Shared files: real or mirage?

Author: JT Smith

Wired: "What you see on your computer screen is the document or Web page you opened, right? Wrong.

In an attempt to protect sensitive information from would-be pilferers, Alchemedia's Mirage 3.0 plays tricks on users -- so what you see is not always what
you get.

What happens if you want to share confidential information with employees, business partners or vendors -- but you don't want them to copy, save on disk,
print, forward or otherwise hold onto the data?

Until now, you had only one choice: to encrypt the document. But Mirage 3.0, the newest application from Alchemedia, offers users another option."
