Monitor Workplace Computers Online for Free
When the boss is away, workers will play. So goes the mantra as employers balance security, morale and productivity when managing a business. For many businesses, it is either difficult or just outright impossible to keep an eye on how each computer is being used at any given time. The solution is employee monitoring software which will keep logs on how each company computer is being used while providing live access to each of the workers’ screens as they work throughout the day.
Employee monitoring software comes in many shapes and sizes. There are employee monitoring programs which may only pay attention to a small aspect about how the company computer is being used and there are those which provide great detail about employee computer use to the employer while providing employers with the ability to block certain websites and applications to make sure that only the appropriate activities are taking place at work.
Employee monitoring software is important for any business. In addition to lost productivity due to fooling around, there are security and liability issues for businesses large and small which should include employee monitoring software as part of the plan for integrating security measures with workplace computers.
Workers can be malicious, juvenile or often uninformed when it comes to conducting themselves professionally on a workplace computer. These actions can be costly to a company in the event that a computer is infected with a virus or someone is unhappy with how they are being treated. Employers must evaluate the costs involved when implementing security measures, and often times employee monitoring software makes it to the bottom of the priority list behind anti-virus protection and firewall infrastructure.
With this in mind, Net Orbit makes it easy for any business large or small to integrate employee monitoring software with their security programs by allowing businesses to use Net Orbit for free on up to three company computers. Small businesses do not need a large budget to have the same monitoring and restriction protections as the big leaguers. Even medium to large sized businesses should not need to devote large sums of money just to be able to see what is going on in their company. Net Orbit is the reliable and affordable solution for companies to monitor, restrict and control their company computers.
