SoftActivity™ TS Monitor Software Overview: Monitoring Terminal Server Users


You’re a responsible boss running a lean organization. You use a Terminal Server to cut IT costs. Your people log in remotely so they can work from anytime, anywhere.

But are you really saving money – or are you paying your people not to work? What about insider security threats? You know there are problem-employees – but manually investigating them and sifting through the data is not working!

Stop reacting. Be proactive. Get the proven server monitoring solution used by small businesses, large international corporations, educational, non-profit and government organizations around the world.

Monitor Employees or Students Remotely, Invisibly, Effectively

Increase productivity. Prevent insider IP theft. Run SoftActivity TS Monitor invisibly, without slowing down the server. When people know they’re being watched (although, by default it is invisible to users), they behave better.

SoftActivity TS Monitor lets you:

  • Monitor employees from anywhere on your Terminal Server. They won’t even know you’re there. Audit Windows Remote Desktop sessions, Citrix XenApp applications and desktops.
  • Log websites they visit. Sure, they need to go off your company site to do their work. They don’t need to be on social media or shopping sites on work time, though. Show HR the report and take action.
  • Record e-mails, IM chats and other workplace communications. If they’re saying the wrong thing to the wrong people, you take action right now.
  • Generate reports that show user activity. Get the proof you need to take action.
  • And much more!

Get total control over your corporate network. Install SoftActivity™ TS Monitor on your Windows Terminal Server or Citrix servers.
