[prMac.com] Miami, Florida - Tao Effect, in partnership with cocoaWithChurros, has announced the immediate availability of Espionage 3.0, the first and only folder encryption utility on the Mac App Store. Espionage allows users to create encrypted versions of folders, protected by a password. Espionage 3 has been rewritten and resdesigned from the ground up, and introduces enhanced security measures, including support for plausible deniability, giving users a means of protection in case they are forced to give up their password.
During its launch week the app will be on sale for $9.99, half its usual selling price of $19.99.
Tao Effect is also announcing a "quasi-permanent" price drop on the previous version of its software, Espionage 2, which is now just $9.99 (previously $34.95).
Significant New Features:
* Completely rewritten from the ground up and brand new user interface
* Greatly enhanced security through the use of AES-256 encryption and Scrypt, a key-derivation function that is 2^8 times more expensive to attack than the industry standard PBKDF2
* Protects the user if they are forced to give up their password through a feature called Folder Sets, by having multiple master passwords, each protecting a unique set of folders
* Works seamlessly with existing backup software like Time Machine
* Supports Dropbox for synching
* Tools to manage diskimage/folder size/capacity
* Mac OS X Version 10.7 Lion
* 1.7 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Espionage 3.0 comes with a 14-day free no-restrictions trial via its website, and can be purchased for $9.99 (USD) during the first week it's released, and $19.99 thereafter.
