Monitoring software is often used by employers to monitor employee PC activity. InterGuard is often used by employers to ensure employee productivity, protect sensitive company data, conduct employee investigations and maintain compliance with federal regulations.
Is it legal to monitor employee computers?
In the US, it is legal to monitor employee computers as long as they are company owned, or with written consent if they are owned by the employee. In a few states, employee consent is suggested unless the business purpose, such as an investigation, precludes notice. In the EU, there is recent case law that permits employee PC monitoring with a proper business purpose. InterGuard recommends that all clients provide a written policy of appropriate usage that must be signed or digitally acknowledged by each employee.
What is meant by employee monitoring?
Employee monitoring typically involves the use of surveillance software that is downloaded to the employee PC, Mac, virtual desktop or terminal server. With InterGuard, the software can either be downloaded remotely to all your devices over your network in coordination with your active directory or manually by going to each device and logging in to your online account.
What is employee monitoring and how is it used in business?
Employee monitoring is the act of supervising employee PC activity on company owned devices from a centrally managed console or user interface. InterGuard offers both a cloud based and a self hosted User Interface for clients with stringent security or compliance requirements. The employee monitoring software records all PC activity and then sends this data securely to the central user interface, whether the PC is on or off network.
