    Will My Employees Know They Are Being Monitored?

    Depending on the needs of your environment and the laws of your jurisdiction you can opt to deploy BrowseReporter with or without its transparency-enhancing features enabled.

    When using employee productivity monitoring and time tracking software to manage employees’ productivity the best practice is to inform them of what you will track and how that tracking data will be used to evaluate their performance.

    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. Your employee will not be able to uninstall the CurrentWare client or prevent it from running.

    Transparent Employee Monitoring

    BrowseReporter includes a variety of transparency-boosting features to help your employees 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 Work With Remote Teams?

    Yes. CurrentWare’s computer monitoring software allows you to monitor remote teams through a variety of deployment options such as an offsite mode that works without access to the internet, connecting through a VPN, port forwarding, or by installing it on a cloud platform of your choice.

    Who Uses Employee Monitoring Software?

    Employee computer monitoring software is used by a wide variety of industries. It is most commonly found in industries that are required to monitor employee computer activity for data security compliance purposes. Examples of common industries include financial services, government, and health care.

    Will CurrentWare's Employee Productivity Tracking Work When Employees Leave the Network?

    Yes. The client agent has the ability to monitor employee computer activity even if it loses connection to the CurrentWare Server. This makes the CurrentWare Suite the best productivity management software for remote work.

    When a user disconnects from the network the client agent’s offsite management features will store their activity data locally on their computer. Once they reconnect to your network their data will be synced to the CurrentWare server.

    Note: If you wish to get activity data from employee computers that are outside of the network, they will need to be able to communicate with the CurrentWare Server. Once a connection is reestablished you will receive your employee’s computer usage data and any CurrentWare policy updates will take effect.

    Is Employee 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).

    Will CurrentWare Track Web Browsing When Users Uses Private Browsing Modes or Delete Their Browsing History?

    Yes. CurrentWare’s software client collects user activity data independent of the browser’s browsing history.

    Internet browsing data will remain intact for use in reports and dashboards even if the user deletes their web browsing history in their browser or uses a private browsing function such as Incognito Mode On Google Chrome, Private Browsing On Mozilla Firefox, and InPrivate Browsing Window On Microsoft Edge.

    How is the CurrentWare Suite Secured?

    CurrentWare is committed to the security of its platform, its users and their data. 

     

    • All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s solutions is stored in your organization’s data center or cloud service provider; the data is not sent to CurrentWare.
    • The web console cannot be accessed without a username and password. For an added layer of authentication security you can enable two-factor authentication.
    • You can selectively enable/disable what data is tracked and delete old records automatically.
