Activity Monitor 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!

Get the Computer Monitoring Software that Works

Monitor every PC on your Local Area Network. Whether you’re monitoring company workstations or university campus network users, catch them in the act. Show them the proof. Take action.

Activity Monitor lets you:

  • Monitor Without Them Knowing. View their computers in real time – from your own PC. Activity Monitor works invisibly, without slowing down their PCs.
  • Track websites visited. Tom from accounting was on Facebook for 3 hours a day, every day this week? Let him explain that to HR.
  • Record their e-mails. End workplace harassment, IP theft and more.
  • Record keystrokes in work apps, emails, websites and IM chats in real time. See what’s happening as it’s happening.
  • View multiple computers at the same time in your network. See disasters coming and prevent them from happening.
  • Generate reports and schedule screen captures. Then show the bad guys the evidence. Even better, show everyone.
  • And much more!
