Monitoring User activity on Network.
Posted on 2012-09-19
We have a customer who would like to monitor users activity on there network. They are running windows server 2008, approx 50 user running Win XP on most workstations. Also some users do use Apple Macs to log on to the network as well.The users user different web browsers Internet explorer, Chrome, Firefox.
Is there a way to do this with the current OS , or is there additional software we would require.
An Example of this is
When User1 logs on to the network.
When user1 Access the internet, which sites, how long browsing these sites.
If possible when the machine is lock for user1 pressing Ctrl Alt Del or when the machine screen saver comes on or there is no activity on the machine for long periods of time (i.e Over night if user1 has not logged off).
When user1 logs off.
keeping the logs for a maximum of 3 months.
This is monitoring every user on the network.
Is this possible with one piece of software or do we need separate software for each aspect of the monitoring? if so what is the software(s) we can use?
