How does your company handle employee monitoring?

JdBoor
The company I work for is going to revamp our monitoring. Just wondering what methos and products everyone uses? Do you take screenshots, log any keystrokes, or just take a history of what they do? How long do you save the records for? Thanks everyone.

      Take a history of activities and record chatting and email. I think it is a keylogger to record any keystrokes (http://www.anykeylogger.com/how-to-record-keystrokes.html).

      I installed this product a couple of years ago for a client for employee monitoring. It does all of the above things you mentioned within a AD domain environment. You can replay the activities on any individual that basically allows you to literally view all activity as if you were there at that moment. Little overhead on the workstation. Only thing you would need to consider is the length of time to keep this data. This will be impacted by the size of network you would be monitoring. At that time the product could be installed via login script, group policy, email link or executable. I hope this helps.

      This varies by industry and management's expectations, also what do your lawyers say about this, do you have to meet any compliance/audit specifications?...

      For example, to get just the Internet sites people are going to there, is DNS Redirector on the lower-cost end of the spectrum.

      You could setup Email archiving, either in-house (GFI MailArchiver) or in the cloud (Postini) to capture all emails sent/received even if the end-user deletes something.

      On the higher end, or the "I want to see absolutely everything" done any screen, any device, anytime, there is Spector 360

      It only monitors the activities without logging keystrokes or screenshots. It is pretty efficient because it tells the exact amount of time spent on every application or web site.
