Employee computer monitoring is tracking workers’ activity inside an organization’s IT perimeter with dedicated software for computer monitoring. This practice helps businesses monitor employees’ performance, optimize workflows, protect sensitive data, and address security concerns.

Employee monitoring solutions can help any organization improve security and productivity. They are especially critical for businesses that handle sensitive data or have remote teams. Deploying employee tracking tools is also essential for organizations that need to ensure compliance in heavily regulated industries like finance, government, insurance, and healthcare

Some industry regulations and data protection laws require organizations to implement monitoring measures. By monitoring employee computer activity, organizations can ensure that employees handle sensitive information properly and follow all the procedures required to achieve compliance with regulatory requirements like GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI DSS. An effective user activity monitoring solution can help you avoid the legal and financial risks associated with non-compliance.

Employee desktop monitoring software enhances data security by providing visibility into user activity, thus allowing you to detect security threats swiftly and respond immediately. By continuously monitoring user activity, you can spot suspicious behavioral patterns, identify potential security risks, and protect sensitive data from exfiltration.

Effective employee monitoring solutions like Ekran System can track various types of activities. The platform records on-screen activity coupled with useful metadata such as:
-executed commands
-typed keystrokes and clipboard data
-opened files and folders
-visited websites
-opened applications
-connected USB devices.
This comprehensive monitoring allows you to gain clear insights into employee activity and detect suspicious or unauthorized actions.

Key features to look for in employee computer monitoring software include continuous and uninterrupted monitoring capabilities, activity logging functionality, on-screen activity recording, and alerts on suspicious activities. Ideally, your software to monitor employees also should be compatible with your existing IT systems, have a user-friendly interface, and be scalable so it can grow with your business.

Ekran System offers a range of capabilities to monitor user activity, including:
-Continuous monitoring
-Session recording
-User activity logging
-User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) module
-Rule-based alerts and incident response
-User productivity dashboards
-Detailed reports, and other useful features.

Ekran System is robust software that helps to monitor employee computer activity in both real time and in records as well as track employees’ active and idle time. You can use Ekran System to monitor the activity of both in-house and remote employees.

Ekran System captures all keystrokes and even clipboard content. They’re hidden in the session recordings so security specialists can’t see sensitive data such as passwords in plain text. At the same time, all keystroke logs are searchable. Our Linux clients capture entered exec and sudo commands with all their parameters as well as the contents of all started scripts.

Yes. Ekran System’s flexible architecture allows for integration with existing IT infrastructure, including various SIEM and ticketing systems.

The out-of-the-box version of Ekran System supports both on-premises and SaaS deployment.

Ekran System applies highly optimized formats to store session recordings and metadata. The platform is also optimized in terms of bandwidth use. You can see actual performance numbers and basic hardware requirements for typical deployments in our technical documentation.

Ekran System isn’t spyware, so it doesn’t support hiding. Although Ekran System agents are visible, we deliver the best client protection mechanisms on the market, making our software unstoppable even for privileged users.

Yes, Ekran System’s versatility makes it suitable for organizations of all sizes, from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises. The platform is scalable and customizable, allowing you to deploy and configure it according to your specific requirements. 

The platform tracks user actions in real time, generating detailed audit trails and reports on employee activity. When employees know that their activity is being tracked and documented, they are more likely to adhere to security policies and maintain good productivity levels. They are also typically more focused on their job duties, resulting in fewer distractions or human errors.

Ekran System protects monitored data with AES 256 encryption. The platform also offers monitored data anonymization, substitute user logins, and device alias names. Even if a breach occurs, anonymized data is less likely to be exploited for malicious purposes since it doesn’t contain personally identifiable information. Thus, you can protect your employees’ privacy and minimize the security risks associated with data breaches or unauthorized access. 

Tracking employee productivity can help you optimize workflow and allocate resources efficiently. By leveraging employee productivity tracking software, you can identify gaps for improvement to provide targeted support and training to your team. 

Ekran System employee productivity monitoring software provides user-friendly dashboards on: 
-Total active vs. idle time
-Top applications used 
-Top websites used 
-User productivity.

Web monitoring software can provide insights into productivity and potential security risks. Employee monitoring software like Ekran System delivers dashboards for website usage to ensure your employees stay focused on work-related tasks and avoid accessing potentially malicious websites. Ekran System also offers dashboards for application use, allowing you to make sure that your employees follow your organization’s information security policies

Pros: Enhanced productivity, security, and compliance. 
Workplace monitoring solutions can help you identify areas for improvement in your workflow. In addition, monitoring solutions like Ekran System enhance data security by detecting and preventing insider threats. 
Cons: Employee work tracking software can erode trust among the executive board and staff, leading to overall dissatisfaction and decreased morale. There are also privacy concerns, so it’s critical to ensure that any data collected during monitoring is handled in accordance with relevant data protection laws and regulations. 
For example, organizations that monitor and handle the personal data of EU residents need to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Importantly, Ekran System protects user privacy thanks to its monitored data anonymization feature and GDPR-compliant keylogging option. By default, the platform doesn’t show monitored keystrokes to security officers. 

You should clearly communicate the reasons for implementing employee monitoring software and tell how it benefits both the organization and employees. Be transparent about why you need to monitor employee computers, which activities will be monitored, and how the data will be used.
Convey to your employees that you respect their privacy rights and will be tracking only relevant activity.
