2011 JAN 8 – (VerticalNews.com) – Awareness Technologies, the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On-Demand, announced that it has expanded its software product – InterGuard – to monitor all emails sent to and from BlackBerry devices, enabling employers to prevent sensitive information from leaking accidentally or maliciously and ensure employee productivity.
“There are over 50 million BlackBerry subscribers worldwide, many of whom use their devices for work. InterGuard is the only application that allows enterprises to monitor all employee activity on work-related computers and smartphones remotely through one interface,” said Brad Miller, CEO and Chairman of Awareness Technologies. “We’re currently developing this feature for Android and iPhone devices and expect to release those versions in 2011.”
With this new feature, employers are able to remotely view the exact contents of every email and SMS text message that is sent or received by employees, as well as see who the messages were sent to and from. The software is easy to install and employers are able to see all text messages and emails sent and received on the phone they are monitoring immediately. InterGuard also monitors all activity on desktop and laptop computers including email, instant messaging, social networking activity and website visits.
Employee monitoring software solutions like InterGuard are mission-critical for companies in regulated industries such as financial services, where they need to comply with regulations such as FINRA to monitor and track all employee electronic communications.
“While most compliance-oriented businesses have a handle of monitoring emails on desktop computers, the accelerating use of smartphones requires tools such as InterGuard to remotely monitor all employee communications on mobile devices,” added Miller.
