See the fiasco with Koingo’s Data Guardian to understand why no one in their right mind would recommend this company's software.

What fiasco? I've been using Data Guardian for years with no problems. Developer is very responsive to comments, problems, and suggestions.

Marvelous little helper. Works as advertised. Rock stable and reliable.

Only thing missing is iSight motion detection as an event monitor in order to use the Mac as a surveillance unit.

Well I was interested in that and the "incorrect password attempts" event, but you have to actually install the program (not mentioned anywhere) to find out this event has been removed with OS X 10.6 !

Well at least there's a trial period, but the developer should be more transparent and provide upfront a matrix of what is available on what OS X version.

Does it remember even the typed passwords?

No, the Mac OS does not permit this. Plus, this sounds like a rather large security violation if it could.

This could be a great program to help get a stolen Mac back; however, I can't figure out how to get it to email anything-- keep getting "Send Mail error: 22."

This is actually a pretty cool app. Now if we could get a little fat guy to pop up on the screen and wave his finger and say "uh, uh, uh." (Reference first Jurassic Park movie.) It says in the description that you can start a "simulated self destruct." I couldn't find that. You can do a real self destruct, but simulated? I think it would be pretty cool to see a simulated one. Maybe one that shows a lot of stuff melting down or what-have-you like on TV, then blacken the screen and lock it out. Scare the heck out of your kids/spouse!

Some things I would change is ability to keep taking pictures every x seconds until you disable the monitor. Also, once you turn off a monitor - say you type in a correct password in the destruct sequence, you have an option of disabling the monitor until you turn it on again. So if you have the monitor looking for a mouse movement, you don't have it going off while you are trying to turn the monitor off.

A great 1.0 app!

Looks interesting, and promising....one thing I cannot locate (if it is an option) is where I want screenshots or pictures taken to be stored.....would be a very nice feature if not already there. Still haven't found the pics.......off to test some more....

Digital Sentry monitors your system for specific events, and then can perform a vast array of unique actions in response. Use it to automatically cleanse Internet history when closing a browser, automate redundant computer tasks, perform covert surveillance, or even protect your sensitive data during unauthorized access or theft!

Watch for such system events as waking from sleep, program launches, closes, or switches, file modifications, incorrect password attempts, mouse and keyboard input, and many more. Then, perform any number of tasks like sending an e-mail, shutting down the computer, starting a simulated self-destruct, pinging a Web URL, taking a Web cam shot, taking a screenshot, playing a multimedia file, speaking some text, executing a shell script... the list goes on!

Curious who's been using your computer while you make a quick trip out of the room? Turn on the 'incorrect password' attempt monitor, and have Digital Sentry take a picture of them with a Web cam, e-mail it to you, and then sending you a notification by text message to your cell phone! Ideal for catching a thief in the event your laptop has been stolen.

Alternatively, use Digital Sentry to organize your life by performing a task such as speaking a line of text on an interval to remind you to get up from the computer and stretch, or to perform a system backup. In the case of a backup, then even get Digital Sentry to do it for you by executing a shell script.

The possible uses for Digital Sentry are countless. Download the free 15-day trial from our Web site, and put it to work for you!
