In the event of a security issue or compliance audit, having comprehensive security logs are your greatest asset. Unfortunately even in ideal situations these logs often don’t provide enough information or can be fairly incomprehensible to anyone but the most seasoned IT professional.
ObserveIT is a simple to install software application that audits and records all user activities performed on your server platform. Functioning like a “motion sensor security camera” for your servers, every session on your network, whether via remote access or local access is recorded and indexed. These recordings can be searched and reviewed to easily identify specific activity. The application provides detailed reporting and customizable real-time alerts to ensure compliance with your company’s security policies.
Every on-screen action that a user performs is recorded. The captures are stored in an easy to navigate SQL database tracked by time with a series of screenshot images that are optimized for efficient storage. Sessions can be expanded to show individual user activity with information as granular as every click and key stroke made. User Diaries can be configured to show actions of specific users across all monitored systems. There is even an option to hide the ObserveIT tray icon to prevent users from even knowing the software has been installed.
OberserveIT Xpress is a free version of the application with a 24-hour replay limit and monitoring of up to five servers, perfect for small office or department-level ad hoc server auditing. For larger organizations who are interested in more comprehensive system auditing, historical playback and a fully customizable configuration, the ObeserveIT Enterprise is available for a 15 day free trial.
