Keyghost seeks wider channel

KEYGHOST, the Kiwi-made spy device, is boosting its retail presence, with extra South Island retail chains stocking the device and it is gaining a new Australian distributor.

Yet the Christchurch company still seeks a distributor for the North Island as it believes its keystroke logger has the potential to become mainstream.

Earlier this year, electrical goods retailer Powerstore gained exclusive rights to sell the device at its South Island stores, but now it has been joined by Smith City and other locally based retailers.

Keyghost marketing manager Theo Kerdemelidis says sales have gone well, but the company still seeks a North Island distributor, plus other distributors to serve Australia and elsewhere. He promises margins exceeding 25%, plus training and support as required.

Keyghost has been sold online for a few years and direct to top secret government organisations globally. But late last year, a home-user and small-business version, the SX, was launched.

As a piece of hardware, just a few millimetres long, Keyghost is undetectable by software scanners, yet it can store up to 2 million characters, equivalent to two years work by a PC user.

In Australia, Keyghost has just signed its first consumer distributor, Queensland-based PHM. Sunshine Coast Professor Peter Mitchelson has formed a new business to sell the device and other IT products. Retailing for around $200, Mitchelson believes Keyghost will become mainstream.

Keyghost also has a specialist reseller, OzSpy, serving the surveillance market. Director John Vlannis says existing sales have been “not too bad”, adding Keyghost is easy to use as it is a simple “plug and play” device, far more reliable than a rival product that was simply a copy of Keyghost.
