    CurrentWare InterGuard Alternative FAQ

    Are There Any Limits to the Free Trial?

    The free trial is fully functional. You can deploy CurrentWare’s software for up to 14 days, which is perfect for testing the solution out with a small team.

    If you need more time to properly evaluate CurrentWare’s employee monitoring software in your organization, reach out to our team. You can call us, email us, or use our live chat.

    Can CurrentWare Monitor and Control Remote Workers and Off-Network Devices?

    Yes. The CurrentWare Client agent that is installed on the employee’s computer has the ability to monitor computer activity, track productivity, and restrict device usage even if it does not have a connection with the CurrentWare Server.

    When your employees disconnect from your network the client agent will store their computer activity data and last synced security policies locally on the device. Once they reconnect to the CurrentWare Server their data and policies will be synced.

    To further assist with offsite management, email reports and alerts can be used to stay informed of employee computer usage. So long as they have an internet connection the reports will be sent to a designated inbox.

    Port forwarding may also be used to ensure the CurrentWare Server and Client remains connected when devices leave the network.

    Will My Employees Know They Are Being Monitored?

    Depending on the needs of your environment and the laws of your jurisdiction you can use our software to monitor employee computer activity with or without its transparency-enhancing features enabled.

    Stealth Employee Monitoring
    BrowseReporter operates in stealth mode by default.

    In stealth mode, the CurrentWare Client is not visible in the system tray or control panel of the employee’s computer.

    Transparent Employee Monitoring
    BrowseReporter’s optional transparency-boosting features make it the best computer monitoring software for being transparent about tracking employee computer activity.

    These features helps your teams remain aware that their computer activity is being monitored in the workplace.

    • Monitoring Notifications: Display a custom message that periodically reminds your employees that their internet and application activity is being monitored by BrowseReporter
    • Show In System Tray: Enable this feature to make the CurrentWare Client visible in the system tray of your employee’s computers.
    • End-User Reports: Enable this feature to give your employees access to their own computer activity data. This lets them see exactly what internet and application usage data is being shared.

    Does CurrentWare Have Access to My Employees' Computer Usage Data?

    No. CurrentWare’s employee tracking software does not send your employee’s computer usage data to CurrentWare.

    All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s employee monitoring tools are stored on a database that is installed in your organization’s data center or cloud service provider.

    For more information please refer to our Terms of Service.

    Does CurrentWare Control and Monitor User Activity on Citrix, Remote Desktop, and/or Terminal Server?

    Yes. The CurrentWare Suite is supported on desktop computers, virtual machines (VMs), and servers running modern versions of the Windows operating system.

    The CurrentWare Suite (BrowseReporter, BrowseControl, AccessPatrol, and enPowerManager) is also Citrix Ready verified, allowing you to use CurrentWare Suite modules with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service (XenApp & XenDesktop service). You can install the CurrentWare Clients on your Citrix Workspace running Windows.

    In addition, all CurrentWare components are compatible with Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or Terminal Servers (TS).

    When monitoring employees in Citrix with CurrentWare you can track computer activities with PC Mode to track the individual virtual machine or with User Mode to track the activities of specific employees across multiple devices and/or virtual machines.

    Monitoring and managing your end-users with CurrentWare in a Terminal Services environment works similarly. The exception is that in a Terminal Server/Terminal Services environment the server will be registered as an individual endpoint; when you run a report from PC mode it will give you a report on all the users’ profiles in a single report.
