The Benefits of Monitoring Employees

Enforce Computer Use Policies

An employee computer use policy helps ensure that your team members are aware of their responsibilities, but it’s not enough.

To make your policies truly effective you need visibility into which employees are visiting high-risk, inappropriate, or unproductive websites.

Find Bandwidth Hogs On Your Network

Are bandwidth upgrades necessary, or is an employee’s misuse of the internet what’s causing bottlenecks?

With CurrentWare's bandwidth monitoring features you can identify bandwidth hogs in your network, then block them to reduce unnecessary strain on your network’s bandwidth.

Is Stealth Monitoring Software Legal?

The legality of employee monitoring depends entirely on regulations and other legislation that are specific to the organization, its industry, and the jurisdiction of its employees.

The recommended best practice is to have employees read and sign a technology in the workplace policy where they acknowledge that they are aware that their activity is being monitored.

An example of mandated employee consent can be seen in Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which requires that employers inform employees that they are being monitored in the workplace, why they are being monitored, how their data will be used, and the methods that will be used to monitor them (security cameras, employee computer monitoring software, etc).

In the majority of jurisdictions using stealth monitoring software without the informed consent of employees will be against workplace privacy laws.
