Employee and Computer Monitoring

I have clients that inquire about computer/employee monitoring software for servers or computers on their network, or offsite laptops.  Most of the inquiries are driven by productivity concerns or security requirements.

The software I typically recommend for clients who want to be able to see the screen activity is SpectorSoft software, specifically SpectorPro.

NOTE: SpectorPro is being discontinued and it is anticipated that in late August 2015, SpectorSoft will release Workplace Monitor as SpectorPro’s replacement.

Another common question asked by client is whether computer/employee monitoring is legal; as per SpectorSoft, it is, but as always it is best to check with legal council for your specific State.
