VDI visibility and monitoring


Ekran System Workstation Client can be installed on any live virtual desktop and included in master images to be preinstalled on any new virtual desktop, allowing for Microsoft Azure WVD monitoring.


Our VDI monitoring software records on-screen activity in virtual desktops while collecting a wide range of context-rich metadata including application names, active window titles, visited URLs, and keystrokes.



Real-time alerts and incident response


To help you respond to incidents in a timely fashion, Ekran System provides a broad set of out-of-the-box alert templates along with the possibility to customize them and build your own rules.


When a user performs an abnormal or security-critical action, your team will be notified and provided with incident context so you can check what’s going on and respond immediately. For the most critical cases, alerts can be augmented with automated incident response actions such as blocking the user, killing the application, and/or displaying a warning message to the user.


Incident replays


When auditing or investigating an incident, you’ll have access to in-session and cross-session search options, fast-forward replays, and various standard and customizable reports to flag potential incidents.
