Agencies Select SpectorSoft To Help Parents Protect Kids
Police, Sheriffs Arm Communities with Spector in Battle Against Dangers of the Internet
VERO BEACH, FL - April 27, 2009 - SpectorSoft Corporation, the worldwide leader in Internet Monitoring and Surveillance Software, announced police departments and sheriff's offices across the country continue to recommend, purchase, and distribute Spectorsoft monitoring technology to help parents protect kids from the dangers of the Internet.
Both the Seminole County Sheriff's Office in Sanford, FL, and the Albuquerque Police Department in Albuquerque, NM have recently negotiated significant special purchase agreements with SpectorSoft for its award-winning monitoring software. SpectorSoft monitoring software products are considered by many experts to be the software tools of choice in the battle parents face when it comes to the safety of their children when facing the ‘dark side' of the Internet.
"SpectorSoft has an impressive and long-standing record of association with law enforcement experts at many levels," said SpectorSoft President C. Douglas Fowler. "Recent activity from these quarters represents an ongoing testimony to our commitment to producing a great monitoring product that is easy for parents to implement effectively, yet robust enough for sophisticated users."
Spector works by taking snapshots of whatever is on the computer screen and saving the snapshots to a hidden location on the computer's hard drive. Spector can automatically take a picture of the computer screen as frequently as once per second or snapshots can be triggered by user activity. Additionally, Spector records every web site visited and features a world-class keystroke recorder that captures every key users type on the computer keyboard, including passwords.
The Seminole County Sheriff's Office provides a copy of Spector 4.0 monitoring software to attendees of its "Dangers of the Internet" program, presented to parents, guardians, and educators in cooperation with Florida's Seminole County Public Schools.
"Through the Internet, crimes against children reach beyond the boundaries of Seminole County, FL, and we recognize the need to give parents and guardians the necessary tools to protect their children," said Sergeant Dan Purcell of the Seminole County Sheriff's Office. "We also recognize that law enforcement services alone will not prevent or detect crime; it takes a solid partnership with parents to prevent sexual predators from harming our children. Spector 4.0 is an important part of that partnership."
Sergeant Paul Garcia of the Albuquerque, NM Police Department said Spector 4.0 is a key component of its community outreach program, which is designed to inform and educate concerned parents about the growing incidence of pedophiles approaching children through various PC and Internet activities including social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook as well as chats, instant messages, and emails.
"Our Internet safety presentation for parents and children has several tools that are important for parents, and Internet monitoring software is one of the tools," said Garcia. "In my opinion Spector is an outstanding product for parents, and is a great tool to help protect children from the dangers they face while online. Along with our IT team, I tested several products, and our first choice is Spector."
Retail pricing for a single license of Spector 4.0 is $69.95.
