Anyway of Detecting KeyGhost and Similar Keyboard Capture Hardware Devices?

There is a hardware device called "KeyGhost" that is connected in series with the keyboard and logs the keystrokes as they are typed. I need to know if there is anything that can detect this device. We have a pretty sophisticated and security conscious IT department (I'm not an IT expert). I would like to use this device for an investigation and I do not want to alert the folks in IT.  

Thanks
PL

ADVANTAGES OF KEYGHOST OVER SOFTWARE KEY LOGGERS
KeyGhost key logger is completely undetectable by software scanners (e.g. SpyCop, Who’s Watching Me...etc) and provides you with one of the most powerful stealth surveillance applications offered anywhere.

Thanks for the reply. I'm sure it's invisible to the software scanners that's why I'm interested in it. But are there any other types of detecting devices (such as something on a network or a hardware device in the computer) that an IT department might have available to detect when the logger is connected to the computer. There has to be some way to detect when this keyboard logger is in a system (hopefully I'm wrong).

Thanks,
PL

It's normally used as a removal tool for ad/malware but it should do that trick for you.
