Computer Monitoring Report Categories
BrowseReporter provides 3 types of report categories to track your users
Internet Activities Reports
Monitoring employee internet activity mitigates the temptation employees have to abuse the internet during work hours, discourages bad actors from engaging in harmful activities on the web, and provides your company with the insights it needs to identify inappropriate or unsafe computer usage behavior in the workplace.
Actively disengaged employees cost American businesses more than $500 billion per year in lost productivity. Internet monitoring discourages employees from wasting time and provides managers with a data-informed baseline for addressing misuse of resources in the workplace.
Insider ThreatsCareless or malicious employees can introduce malware into the company network by visiting unsafe websites and downloading harmful programs. Internet monitoring and internet filtering work together to mitigate cybersecurity threats caused by unsafe internet use.
Fight HostilityTechnology in the workplace can be inappropriately used to harass employees, leading to a hostile work environment. Internet monitoring provides HR with the digital evidence they need to respond to unwanted behaviors in the workplace.

Bandwidth Usage Monitoring Reports
Streaming a 4K Ultra HD Netflix video consumes 7GB of data per hour. Employees that misuse the internet in their workplace aren’t only harming their own productivity, they also strain the available bandwidth and make network speeds slower for their coworkers.
Slow internet speeds caused by bandwidth abuse reduce the effectiveness of your workforce through dropped VoIP/video conferencing connections, longer wait times to access critical resources, and internet connection loss from excessive overload on network hardware.
Bandwidth consumption history reports allow you to strategically plan investments in upgrades to networking hardware. With bandwidth consumption insights you have the data you need to determine if upgrades are truly necessary.
Detect bandwidth spikes that are caused by dangerous P2P file sharing programs, torrenting websites, and malware that turns endpoint devices into botnets or rigs for unauthorized cryptocurrency mining (‘cryptojacking’).
Computer Applications Usage Reports
BrowseReporter isn’t just a powerful internet usage monitor, it can also monitor computer applications. Application monitoring provides insights into the time that employees actively spend using software in the workplace, allowing you to understand the most commonly used applications for each user, device, and department in your organization.
Fight Shadow IT
Unauthorized computer programs aren’t being managed by the IT department, increasing the potential for a costly data breach caused by illicit data exfiltration and insecure programs.
The average cost of unused computer software (‘shelfware’) is $259 per desktop. By monitoring application usage you can clearly see the programs that are actually used in your company and which ones can be decommissioned.
Floating licenses offer much-needed flexibility and affordability, but they can lead to employees not having access to the software they need when application usage spikes. Monitor application usage to detect users that are launching programs they don’t need to use or provide evidence that more licenses need to be purchased.
