Programs that Log User ActivitiesLocked
Just real quick here… My company is trying to do this whole big philosophy change type thing. Part this is they are cracking down on the low-end producers of each department, the “trouble-makers”, the gossip hounds, etc.
Well I think some of this is good stuff and its about time to be honest.
Anyway, I am getting a flood of requests now from department directors and managers to monitor the email and web activities of specific users and/or at specific time periods. With this data, in some cases , it will decide the continued employment for some employees.
The trick — it has to be stealth (invisible to the user being monitored) and it has to be relatively cheap. Finally, if I had to pick between what is more important to monitor web or email I’d say email is the priority, but web is something I’d like to also watch.
What solutions are out there for this stuff that doesn’t cost a small fortune?
PS. Right now we are using a basic filter on our firewall and we are combining this with security audit logs from our domain controllers.
