Spector Pro software into the Middle East, giving parents and companies a means of monitoring the on and offline activities of employees or family members. NetCare claims the software can help put an end to wasted staff hours spent playing solitaire and composing personal e-mails, thanks to its being able to highlight any improper or suspicious usage. "Spector Pro provides peace of mind for anyone concerned by internet misuse, whether by employees or family members," said Bala Balakrishnan, general manager, CSME. "Comprehensive screening across applications combined with intelligent and instant notification makes Spector Pro the most powerful monitoring and surveillance software available." Spector Pro is designed to be used with network PCs and is capable of recording all data traffic relating to the machines being monitored. Both sent and received e-mails can be copied and sent to systems administrators, who can also choose to be notified of which websites users visit, plus what chat conversations they indulge in and which software programs they use. Spector Pro provides full coverage of popular web-based e-mail and chat services such as Yahoo and MSN’s Hotmail and Messenger, which NetCare says in the past have been difficult to monitor. Spector Pro even provides a screenshot facility and keystroke capturing, and logs keywords nominated by customers. Activity summaries are provided on an application-by-application basis, and include a date and time stamp for each action logged. If all the solution’s features are enabled, NetCare claims it a full picture of every minute spent at the PC can be put together automatically. "Spector Pro simply provides IT managers with the information they need to know if valuable staff and equipment resources are being used correctly," explained Mr Balakrishnan. "Equally, the solution can be used to protect recreational users – especially children – from having their privacy compromised by inappropriate material." In addition to distributing Spector Pro, NCSME is also offering Middle East users the chance to buy Spectorsoft’s eBlaster remote monitoring application, which provides the same network monitoring and reporting services as Spector Pro and two additional enhancements, namely that information can be collected and sent in easy-to-review activity reports and a remote surveillance capability is also featured for tracking mobile and remote users’ activities too.

This is a hacking tool turned into spyware to make money with a very evil intent. It should be banned here as it is in many decent laws in several countries.
