Using RHUB Remote Support Servers to Monitor Employee Computers

Protecting corporate data and intellectual property can be an important function of IT. When the corporation issues computers to employees, the use is implicitly for work related functions. To ensure proper use of corporate computing equipment, IT may need to monitor such use.
Effective monitoring of employee use of company computers can prove to be a significant challenge for any organization. Even so, it is vital today for companies to keep their fingers on the pulse of employee use of company equipment. There is simply too much riding on the line to avoid this issue. With the ability to monitory employee computer usage properly, it is possible to glean all of the information necessary to make informed decisions while protecting internal assets from external forces that may be admitted into your company by unsuspecting employees.
Businesses have numerous responsibilities and among those responsibilities are knowing all of the information to which employees may be unwittingly exposing the company computers and networks. A RHUB remote support server provides an effective method for monitoring, controlling, and recording all of your employees’ computer activity. As a result, it is possible to prevent the loss of critical as well as confidential data from being siphoned from the organization while also assuring employee productivity.
Remotely monitoring employee usage of company computers using a RHUB remote support server is quite easy. Simply follow these steps as outlined (see the image below)
1. Log into an employee computer as an administrator user
2. Install the TurboMeeting client and schedule a remote access meeting. The “Computer” field should be given the same name as the employee name.
3. Begin the scheduled meeting.
4. Click “Tools” and check “Hide this meeting.”
5. Logout from the computer.
From this point, you now have the ability to monitor, control, and record all activity from that computer. Even better, you can do so from any location and at any time.
Access security is enforced by the Meeting ID and Meeting Password. For instance, if a meeting is scheduled as an internal meeting by checking “Only attendees from my network,” the security is further strengthened by your firewall. This will prevent any party from outside your firewall from accessing the remote computer.
It should be noted that there are no legal impediments that would prevent this type of computer monitoring. The computers that you provide to your employees are your property. Furthermore, as their employer, you have every legal right to know how your employees are using those computers. As a business owner, it is incumbent upon you to ensure the best interests of your business, and this is one method that allows you to do that. Furthermore, as employees, they should not abuse the privilege that you have granted in the use of a computer.
RHUB Remote Support servers provide you with the ability to monitor all activities on any company computer while preventing the unauthorized distribution of sensitive corporate information. It also allows you to prevent, detect, respond to, monitor, and review measures for reducing perceived risks of corporate data loss in an effective manner.
