    I want Network Activity Monitoring Software so that I can see the desktop of employee’s working . Kill / Stop their internet sessions, as most of the employee’s surf porn sites and download movies (Even the Lady Employees)
    I am using a imonitor Trial version. The software is good but I need much more and try the best one? Any suggestion? :-

    I would give them a formal warning on a three strike basis to start with. That should get them into line. In fact If I found staff surfing those kind of sites I don’t think I would want them representing my business at all.

    I would also setup a filter that blocks such sites. Internet Explorer has a feature called Content Advisor > that should help somewhat.

    Logging websites your staff visits seems fine to me, but actively viewing where they surf is just creepy.

    Don’t wait for things to get out of hand. (sexual harassment etc.)

    Regards,

    Yep the best practice here is to just block.

    If you try and catch people at it, it just wastes your time and does not build trust within the organisation.

    Get them to sign a email & internet policy and then lock it down.

    We supply Cymphonix internet filtering hardware which provides a high level of control and stops anonymous proxies etc from being used.

    Practices I’ve seen in other offices was to block certain sites, such as Facebook, and have designated times for breaks (5/10min max) on top of normal lunch hours where staff can check their personal emails.

    Staff are bound to do it anyway, so why not allow it at certain times of the day only?

    Having access to their desktops does sound a bit scary despite it being your office, your employees and your computer.
