Network Enforcer Works...
Network Enforcer is a powerful activity supervision
and enforcement tool. Without violating user privacy (like
activity recorders do), Network Enforcer ensures that users
stay on task and do not perform inappropriate behaviors on
your network, while not recording activities unless it relates
to a direct behavior filter violation. Network Enforcer uses
a set of very flexible filtering mechanisms with adjustable
security levels that you configure so that it can react according
when users repeatedly violate network behavior filters you
create. Filters can be based on the following behaviors: keystrokes
typed, emails sent/received, windows opened, applications used,
websites visited, files/documents usage, and internet connection
activity. Network Enforcer can block specific websites, applications,
and windows when they are used, as well as alert you when any
of the filters are violated a set number of times.
For example: you can configure Network Enforcer to only alert
you when low security filters have been violated 10 times by
a user, whereas you can have Network Enforcer alert you immediately
when any high security filters are violated. The number of
violations required before Network Enforcer reacts are called
The Network Enforcer software has two components - the client,
and the viewer/management application.
The client is a small program that you will never have to interact
with directly. The client is installed on each computer on
your network and gets its settings from the central location
you install the viewer/management application on. The client
is remotely controlled via the management application so you
never have to directly do anything on the computer it is running
on. The client can be physically, or remotely installed from
within the management application. The client does all the
supervision and filtering work - when it sees a user violating
a behavior filter it will take appropriate action, as configured
to do so.
The Viewer/Management Application
The viewer, or management application, is the main component
you will be interacting with while using Network Enforcer.
This application allows you to add computers that you want
to manage on your network, configure them, and then finally
deploy the client to them. This application allows you to
view all user alerts logs, warns you when users violate behavior
filters, creates activity reports, and more.
