- Initial release
New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada – June 2, 2009 – Deep Software Inc. today announced the release of SoftActivity TS Monitor, a comprehensive solution that enables administrators to monitor user activity in Windows Terminal Server sessions.
The threat of attack from insiders is both real and substantial. According to a study conducted by the United States Secret Service and CERT, 32% of all electronic crimes in which the perpetrator could be identified were committed by insiders. Additionally, companies must contend with an increasing volume of legislation which requires that they take action to protect the data that their networks hold against unauthorized disclosure. Preventing outsiders from accessing that data is relatively straightforward, but preventing insiders from accessing and disclosing it can be far from straightforward.
“While it is reasonably easy for a company to secure its network against external threats, securing it against internal threats can be much more challenging,” said Yuri Martsinovsky, CEO of Deep Software. “Security is only as strong as the weakest link and, in many cases, the weakest link is the lack of control which companies have over the actions of their employees. While firewalls and intrusion prevention and detection systems can stop outsiders accessing your data, they cannot stop insiders passing your data to outsiders.”
SoftActivity TS Monitor has an extensive set of logging and report options that help companies mitigate insider threats:
TS Monitor logs every action performed by local and remote users during Terminal Server sessions. The product records
- Screenshots of user actions
- Used applications
- Sent and received email
- Web browsing history
- Both sides of IM conversations
- And more
TS Monitor enables administrators and managers to:
- View detailed reports on the server usage
- See when users logged on and log off the server
- View a list of the most used applications and visited websites
- See exactly what was typed in any application
- Replay a slideshow of user actions
TS Monitor compliments Deep Software’s Activity Monitor, a solution that enables managers and administrators to monitor employee workstations on a LAN. With TS Monitor, companies can now also record their Terminal Server’s usage. SoftActivity TS Monitor supports Windows Server 2003, 2008 and Citrix.
Pricing and Availability
TS Monitor is available now. Pricing is dependent on number of monitored users and decreases with volume – a 10 user license costs $449.90. Licenses include 1 year of updates and unlimited technical support.
