What makes it Innovative? Spector 360 provides unmatched insight and analysis into the "human aspect" of IT security. It takes the recorded Internet and computer activities from every employee, feeds that information into a database, and provides more than 50 built-in reports and unlimited customization to answer questions like: Which employees are excessively posting to Twitter and Facebook? Who is spending time on shopping sites sports sites or adult sites? Which employees are using chat or webmail services like Hotmail and Gmail? Who is printing or saving confidential documents to removable devices? Who is arriving late leaving early or taking long lunch breaks? If anything seems to be amiss from a "big picture view”, IT can drill-down to reveal highly granular details of events, patterns, keystrokes, screen snapshots, idle-time, and more.
