How to monitor an employee desktop?

I suspect some of my employees do not give their best performance, and access confidential company data and treat it without care. What can I do to monitor their activity on their PC or laptop without their knowledge?

Noone mentioned Ammy Admin. Why? The best solutions for corporations and private usage. It is for sure a stable and affordable soft. I use it to to assist, monitor and control, also to share remote desktop. The programm doesn't require specific settings or installation. The remote desktop is available for work within few seconds after Ammyy Admin has been started. Please pay attention that all paid licenses are lifetime. You are to make one-time purchase only. Also you may use it for free for personal usage. Like it.
Well, for this purpose I use this app 06291987myseo It can record any activities, set up website or application blocking and alert issues, remote control employees' computer. Think you this is one what you need.
You can use my PC Tattletale software. I've got a lot of customers that use it for just that:

I discovered iMonitor EAM (Employee Activity Monitor) after an employee leaked out information about the financial situation of a client. I am not a person who wants to snoop around with what others are doing but considering that a very important client was now upset that I had allowed his information to go public, I knew I had to do something. I could not imagine that the person who leaked out the information would admit to it if I asked.


I might late in answering your question but still it can help someone else who has same query.

I suggest two software, Net orbit and SniperSpy. Net orbit is to monitor computers who comes in Local Network or We can say LAN. 


Another one SniperSpy is for Remote location monitoring, you can see employee desktop in real time. 


I'd like to recommend work examiner internet monitoring software to catch ny kind of employee work time abuse even w\o their knowledge..


My partner and I had the same problem with our company and inefficient operations of all employees. So we tried with the purchase and installation of best keylogger software which is said to be good and effective in controlling and checking the efficiency of employees. After installing the aforementioned software, keylogger screenshots, without the knowledge of employees in a short time, we recognize the distinction and division of the employees who work and bring positive results throughout the business and the employees who work most of the time shirk the performance of the main tasks assigned to them.
I highly recommend installing keylogger software in your company, to allow your business wanted progress and only positive results.

I think your have two questions:

1.monitor their activity on their PC or laptop without their knowledge: for this, you can try some remote keylogger software.

2.access confidential company dat: for this, if these data they have to used in their work, you'd better use a shared folder protector to protect them; if don't, just store a computer they can't access.

I agree with Christopher, there are tools you can use. But perhaps the first thing to do is let people know that your IT folks will be monitoring their usage of company computers, etc.

Here's an article that might give you a good place to start.

How to Monitor Your Employees' PCs Without Going Too Far

"Do you know what your employees are doing on the Web? At a minimum, they're probably goofing off watching YouTube videos. At worst, they could be steering your company toward financial ruin. In this quick guide, I'll show you how to keep an eye on employee Internet use and monitor just about everything else they do with their PCs.

I can already hear the groans of disgruntled readers as I type these words (and if you're worried about privacy at work, you have ways to stop your boss from spying on you). But gone are the days when PC monitoring was an optional, draconian security measure practiced only by especially vigilant organizations. Today, more than three-quarters of U.S. companies monitor employee Internet use. If your business is in the remaining quarter that doesn't do so, you're probably overdue for a policy change."


Well, it'll be without their knowledge until you use what you learn to discipline or fire someone. Then everyone will know employees are being monitored! If you're going to monitor your employees, you might consider informing them beforehand. That way it's out in the open, plus you might make that problem you're concerned about go away.



A cheap (as in free) option would be activtrak.  http://activtrak.com/


It lets you monitor which applications employees use, as well as provides the URLs for all the websites that they visit.
