3 August 2016

What you should know about employee monitoring?

Every kind of work that demands the usage of a computer may result in inappropriate usage of IT equipment. The end-users – given the opportunity of having a device that apart from working may be used for fun – might be tempted to spend their time more leisurely than they are expected. Yet, nowadays technology provide us with solutions which allow us to monitor computer usage within a company’s server range.

Ethical computer monitoring in work demands to implement a system that is designed in accordance with current law. In European Union, the regulations state that this kind of surveillance cannot be performed in a continuous manner. Such software will be treated as spyware, as it violates an employee’s right to privacy. Because of that, it is worth of purchasing a program which is designed basing on simple, yet tested rules.

What kind of content can be monitored?

Computers that employees work on are the property of the company – because of that, its owner has a right to access the content of computer, and the worker is obliged to show it. Though this situation is clear, it gets more complicated when Internet monitoring and control is taken into consideration.

In case of Internet surveillance, an employer cannot read the content of a website. However, with the use of a system designed to Internet monitoring, gather the information concerning what kind of websites are most frequently visited.

Worktime surveillance will help with depicting how the worker spent his time during the course of work and assess the usage of Internet resources during duty hours.

Internet monitoring is only a part of computer surveillance, though. Printer or external memory drive monitoring, as well as worktime surveillance create a full-fledged picture of how your equipment is used – and is it safe enough to establish an appropriate level of security.

How to obtain a complex Monitoring within your network?

statlook Monitoring enables computer activity monitoring by:

1. Internet Monitoring – this key function enhances workers’ performance while ensuring their right to privacy. The employer may control the usage of company’s network by:

* A list of visited website

* A register of time spent on a particular website

* Surveillance of websites’ headlines

* Surveillance of time spent on certain activities.

The pages may be blocked or unblocked both globally – for the whole company – and locally – for each user. This functionality enables an administrator to limit – or fully restrict – an access to undesirable or dangerous content.

2. Printer monitoring – this issue is especially important if you want to know if the usage of your resources remains appropriate. Unfortunately it happens that some workers use company’s devices for private purposes. Because of that, data concerning printed files – including date and hour of performing the operation, the name of the file, the number of pages and copies, colour and the quality of the printout – are so important to have.

3. Data concerning connected external memory devices – this function protects the network from uncontrolled flow of confidential data. Managing the rights to access the USB memory drives (e.g. blocking, read-only and saving) and saving the activities performed on such devices will grant you a full control on what happens with your data.

4. Detailed analysis of work– with the data concerning breaks of work course, the scope of application usage and logging and session history as an employer you have a full insight on how your subordinates’ workday looks like. This kind of information will help you to assess the productivity of your workers and check if your company’s devices are used appropriately.
