Screen Capturing & Computer Monitoring

Screen Snapshot will be taken every once in a while, like a surveillance camera aiming at the monitored computers. It takes a picture of the entire screen and displays exact actions, like Facebook, workstation games, internet searches, online shopping, file transfers, web-based emails like Hotmail, AOL email, Gmail, Yahoo mail and hundreds of others, providing an easiest way to see what employees are doing on computers as if you were standing right there.

Screenshots are captured and saved chronologically so you can view them when you wish. Because of the large number of data, SurveilStar screen snapshot is setting not record by default. As an IT manager, you can deploy the Screen Snapshot Policy to choose whether to record screenshots or not according to the actual need.

After installing SurveilStar agent on users' computers, controller can create a Screen Snapshot Policy and flexibly monitor employees' use of computer.

Screen Snapshot Policy

In SurveilStar Console, click menu Policies > Screen Monitoring, then click Add button to create a screen snapshot policy. Then you will see Property panel on the right as the picture below. In the following example, Screen Snapshot will always record.
