SoftActivity Monitor Overview. User monitoring for businesses

Watch now! 5-minute product overview

Nobody would ever need computer monitoring software if everyone was hard-working and trustworthy, like you. Sadly, your people are out of control. They’re on Facebook. Looking for designer shoes on eBay. Watching funny cat videos. Conquering a Massive Multiplayer kingdom. Even worse, confidential information is leaking outside your network – but who did it? You don’t have time to babysit them at their computers – and spending valuable IT time investigating these trouble-makers is prohibitive. You’ve got a business to run!
