BlackBox Security Monitor Express
BlackBox Security Monitor Express provides you with a simple, yet powerful tool for monitoring multiple local or remote computers in your network, while encrypting data to ensure complete privacy. It reads and collects information from the target computers and sends it to your PC, enabling you to view exactly how each workstation is used.
Collect data from multiple computers and view a summary
Designed for personal use, the Express edition can be used for monitoring frequently used programs, typed keystrokes, accessed websites and web searches, sent and received emails and chat messages.
The main interface is intuitive, displaying a list of all the monitored computers and users, together with the usage summary for each. You can create exclusion lists, in order to instruct the application not to monitor certain users.
Take snapshots and other activities to be monitored
Desktop screenshots are periodically taken and saved to your computer, in order to reveal user activity. The application records keystrokes and allows you to view currently opened programs (together with the process name, the start and the end time).
Additionally, you can access a list of recently visited websites and access the page yourself, using the default browser. Web searches and e-mails are also monitored, and the program displays the search site and string.
Generate various reports and e-mail them
The application features a report generator that can create activity summaries regarding most popular websites, programs, most active users, as well as complete reports that can help you analyze the collected information.
Furthermore, it features configurable alerts for keywords, websites, applications and network traffic values. Notifications and daily activity summaries can be sent to you via e-mail or SMS messages.
All in all, BlackBox Security Monitor Express comes with all the necessary tools for keeping track of the user activity, without putting a strain on your computer’s performance. The interface is dedicated to all user categories, the response time is good and we did not come across any hangs or freezes in our tests.
